SB22-031 - Prohibit Hunting Bobcat Lynx And Mountain Lion

Summary

Of all the bills introduced early in the legislative session, this one seems to have already garnered the most opposition from the Colorado grassroots, especially in rural areas. With the forced introduction of wolves this last year being passed mostly by urban dwellers, some Colorado ranchers are already feeling the effects. An elimination of the hunting and management of three more predators would have a major impact on deer and elk populations as well as animal agriculture.
