Coyote killing contests in America are growing. As the growth and expansion of coyotes continues, filling an ecological niche left after the eradication of larger native predators in the country, like wolves and cougars, most states in the country allow legal hunting of coyotes year around with no season or bag limit.

Many farmers and landowners invite predator hunters to eliminate local predator populations, believing their lives are better without coyotes. But are they? What about the land? What about the ecological communities that depends on a healthy predator/prey relationship to keep in check rodents and other animals that can negatively affect humans and our American ecosystems?

The wanton waste of wildlife that coyote and other wildlife killing contests encourage is not in line with the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation or any ethical sportspersonís agenda, and it most certainly should not be in line with any stateís wildlife agency, committed to preventing the kind of wanton waste of wildlife common in coyote and other wildlife killing contests.

Donít get angry, get organized. Contact your stateís wildlife agency and let them know that you do not support the awarding of cash and prizes to those who kill the most of our public trust wildlife. Wildlife killing contests encourage unethical and cruel treatment of coyotes and other wildlife and should not be supported by any ethical hunter or sportsperson.
