According to news reports, a sporting goods store in Belleville, Ontario, Canada, is hosting a coyote-killing contest throughout the month of February. Allegedly, the company plans to award prizes in 11 categories, including for the largest and smallest coyotes killed—meaning that hunters are reportedly being encouraged to kill coyote pups! This contest also puts Algonquin wolves, a threatened species similar in appearance to coyotes, at risk of being killed! Unbelievably, this contest is apparently being allowed to take place despite the rules laid out in Section 11 of the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act, 1997, which prohibits anyone from providing a prize or other incentive to kill wild animals. Coyotes and wolves desperately need your voice now!
Please use our form below to send a polite message to the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, urging it to enforce the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act by putting an immediate stop to this horrific bloodbath.
