Success: City Halts Plans to Kill Coyotes

Target: Tom Beck, Mayor of Arcadia, California

Goal: Thank the city for reversing its decision to slaughter coyotes.

Recently, the Arcadia City Council had plans to hire a contractor and kill coyotes as a means of population control. Thankfully, the decision was reversed and the city will no longer senselessly slaughter these innocent animals.

The initial plan was to trap and kill the coyotes. Trapping is an extremely stressful situation for animals, and it is not uncommon for animals to chew limbs off in order to escape these traps. Trapping also leads to injury and death of non-targeted wildlife including endangered species. Not only is this whole process cruel, but it is not even an effective means of population control.

Concerned citizens of Arcadia, animal rights activists and petitions like this one on ForceChange led to the city’s decision to cancel this cull. Sign this petition and thank Arcadia, California for reversing its decision to kill these innocent animals.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mayor Beck,

Recently, Arcadia voted to reverse its decision to trap and kill coyotes as a means of population control. This is great news for the innocent animals sharing the city with you.

Trapping is an incredibly cruel and stressful situation for wild animals. Trapping also leads to injury and death of non-targeted wildlife including endangered species. It is not uncommon for animals to chew off limbs in order to escape the traps. In addition, trapping and killing is not an effective way to control animal populations. Instead it just leads to unnecessary deaths and is a waste of time and money.

Thank you for deciding to reverse your initial decision to kill coyotes and for listening to the people of your city.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Thank you Arcadia. Finally, a city will some sense! Hopefully, you will set the standard.

    • I think this is wonderful ! Everyday one reads of states , countries allowing animals to be killed. Just recently the President lifted the band on ivory and guess what that means KILLING OF ELEPHANTS ! THEN THERE IS THE OK OF KILLING ANIMALS IN THEIR DENS …the list of horrific acts towards animals and laws are vile and seem to be getting worse daily so when I read this I was overjoyed…. I pray that other places will find the moral courage to do the same.

      • YES AND ALL WISCONSIN PEOPLE DO NOT VOTE FOR RON JOHNSON!!!! HE SUPPORTED THE KILLING OF ANIMALS IN THIER DENS WHILE HIBERNATING!!! GET RON JOHNSON OUT OF OFFICE!!!! THANKS!

    Thank you for doing the right thing!

  7. More enlightenment by the State of California! I’ve also read (US Humane Society magazine) that killing coyotes somehow encourages them to breed more.

  8. Thank you for not allowing coyotes to be killed. People have to learn to live with wildlife, not kill them.
