NEWSLINK: Law to Protect Wild Cats Introduced

A new bill based on successful conservation laws in Africa is receiving praise from Born Free USA, a welfare and wildlife conservation group. Representative Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) introduced H.R. 2697, legislation that would provide funding for the conservation of wild cats and dogs (felids and canids), again this year, after an earlier version of the bill (H.R. 5836) failed to pass in 2014. 

Many of these felid and canid species were once considered common but are now declining due to threats like habitat loss and disease, which means that long-term survival for them is in jeopardy.
