Miss NH Fur Coat Protest in April 2019
Modern Day Torture Device used to trap NH’s important predators who are needed in the ecosystem to control Lyme disease for one reason. Many other animals, including non-targets like our pets and endangered/threatened species such as American bald eagles and the New England cottontail rabbit, are also cruelly trapped.
NH Animal Rights League’s January 2019 NHARL Newsletter
Saving the Wild
The NH Animal Rights League provides free signs to anyone who wants to post their property against hunting. It is now the time of year to post. Hunting seasons begin in September. See chart below.
General Hunting Season Dates
Following are general dates for hunting season in New Hampshire. A complete summary of season dates and bag limits is provided in the NH Hunting and Trapping Digest, published each year in August by the NH Fish and Game Department.
Black bear hunting begins September 1 and they can be hunted by bait and hounding. While baiting on your property requires your permission, hunting with dogs is not. Hounders are allowed to chase, tree, and shoot on your property and there is nothing you can do about that unless you post. Females are killed also, sometimes they are still lactating.

Saving Beaver Ponds and Beavers Matching Grant Program
NHARL gave a $400 matching grant for beaver protection at Sherwood Glen Condominiums in Raymond, NH. Several years ago, Art Wolinsky and his condo installed flow pipes and fencing with their own money. They recently determined some upkeep was needed—namely, the installation of a culvert protection cage—on this successful project, and so applied for help via this grant, which was approved. NHARL supports and promotes humane and environmentally friendly solutions in beaver management as an alternative to the lethal methods of trapping and killing beavers, offering small matching grants up to $500 towards the installation of these alternative methods (e.g. beaver pipe systems, fencing around trees).
You can watch a TIMELAPSE VIDEO of the April 23, 2018 installation of this outgoing culvert fence by Mike Callahan
