Press Release

Washington, DC – Representative Earl Blumenauer (OR-03), co-chair of the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus, released the following statement on the Trump administration’s decision to roll back protections for animals in national preserves in Alaska:

“The Trump administration’s decision to roll back these sensible animal protections is outrageous. Without this ban, the hunting of bear cubs and wolf pups in their dens and the shooting of bears from airplanes will return. Without wildlife, our national preserves are just scenery. These practices have no place on our public lands and in our society.”
