Arizona - HB2104

RELATING TO TRANSACTIONS INVOLVING IVORY OR RHINOCEROS HORN

Introduced

January 12, 2017

Description

Another very broad ban that goes way beyond elephants in defining ivory.It pays lipservice to the Rule Change from USFWS in 2016 without acknowledging that the Rule Change recognized legitimate intrastate trade as not posing any threat to elephant populations or other illicit activities.

Our Position

Oppose

Commentary

This is another Humane Socieity of the US Ivory Ban clone that makes no attempt to link ivory trade within the state of Arizona to elephant poaching, but criminalizes trade of otherwise legal ivory from many different species of animals.
