I thought I would put this here because I've seen a lot of Pennsylvania guys here and I didn't notice it being mentioned yet.This lady would like to ban trapping bobcats in Pa. I don't if she doesn't know the truth or if she is just plain lying

Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session
MEMORANDUM
Posted: June 20, 2019 01:55 PM
From: Senator Lisa M. Boscola
To: All Senate members
Subject: Prohibiting the trapping of bobcats


In the near future I plan on introducing legislation that would ban the trapping of bobcats (Lynx Rufus) in Pennsylvania.

​These beautiful animals are commonly trapped in foot snares that break will break bones in their legs and feet. Once caught, it is not uncommon for these traps to go unchecked for days on end, leaving the bobcat to starve to death.

​Additionally, other states in the Union are actively considering banning the practice. The Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials have identified robust prices for pelts as the motivation for the increase in kills. Bobcat-fur coats made in China and Russia sell for tens of thousands of dollars.

​Furthermore, this legislation will aim to ban this inhumane practice and allow for these large cats to roam our Commonwealth freely, and not be exploited to sell their pelts overseas. It is my wish that you will join me in sponsoring this legislation.

Wow! She needs to get her facts straight. Foot snares in PA? It is common to leave traps unchecked for days? PA has a 36 hr. check law. The trappers in her district need to contact her office that she needs to understand trapping and the PA laws before making such statements.

Does she have an email address?


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

The woman is a mouth piece for PETA and does not know facts or deliberately lies about them.
