Some Bills Seeking to Increase Animal Protections in Nebraska

Posted: Updated:

Some state lawmakers are pushing bills in this session aimed at protecting various animals.

House pets, mountain lions and black–tailed prairie dogs have found a powerful advocate in Nebraska state Sen. Ernie Chambers.

Chambers introduced legislation to protect dogs from neglectful owners, and the prairie dogs from neighboring landowners.

He also has chosen a mountain–lion hunting ban as his priority bill for the session.

The self–titled "Defender of the Downtrodden'' says he's trying to undo many of the bills that were approved in the legislature during the four years after term limits forced him from office.
