Members of the Hunting and Gaming Association of Mexico held recently a protest to criticize a senatorial bill that seeks to prohibit hunting nationwide.
According to protestors the bill would put in jeopardy the billionaire industry.
Also, the proposal would put in risk the extinction of some species as the bill includes provisions to prohibit sustainable units and protection of reserved areas.
Club Faisanes leader Alberto Adame said hunting is a significant economic activity in Baja California due to the permits issued by the State.
As or August the industry was worth $14 billion countrywide. Adame expressed his concerns as the bill proposed by Senator Ricardo Monreal seeks to shut down sustainable units while proposing the government to hold protection activities.
