Each year in Virginia, countless coyotes, foxes, bobcats and other wildlife suffer and die in cruel killing contests, where event organizers offer prizes to the contestants who kill the most or largest animals. 

Incentivizing the killing of native wildlife is not only cruel and unsporting  it’s ecologically harmful. These killing contests disregard the important roles of their targets, like the coyotes and foxes who keep rodent populations in check. Such blood sport also puts animals that aren’t targeted, like family dogs, at risk of being shot or caught in painful traps.

Speak up for the state's wildlife: Tell the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources Board to end wildlife-killing contests.
