End NY’s Cruel Coyote-killing Contests

Each year thousands of animals, including coyotes, die in cruel wildlife killing competitions held in New York, where contestants compete in shooting the most or biggest animals for cash prizes.

Incentivizing the killing of New York’s wildlife is both cruel and scientifically unsound as a management tool. The best available science shows coexisting with predator animals – rather than killing them – is the most effective management strategy, yet many states often do little to halt barbaric killing contests.

Wildlife killing contests have no place in the 21st century, nor do they have a place in New York.

Tell your state legislators to support new legislation that would ban wildlife-killing contests* in New York (A.B. 722 / S.B. 7542).
