Canned hunting is the killing of an animal in an enclosure to obtain a trophy. The animals are sometimes tame exotic mammals; some, in fact, have been sold by petting zoos to the canned hunting operation. These animals do not know to run from humans. Many groups that support hunting scorn canned hunting for its unsportsmanlike practice; patrons are guaranteed a kill. Several states now ban canned hunting operations, but the practice is spreading.

The practice of "Canned Hunting" is cruel and unnecessary. We the people of the United States ask that this practice be stopped.

The Abolish Canned Hunting petition to US CONGRESS was written by Mike Starr and is in the category Animal Rights at GoPetition.
