>We have confirmed that the New York bill banning "canned shoots" was
>delivered to Governor Pataki's desk on Thursday, and he has ten days
>from yesterday to sign or veto the bill -- but he may act any day!
>We need you to keep your phone calls coming! The bill bans the
>trophy shooting of captive exotic mammals, such as zebras, boars,
>buffalo, and exotic sheep, on fenced property of any acreage. Please
>urge Governor Pataki to sign the canned shoot bill (A4609a and
>S2735a). Tell him canned shoots are unsporting, inhumane, and have
>nothing to do with hunting in the wild. Contact the Governor at:

>The phone calls are the most important, but you can also fax or email
>Email Form: http://www.state.ny.us/governor/form.htm
>If you have called already, please call again! Thank you for your help!
