Fight for a federal ban on killing contests
Wildlife killing contests are unsporting events in which people attempt to kill the largest, the most or even the smallest animals for cash and prizes. Participants use high-tech calling devices that mimic the sounds of prey, or even coyote or fox young in distress, to lure the animals in for an easy kill. After the prizes are awarded, the bodies of the animals are often dumped like trash.
We must re-double our efforts to stop these inhumane spectacles and pass a ban on killing contests on federal lands. No animal should be killed for prizes or bragging rights.
Please make a brief, polite phone call to your U.S. Representative. You can find their contact information here. You can say: "Please support a ban on wildlife killing contests on federal lands. These contests are cruel, unsporting and harmful to ecosystems, and have no place on taxpayer-funded public lands."
After making your call, please send a follow-up message.
