Alicia Silverstone Calls for End to Hounding

The vegan actress took to Twitter asking fellow Californians to help the ASPCA ban the hounding of bears and bobcats.

Vegan, actress, activist, and author Alicia Silverstone called for help from California residents Sunday to join the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in calling on state assembly members to support legislative bill SB 1221. The bill would make it against the law to allow a dog to pursue a bear or bobcat at any time, with few exceptions. According to the ASPCA, a 2011 Mason-Dixon poll indicated 83 percent of Californians oppose bear hounding, and less than one percent of state residents hunt. Only 18 of 50 states still allow hounding practices, although hunting-heavy states such as Pennsylvania and Montana have already banned the practice.
