Everyaction,

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

Encouraging the killing of the state's native wildlife is cruel and unsporting, as well as ecologically harmful. The contests ignore the important roles predators like foxes and coyotes play in their wild communities — keeping rodent populations in check, for instance. Such blood sports also put other animals, like family dogs, at risk of being shot or trapped.

Please — speak up for Maryland's wildlife. Tell your state senator and delegate to end wildlife-killing contests.
