      Sportsmen's Alliance Introduces Animal and Ecological Terrorism Act

      Take a moment THIS WEEK to call your STATE Senator and Delegate's office to tell them you OPPOSE this misguided, neo-nazi initiative. This is important. Please forward onto others who wish to continue to live in a democracy.

      SPORTSMEN'S GROUP TARGETS ANTI-HUNTERS

      January 10, 2003 -- THE U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance is preparing to launch
      two nationwide legislative campaigns that may prove to be the largest steps
      yet taken to bring about the ultimate defeat of the animal rights movement.
      The Alliance will work on two fronts to defeat the anti's. First, it will
      work with key legislators to introduce model bills to help states prosecute
      animal rights terrorists and organizations. The Alliance will also campaign for
      model legislation that will outlaw unproven birth control methods for wildlife.

      The U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance prepared The Animal and Ecological Terrorism Act,
      draft legislation to combat animal rights terrorism, and is promoting the bill
      to legislators in all 50 states.

      The model bill officially recognizes animal and eco-terrorism as a form of
      domestic terrorism; increases penalties for persons participating in
      politically motivated acts of animal or eco-terrorism and creates specific penalties for those who encourage, assist or finance these acts of terrorism.

      The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a bipartisan membership
      association for conservative state lawmakers, has agreed to review the
      bill for endorsement. The draft legislation was recently presented before ALEC's
      Criminal Justice Task Force and the Homeland Security Working Group.

      The Alliance is working with key legislators in Mississippi, New York, Texas,
      Washington and Wisconsin to have the bill introduced in 2003. The Alliance will
      initiate a campaign to rally the support of sportsmen and other groups that are
      affected by animal rights terrorism to back the legislation.

      Anti-hunters continue to pressure local lawmakers to permit birth control as a
      wildlife management tool. The U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance is leading the fight
      against the anti-hunting threat.

      None of the drugs used in birth control projects on wildlife is approved for
      human consumption by the FDA or the USDA, despite the fact that venison is the
      most popular game food. Whether the drugs are safe for the deer or other
      wildlife is another concern. Research by Rutgers University and other institutions shows that birth control methods are not effective on
      free-ranging animals and could be detrimental to wildlife.

      Over the next year, Alliance will work with state wildlife agencies, key
      legislators and professional lobbyists to introduce model legislation
      that requires these health concerns be addressed before permits for future
      projects can be issued.
