Fish & Game Commission Rejects HSUS Bear Petition

April 21, 2022

This is a BIG win for conservation and hunting in California!

This evening, the California Fish and Game Commission (CFGC) rejected HSUS Petition 2021-027 among the final items on their agenda. CRPA and a coalition of other conservation and hunting groups have been fighting the petition that would have essentially put an end to bear hunting in California, while also devastating environmental balance among California wildlife populations.

Through the work of CRPA and a coalition of other like minded groups, we had over 300 emails and letters to CDFW. After extensive review of the HSUS petition, both CA Department of Fish & Wildlife (CDFW) staff and FGC staff recommended that the Petition be denied!

Thank you to all who opposed this petition. This really shows what we can do when working together and with member support!
