(Neb.)-Senator Expects Repeal Of Lion Hunting Legislation
(Chadron)- KCOW in Alliance is reporting that State Senator Ken Haar of Malcolm expects the legislature to repeal the law allowing for a mountain lion hunting season in Nebraska.
According to their story, Haar, who visited Chadron over the weekend, told the Omaha World-Herald that he expects Omaha Sen. Ernie Chambers’ Legislative Bill 671 to pass. The legislation would repeal the 2012 law that authorized the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission to conduct cougar hunts.
In exchange, Chambers won’t block the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission’s request for additional parks maintenance funding.
Haar says it is politics that makes sense. He says repealing the bill will serve as a compromise.
Chambers’ bill would not change the state law that allows people to shoot a cougar in self-defense or to protect livestock.
