Urge Governor Perry to End Internet Hunting!
A facility in Texas allows people to log onto the Internet from a computer anywhere in the world, and with the simple point-and-click of a mouse, fire a rifle at live animals. A bill, H.B. 2026, to ban the shooting of animals over the Internet has passed the Texas Legislature and is now on the Governor's desk. Many states have banned this unethical and unsporting practice and, with your help, Texas could be next.
It is critical that Governor Perry sign this bill into law. Texas is the only state with an internet hunting operation, so this legislation would effectively end the practice altogether. The bill must be signed this week and your voice is needed!
