San Francisco considers banning butterfly releases

Posted: Dec 05, 2013 8:32 AM CST

San Francisco has made headlines for the numerous things it has banned recently, from toys in fast-food meals to cats being de-clawed.

Now, the city is setting its sights on another common practice: the release of butterflies at weddings and other special events.

The San Francisco Commission on the Environment, which supports a ban on the release of commercially bred butterflies, unanimously approved a resolution Tuesday night that orders the Department of the Environment to work with conservationists and local lawmakers before pursing formal legislative action.

The resolution states the commission supports a ban because the practice of releasing the insects at weddings and other celebrations can negatively impact the indigenous population and hamper conservation efforts.

“Many San Franciscans believe that butterflies are animals to be respected and valued as part of the city’s natural heritage and should not be used as decorations or for entertainment,” the resolution states.

The president of the North American Butterfly Association, who sent a letter to the commission in support of the proposal, told FoxNews the association backs the proposal because “there is absolutely no reason” butterflies should be sold for use at events.

“(They are) taking these living organisms and treating them as nothing but party favors,” Jeffrey Glassberg said.

Thing is, that could run into violation of religious practices. Especially among some of the Native American Tribes.
As well as for those who follow some of the ways of the Native Americans.
