Stop Senselessly Killing Wildlife for Cash Prizes

Target: Doug Donaldson, Minster of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations & Rural Development, British Columbia, Canada

Goal: End unethical wildlife-killing competitions.

Animals are slaughtered in disgusting competitions that incite the indiscriminate killing of wildlife. These contests concentrate on nature’s predators, specifically wolves, cougars, coyotes and raccoons. Contestants receive points for each type of animal they kill and they compete for a cash prize.

“Wolf whacking” contests are detrimental to the ecosystem and they teach contempt for the animal themselves and their species as a whole. These beautiful animals are important as individuals and they play an essential role in the environment.

Wildlife-killing contests do nothing to help the balance or protect nature as supporters claim. Research has shown that killing predators does not protect the ungulate population, including deer, elk and caribou. Instead of removing natural predators, efforts should be made to safeguard the natural habitats of these prey animals.

Many states across the USA have already passed laws outlawing this disgusting massacre. The province of British Columbia has received immense pressure to end these senseless killings, yet the competitions are still allowed.

Sign the petition and add your voice to make the wildlife-killing contests illegal.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Honourable Donaldson,

I strongly encourage you to ban the horrendous mass slaughter of wildlife that takes place each year in wildlife-killing contests. Many organizations and individuals across the country have expressed their disgust with these shameful competitions that are already prohibited by many other local governments. It is disgusting that hunters who participate are financially rewarded for the variety and quantity of animals they kill.

These competitions incite the indiscriminate killing of predators such as coyotes, wolves, cougars and raccoons. Not only are they individual beings, but these wild carnivores play an important role in the ecosystem as a whole, and systematically killing them off has shown no benefit to the ungulate population.

There are currently three of these appalling contests in BC, hosted by Chilcotin Guns, West Kootenay Outdoorsmen Club, and the Creston Valley Rod and Gun Club. It is appalling that these organizations are allowed to offer bounties and prizes for such a horrific deed.

I urge you to pass laws and do whatever is necessary to stop wildlife-killing contests from occurring.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Dear Honourable Donaldson,

    What a shame that the Canadian authorities allow such savagery and that organizations also lend themselves to reward those cowards in the XXI century – there is no doubt that with all the atrocities that are happening lately, man is precipitating the destruction of the planet more and more, which will consequently result in the end of the world

    Braves only kill in self-defense, not treachery.

    Why people don’t leave the animals alone, they too were created by God to populate the earth – and instead of cowardly hunting them down, go catch thieves, murderers and undesirable people.
