Wildlife Killing Is No Contest
Throughout the nation, including on our public lands, some hunters slaughter wildlife in large numbers in contests to win cash or other prizes. These wildlife killing contests target coyotes, foxes, bobcats, and many other species. The hunters do not use any part of the carcasses but participate in these orgies of killing for the thrill of it. They wipe out native predators, leave behind massive volumes of lead ammunition to contaminate the land, and damage the reputations of state fish and wildlife agencies.
