A bill is being heard on the State Senate floor tomorrow, SB 1434 by Senator Dick Ackerman of Irvine, which will allow for the chemical poisoning of Audubon cottontail rabbits, because some landscape managers are upset that the rabbits eat their petunias.

Body of Email:
Dear California State Senators:
Please oppose SB 1434, the Bunny Bill by Sen. Ackerman, on the Senate floor tomorrow. This bad bill will allow killing of cottontail rabbits. We have too little wildlife in Orange County. Killing the Audubon cottontail rabbits is not appropriate. People who live near habitat areas should adjust to the rabbits with appropriate landscaping. Killing them is not the answer. People are better than that.
