ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The Sierra Club Rio Grande Chapter has launched a radio campaign targeting New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez and the Game Commission’s decisions to allow trapping of cougars and increased bear-killing by trophy hunters.

The chapter says Martinez appointed every commissioner on the panel.

The chapter’s ads ask New Mexicans to urge Martinez to direct the Game Commission to reverse the cougar and bear votes.

Chapter officials say the ad will appear on radio stations in central, northern and southern New Mexico and will run in concert with online ads throughout the state.

They say commissioners voted Aug. 27 to allow cougar-trapping on private and state trust land, increase the bag limit on cougars to four from two in some units and increase the bear quotas by 26 percent.
