Arizona's SB 1200 Becomes Law

Arizona's legislature passed and the governor has signed a law that gives special interest trophy hunters and ranchers control of virtually all wildlife decisions in the state. This law represents a return to the 1950's approach to wildlife management which can best be summarized as "if you can't kill it we don't need it".
As a citizen of Arizona I feel that this is nothing more than a blatant abuse of power and a violation of my right to participate in the future of the states wildlife and natural resources. Placing control in the hands of special interests who hate Gray Wolf reintroduction efforts and who approach every wildlife issue with a gun is incomprehensible and will result in an all out war on Arizona wildlife.
Please help Arizonans who love this states wildlife fight this unjust and ultimately cruel law. The future of the state at this moment is a mecca for those who enjoy wildlife by putting a bullet in it. The future of Arizona's wildlife is now as somebody's trophy on the wall.
We must do everything in our power to stop this insane law. It must not stand!
