By Andrew Walden @ 8:50 PM :: 4500 Views :: Second Amendment

by Andrew Walden

Tom Lodge of the Hawaii Hunting Association is providing a list of hunting-related bills introduced to the Legislature.  Thursday was the deadline to introduce new bills.

Of these, HB466, which makes surgical claw removal of cats a misdemeanor, has been set for a hearing Feb 2.  Says Lodge, "HB466 is going to be heard on Monday and we'd appreciate killing it because coming with it will be tail docking, ear trims and pig hunting dogs."
