ANIMAL RIGHTS ISSUES IN SENATE RACES

Every single Republican senator except the ailing Johnny Isakson (who has a terrible record regarding animals) voted to allow hunters for the 1st time into our national park wildlife refuge in Alaska. 220 Republican congresspersons listed below voted for the bill which Donald Trump quickly signed. The bill pushed by Congress' worst animal abuser Don Young of Alaska allows aerial hunting of animals, baiting of bear traps, the use of hidden snares and the murder of bear cubs and wolf puppies in their dens by stalking trophy hunters and other hunters terrorizing animals. 220 Repubicans in the House including Marsha Blackburn of Tennessealso voted to murder nearly 1000 sea lions.
