By this time next week, we hope to have received the first 1500 window stickers that will make a statement against the State Game Commission. They are designed with the business community in mind, as our goal is to sign up as many businesses as possible to a coalition that supports disbanding the Commission.
Our goal remains to keep constant pressure on this commission and to raise the public’s awareness about this group of thugs that has the goal of destroying wildlife in our state and frankly continue a tradition that goes on nationally.
With the recent decision to expand the killing of bears and the trapping of cougars, this commission once again made it clear that it is far from the mainstream, and moving forward with a radical and deadly agenda that serves only one special interest: the livestock industry!
We hope to build a coalition of businesses that will help us press the governor to stop this madness and help force our state representatives to take action to reign in this commission and hopefully move to strip it of any power or oversight. From Santa Fe to Carlsbad to Las Cruces to Taos, our goal is to see the windows of businesses proudly displaying this emblem for all to see. The bottom line people in our state love and support all wildlife species, from coyotes to, prairie dogs, to wolves! The State Game Commission is completely out of step with the mainstream and represents only the 4% of people in this state that actually hunt.
In other words, over 96% of our state does not hunt and while all 96% may not support our objectives, polling shows that a vast majority do. If we are to change the system, then we must impact those that run this commission; they work in the shadows and must be forced into the light. No governor wants to hear from the business community or large numbers of citizens that they are out of step, but this governor is currently hearing and ignoring the cries from so many, while allowing animals to whither in pain caught in traps, snares and being shot for trophies. Her actions and continued support for such carnage remain appalling and are part of her legacy of destruction to our state.
We are the majority, all of us committed to saving wolves, bears and cougars. We are the voice for the coyote and the prairie dog that continue to suffer at the hands of ignorance. But this time we are creating our own trap, one that will catch those that seek to harm, and not let go. We will hold them and allow their suffering to continue until at last we break their will. Justice takes time and requires commitment.
If you have a business in New Mexico please contact us at once, and let us get a sticker to you! A donation will help, but we will send it for free, if you commit to putting in a highly visible location and sign onto our coalition! If you love wildlife, if you believe that trapping and the unsustainable killing of wildlife should be stopped, then join us in this and the many efforts including our film that we are working on every day.
The State Game and Fish Commission must be abolished and we must find new revenue streams to fund this byzantine agency if we are to ever bring it into the 21st century. We can help by keeping a spotlight on their misdeeds. Please join us in our fight!
These stickers are available to members for pre-order today too! ($5 donation requested)
