The House has passed a bill that allows polar bears to be imported from Canada for hunting and opens up most public land to "sportsmen."
And this does NOT sit well with Bill Maher!
The pundit called the Sportsmen’s Heritage Act of 2012 "outrageous bullshiz" and he's always been pretty outspoken about his environmental concerns.
He tweeted the following:
Protect polar bears and other live things from this outrageous bullsh*t!
The bill will also keep EPA in check so they won't be able to interfere with the poaching.
Now, Maher and the Humane Society are teaming up to urge citizens to contact their senators to make sure this bill doesn't make it to the president.
This bill needs to go down pronto! There are plenty of other pieces of legislation that are waaay more important!
