Texas state officials are considering a ban on "gassing," a barbarous hunting technique used to drive snakes out of their underground shelters. Hunters pour gasoline into snake dens and capture snakes that emerge seeking fresh air.
Gassing is already banned in dozens of states, including all the states bordering Texas, for good reason: Underground dens offer important shelter to hundreds of species, including foxes, lizards, birds and invertebrates. In Texas 20 endangered species living underground can be harmed by suffocating gas fumes.
Only with your support can we convince Texas wildlife officials to stop the cruel and unnecessary practice of using noxious chemicals to hunt wildlife.
