Join Guardians in the fight to ban wildlife killing contests in Oregon

Ask your Oregon state representative for a total ban of the senseless blood sport

Dear Guardian,

The bill to ban coyote killing contests in Oregon has moved from committee and will get a floor vote in the House of Representatives! Guardians needs your voice to get this bill from the Oregon House to the Senate. Urge your state representative to step up and end this cruelty by voting yes on HB-2728, a total ban on coyote killing contests in the Beaver State.

Completely devoid of ethics, wildlife killing contests are organized events in which participants compete for prizes by attempting to kill the most animals over a certain time period. It’s a disgusting practice in which the winners are rewarded for piling up the most or biggest animals or even killing the most different kinds of species. This rule would only ban contests for coyotes specifically and would not change general hunting laws.

Killing contests aren’t sport. They’re gratuitous violence.

They also send the message that animals, like coyotes, are disposable, killing them only for fun is OK and life is cheap. These wildlife killing contests disrupt natural processes and may also put threatened or endangered species in peril. Clearly, they have no place in 21st century humane, science-based wildlife management.

The good news is that seven states—Washington, Arizona, New Mexico, California, Vermont, Massachusetts, and Colorado—have already banned or severely restricted coyote killing contests. Now we have an opportunity to end these killing competitions in Oregon.

If you are an Oregon resident, take action to help us end the war on wildlife and score a win against brutality and cruelty.

For the Wild,

Samantha Bruegger, Wildlife Coexistence Campaigner
