TURNER VOTES FOR CRUELTY TO WILDLIFE
What: Peaceful rally protesting Rep. Mike Turner's
anti-animal vote on H.J. Res. 69
Where: Outside Turner's Dayton Office, 120 W. 3rd St. (2nd
St. side of Federal Bldg.)
When: Wednesday, May 10, 11:30 am - 12:30 pm.
Aware of Rep. Turner's history of
voting against animals and the environment, local advocacy
group Vote 4 Animals wants him held accountable for
his anti-wildlife vote on House Joint Resolution 69. This
resolution overturned a humane, science-based, protective rule
for native carnivores on 16 national wildlife refuges in
Alaska. The House majority vote sanctioned the killing of

them after landing, and using steel leghold traps and snares
to trap grizzly and black bears.
The resolution, authored by Alaska Rep.
Don Young, is designed to boost prey animals for recreational
hunters. It had the backing of the National Rifle
Association, the Safari Club, and some hunting guides. These
barbaric practices have been the rule in Alaska for several

to protect some of Alaska's iconic wildlife living in refuge
areas. H.J. Res. 69 was passed by the Senate, and signed into
law by President Trump on April 3, 2017.
On April 20, 2017 the Center for
Biological Diversity filed a lawsuit in federal district court
in Anchorage against the U.S. Dept. of the Interior and
