Shut Down Barbaric Coyote-Killing Contest

Target: Andrew Cuomo, Governor of New York

Goal: Stop inhumane slaughter of coyotes by cancelling coyote-killing contest.

Over 100 coyotes were slaughtered during a New York killing contest, in which a total of $10,000 was handed out in cash prizes for meeting certain requirements such as “heaviest kill.” The bodies were not even taken as trophies, simply mutilated and tossed into dumpsters. Among these targets were many heavily pregnant females and their unborn young.

This is beyond barbaric, perhaps even worse than trophy hunting if such a thing were possible. These living creatures are tracked, chased down, and robbed of their lives in the most gruesome fashions before their corpses are simply disposed of. The sole motivator for these heartless killers is cold hard cash, a prize to see who can hurt the most animals or catch the biggest target. Worse, this contest is one of the largest in New York. Such actions are not just seen as acceptable, but normal.

This disgusting contest needs to be shut down immediately. Coyotes are wonderful living creatures who deserve better than such gruesome fates. Sign this petition to demand New York stop holding these hunts.


Dear Governor Cuomo,

Over 100 coyotes lost their lives in brutal fashion recently, during a contest in which winners took home big cash prizes for slaughtering living creatures. Among these casualties were many pregnant females, who along with the rest of the victims were mutilated and thrown in dumpsters once the contest was over.

You must stop holding this contest. There is simply no excuse for slaughtering innocent animals and tossing their corpses aside like useless trash for the sake of pure monetary gain, and there is even less excuse for the state’s enabling of such disgusting behavior. Coyotes are beautiful living creatures who deserve better. Cancel all future coyote hunts and stop the slaughter of these animals immediately.
