Raccoon Torture Bill Defeated!

March 2014

Georgia House Bill (H.B.) 423 would have allowed the use of live raccoons in field trials. During field trials, terrified caged raccoons are flung high into trees or are hauled across a field or body of water as frantic, barking dogs give chase. The raccoons are forced to endure this ordeal repeatedly—sometimes for hours on end. We launched a campaign and rallied our members to contact their legislators, and H.B. 423 did not pass.
