Nebraska Bill to Stop Trophy Hunting of Lions Has Passed Its 1st Hurdle

Legislative Bill 671 just passed the first round of approval in the Nebraska Senate with a 31 to 5 vote. LB 671, authored by Senator Chambers would repeal the 2012 law that authorized the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission to conduct mountain lion hunts.

Earlier this year, Senator Chambers vowed to block funding for the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission if the mountain lion hunting season continued. So far, he has managed to keep that promise, and the political pressure it has created is possibly helping to propel LB 671 to a successful passage.
