One county, one state at a time: California’s Mendocino County will think again about killing off their wildlife without reason. When animal welfare groups and individual citizens form coalitions their voice will be heard.

As a result of that agreement, the coalition has agreed to dismiss its lawsuit.”You can read more here:
