Comments on SB 5613

Melinda Frazier wrote 6 months ago

Proposed Senate Bill 5613 would take away the Sheriff's ability to utilize hounds to remove cougars for public safety reasons. This bill would extremely hamstring Sheriff's throughout the state in protecting their citizens. It would also cause an extreme extra burden on WDFW's already too thin enforcement staff.
