Sb 551

Got this in an email today from the president of the Pa Fox and Coyote Hunter’s Association:

Terrible News - SB 551 , advocated by PETA/HSUS, provides housing standards for dogs.
When introduced a few months ago, it contained our language exempting our hounds from the tethering/temperature provisions which we fought so hard for over a 5 year period.
Recently the bill has been amended to overturn our exemption. It now prohibits all dogs being outside for longer that 15 minutes whenever the temperature is above 90 degrees or below 32 degrees.
We are asking all members to advise your state senator that you are incensed that our exclusion has been negated, merely two years after the legislature prudently voted to grant it, since sporting dog breed's training and conditioning requires an outdoor environment.

Again, please take action. Don't assume the "other guy" will do it !
This bill will create havoc for us and actually harm our hounds.

This Bill as written will END outdoor dogs.... Gaydos of Allegheny Co. and Ortitay of Allegheny/ Washington Co. are against it. CALL your representative and tell them to oppose this Bill... Bring in your dogs at 90 and below 32. Imposing Big City rules on all of Pa. Lady from Westmoreland Co. who sponsored this Bill is a PETA / HSUS puppet....
