The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), states that hound hunters use packs of dogs — sometimes 40 or more — to chase bears, bobcats, cougars, deer, or other animals until they try to climb a tree, or until the dogs catch them and tear them apart. The hunting dogs themselves are frequently injured or killed during the hunt. Hunters usually fit the dogs’ collars with GPS or radio telemetry devices so that they don’t even have to keep up with the chase — they can relax while the dogs do the work. With dogs after them, bears and cougars may not meekly scamper up a tree but may fight back. A single swipe from a bear can wound or kill a dog. The HSUS says that hunters often treat the dogs like hunting equipment rather than family members. When dogs don’t hunt well or get old, sick, injured, or pregnant, some hunters shoot them or abandon them to starve.

look at this paragraph "sometimes" as many as 40 or more.. SOMETIMES uh not in CA one hunter is allowed ONE DOG

"frequently injured.". really?how many times is "frequently? "usually fit with collars".. Really? how many times is "usually" Hunters "often" treat their dogs.. really? how often is "often"? "some hunters shoot " etc.. REALLY? how many is "some"? when you read articles like this use your brain.. this is generalization with absolutely NO statistical back up.. ask you assembly person to oppose this bill

"We are going to use the ballot box and the democratic process to stop all hunting in the United States ... We will take it species by species until all hunting is stopped in California. Then we will take it state by state. "Wayne Pacelle, (HSUS)

can there be any question what the real motives are of the HSUS? If you have a bird dog , a spaniel, a labrador and you hunt birds or ducks please read the above.. it means YOU..
