The legislature's Environment Committee took testimony yesterday on an Act Concerning Cecil's Law. It would prohibit the importation of big five African species. A Woodbury resident submitted testimony in support of the anti-trophy hunting bill, but called for amendments. Nadia McCartney supports Humane Society amendments which ensure that federal law doesn't preempt Connecticut's efforts and adds the African buffalo to the list of protected species. 45 airlines have stopped transporting some or all types of hunting trophies, especially that of the Africa Big Five. The bill is named for a lion killed just outside a National Park in Zimbabwe in 2015.
