Action Alert

Rhode Island: Help ban cruel canned hunts

This action is for Rhode Island residents only.

Legislation is pending in Rhode Island to finally ban canned hunting. Animals on canned hunts are bred for the bullet, then stocked and shot within fenced enclosures for guaranteed trophies.

Over half of the states in the U.S. have already enacted full or partial bans on canned hunts. There is no sport in this cruel pay-to-play killing.

Please urge your state legislators to support legislation to prohibit the hunting of captive mammals as well as the import of mammals for captive hunting. An Act Relating to Fish And Wildlife – Artificial Propagation of Game (HB 7308)/SB 2691) was filed by Representatives O’Brien, Vella-Wilkinson, McEntee, Amore, and Morin and by Senator Archambault.
