It's time to end this barbaric practice.

Everyaction,

Each year in Oregon hundreds of coyotes suffer and die in cruel killing contests, where event organizers offer prizes like cash or weapons to hunters who kill the most or the largest animals.

It's sickening, and we have to stop it.

Encouraging the killing of the state's native wildlife by giving out prizes is not only cruel and unsporting, it's ecologically harmful. These killing contests disregard the many important roles carnivores play, such as keeping rodents in check. Such blood sport also puts non-target animals like endangered wolves at risk of being shot or trapped.

Speak up for Oregon's wildlife and tell your state reps to support new legislation that would at last ban these coyote-killing contests.
