2014 Bear referendum Op-Eds by Robert Fisk, Jr.
Written by MFOA   
Wednesday, 20 January 2016

In 2004 Maine Friends of Animals partnered with The Humane Society of United States for a state referendum to ban the hunting of bears in Maine with the use of bait, hounds and traps. MFOA's President and Executive Director, Robert Fisk, Jr. spent two years on that effort and served as the director and spokesperson for the campaign. MFOA's Falmouth office served as campaign headquarters.

In the repeat referendum campaign of 2014, MFOA played a strong but lesser role as Fisk remained a valued contributor particularly in publishing informative Op-Eds in Maine's four main daily newspapers covering the main issues of the referendum.
