Vermont Legislature Passes Ban on Sale of Animal Parts

Paws Up! To the Vermont House and Senate for passing H.99 which will ban the trade of animal parts.

Experts estimate that about 20,000 elephants are killed for their ivory tusks each year.

September 29, 2020

The Vermont legislature passed H.99 last week and it is now waiting for review by Governor Phil Scott.

If signed, Vermont would join eleven other states that ban the buying and selling of animal parts such as elephant tusks, pangolin scales, and many other animal parts that poachers often sell for large sums of money. As more states shut their doors to the nefarious trading of animal parts, poachers will no longer be able to support and supply this cruel market.

The bill would prohibit the purchase, sale, or intent to sell any animal part from any species of the following animals: cheetah, elephant, giraffe, hippopotamus, jaguar, leopard, lion, mammoth, mastodon, pangolin, ray, rhinoceros, sea turtle, shark, tiger, or whale.

Take Action: Contact Vermont Governor Phil Scott and implore to him the importance of signing H.99 into law to protect wild animals from future abuse, death, and dismemberment for a person’s financial gain!
