MFOA is excited to partner with Maine Citizens Against Puppy Mills (MCAPM) this legislative session, through our joint submission of  L.D 335: “An Act to Prohibit the Sale of Dogs and Cats in Pet Shops.” If enacted, this bill will ban the retail sales of puppies and kittens in Maine pet shops.

2015 Update on Maine's "Canned Hunting" Ranches Print E-mail

A 2012 CBS news story reported that canned hunts are big business: there are an estimated 1,000 game preserves in at least 25 states [over 500 in Texas alone], with some 5,000 "exotic ranches" in North America. Most of these ranches operate on a "no-kill, no-pay" policy, so the owner does his best to ensure clients get the trophy kill they came for, often by offering guides who are familiar with the animals' locations and habits, including congregating around feeding stations [similar to bear baiting]. Many states have limited or banned canned hunts, but there are currently no federal laws regulating the practice.
