Baiting animals for easy hunting banned in Nebraska
Lincoln Journal Star
What American dentist Walter Palmer did — using bait to lure Cecil the lion out of the African conservation park — is as illegal in Nebraska as it is in Zimbabwe. Nebraska has banned the baiting of hunting areas for big game animals for around a decade.
