NV: Commission Meeting

Nevada's Predator Management Program is a state effort designed to kill bobcats, coyotes, foxes, bears and mountain lions. The program is funded by a $3 fee that hunters pay when they buy a tag. The more hunters there are, the more money is raised to kill wildlife in addition to those animals killed by hunters. And a new law requires that 80% of the money be used directly to kill wildlife.

Thanks to people like you who decided to take a stand for wildlife and tell Nevada, "NO MORE KILLING," we have gathered thousands of signatures and letters opposing the Predator Management Plan that will be hand delivered tomorrow.

But now we really need your help! Please attend the commission meeting on May 13th!


We must pack the house at the Commission meeting to show them just how many Nevada residents care about our wildlife. If you want to help mountain lions, we need you to be there. Please come show your support:

WHAT: Nevada Board of Wildlife Commissioners Meeting
WHEN: Friday May 13 at 9:00 a.m. and Saturday May 14 at 8:00 a.m.
WHERE: Truckee Meadows Community College, Sierra Building Room 108
7000 Dandini Blvd, Reno, NV


View the agenda for additional information (see item #9) and for details on teleconferencing if you're in the Las Vegas or Elko areas. Mountain lions will most likely be discussed Friday morning and into the early afternoon. When comments on item #9 are being heard, this is the time to tell the commission:

"Please reject the 2017 Predator Management Plan."


MLF Associate Director Lynn Cullens and our partners at the Nevada Wildlife Alliance will also be in attendance and speaking to the Commissioners. They can answer any questions you may have. We are all in this together, so be sure to say hello.

Thank you for your support and for caring about Nevada's mountain lions.
