Wildlife killing contests are held in nearly every state across the country. In these gruesome competitions, participants kill species like coyotes, foxes, bobcats for fun and prizes.
Participants engaging in wildlife killing contests often use cruel or unsporting methods such as trapping, hounding and predator calling, which lures curious animals with the sound of young or prey in distress.
These contests are touted as an entertaining means of population control, but they are nothing more than a blood sport. They flout the principles of science-based wildlife management and are contrary to the idea of fair-chase hunting.
Take Action: Please submit a letter to your state wildlife management agency urging them to adopt a policy against wildlife killing contests. We can then deliver these letters to your local agency.
