Don’t Hunt and Slaughter Wild Bobcats

Target: Cameron F. Clark, Director, Indiana Department of Natural Resources

Goal: Abandon plans to hunt Indiana’s wild bobcats.

Wild bobcats in Indiana may soon be slaughtered. The state’s Department of Natural Resources is proposing a hunting and trapping season for the wild breed of cat.

The wild bobcat was once an endangered species. However, its population has grown. Nevertheless, an open hunting season of the animal will surely deplete its numbers until it once again faces a crisis. All of the recovery that has been made in recent years will be erased.

The wild bobcat is a vulnerable species and must be protected. Sign the petition to demand that the state government of Indiana abandon plans to openly hunt and slaughter bobcats.


Dear Mr. Clark,

The wild bobcats of your state tell the story of conservationists’ success. Once endangered, now their population has thrived. However, your organization advocates for an open hunting and trapping season for these animals. Should this be done, all progress will be lost.

The bobcats have neither attacked pets nor humans. Even attacks on livestock are rare. There is no reason to condemn them to slaughter and set their population back to endangered status once more. I demand that you abandon plans to hunt and trap wild bobcats.

  2. What is wrong with the D N R/ Who hires these idiots. What happened to protection our species and natural environment?Stop this senseless slaughter.

    leave it to the government to think this slaughter up they’re always out there killing something horses coyotes wolves anything that breaths has to die now that stupid ignorant Trump is allowing hunters to bring elephant parts they’ve shot into the states this all goes back to retarded sons who love to hunt big game this has to be stopped all this killing pretty soon you’ll have to go to a museum to see what an animal looked like

  4. When will this barbarism stop. More and more people oppose it, it’s not a sign of strength but of poor morals. Leave them alone and do better than this.

  5. Why does the D N R turn a blind eye to protecting so many of our species & their natural environment? Why can’t they see this is wrong? They should be doing all possible to protect & preserve what we now have for future generations before they are all gone.
