Hunting, Fishing, Trapping Amendment Pondered

KSAL StaffFebruary 9, 2015

Two Republican state representatives are proposing a constitutional amendment that would guarantee the right to hunt, fish and trap in Kansas.

Rep. Adam Lusker, of Frontenac, says the amendment is a reaction to bans or restrictions pushed by animal rights supporters in other states. For example, trapping is banned in Arizona, California, Colorado, Massachusetts and Washington.

18 states have constitutional amendments guaranteeing the right to hunt and fish. A similar effort failed in Missouri last year but a sponsor says he plans to pursue the idea again.

Kristin Simon, who works with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, says the group opposes such amendments because they make it difficult to ban hunting and trapping methods the some people consider cruel.
