Thank you for sending messages to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission to urge them to ban wildlife killing contests statewide. They heard you! This senseless killing will stop in part to you for taking the time to speak up for the voiceless.
You did good!
This will stop!
In wildlife killing contests, participants compete to kill foxes, coyotes, bobcats, and other ecologically vital species for cash and prizes. Hundreds of animals may be killed at a single event and countless others may be injured. Their lifeless bodies are often dumped like trash, once the game is over.
Wildlife killing contests are cruel and undermine responsible sportsmanship. These contests are grossly out of step with the principle of fair chase, science-based wildlife management, and Oregon’s conservation-centered values.
Eight states, including five in the west—Washington, California, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona—as well as Maryland, Vermont, and Massachusetts have banned wildlife killing contests. It's time for Oregon to do the same.
