ANiMAL PETiTiONS CORNER by Alicia of WoodsEdge

Presented by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Help Stop Another Coyote Killing Contest

Project Coyote and other animal advocates have taken up the fight against another despicable coyote killing contest that's scheduled to take place this January 18-19 in Crane, Oregon.  These types of contests have no place in society and are an offensive, indefensible and reckless waste of life that are about nothing more than killing for fun and are only made worse by the fact that children are encouraged to participate. These types of contests also completely ignore the vital role that coyotes, and other predators, play in healthy ecosystems. 

Please speak up for Oregon's coyotes and send a letter to state officials urging them to cancel this contest. 


2. Stop Idaho's Wolf-Killing Bounty Hunter

Since wolves lost protection in Idaho, hundreds have been killed and more lives are on the line with the state's decision to send a bounty hunter out to kill two entire wolf packs. Not only has Idaho shown it's callousness towards predators with a killing contest of its own last month, but has also shown that it's not capable of managing wolves fairly at the expense of taxpayers who want the bloodshed to stop. 

Please send a letter to the U.S. Forest Service and Idaho's Department of Fish and Game telling them to call off their hired assassin. 


3. Help Protect Washington's Wolves from Wildlife Services

The agency responsible for killing an estimated 3 million animals every year has its sights set on Washington's wolves. Despite non-lethal alternatives to dealing with wolf conflicts, Wildlife Services intends to go after wolves in the state at the behest of ranchers as it faces tougher public scrutiny and is investigated by the USDA's Inspector General for animal cruelty and misconduct. 

Please send a letter to the USDA asking it to keep Wildlife Services away from Washington's wolves.

  1. My only hope is that the coyote killers in Oregon all dress in camouflage, as we know they will, and shoot each other. That photo I'd like to see... hunters carcasses thrown into the back of a truck!
