Bear Hunt Vote at Clark County Advisory Board

Wants a Permanent Bear Hunt

The CC CAB voted unanimously Sept 20th “to adopt a permanent regulation to manage black bears using current sound data to allow NDOW to fund and sustain a black bear population.”  Basically the committee, which is appointed by Clark County Commissioners, voted to kill the bears in order to save them. They said they needed the money from the hunt, which amounted to less than $21,000 to study and manage the bears. Thanks to all of you who wrote letters to the CC CAB.  There were 194 units of correspondence, either letters or emails.  Unfortunately, Paul Dixon, Chair of the Clark County CAB, developed a spreadsheet which he showed most of the correspondence being “emotional” and not based on sound science.  However, he did not do the same for the 37 letters in support of the bear hunt.


On Saturday, the Nevada Wildlife Commission voted unanimously in favor of making the bear hunt permanent. Expect a larger quota for the bear hunt in the 2012 season. The season will extend from August 21 to December 31. 



Henderson City Council passes major revisions

to its Title 7 Animal Ordinance


By a unanimous vote, the City Council on Tuesday, Sept 20th approved major revisions which should impact current operations of pet stores in the City.  Pet stores must provide substantial information on each animal regarding where it came from, illnesses, etc.  The ordinance which was revised by Animal Control and the City Attorney’s Office also included retail and dealer regulations.  Some members of local animal advocacy groups, including the Las Vegas Valley Humane Society, had the opportunity to meet with Animal Control, and suggest changes to the ordinance.


A copy of the ordinance is available by emailing lvvhs@cox.net.  The Las Vegas Valley Humane Society testified in favor of the revisions, but pointed out that the cat fancier permit allowed for only 5 cats as opposed to the 10 cats in Clark County and that feral cats continue to be illegal in Henderson.  The LVVHS recommended that the City adopt a trap-neuter-vaccinate-return to custodian ordinance similar to that adopted by Clark County.
