This is a real look at what is happening to our wildlife in Wisconsin. A very small percentage of hunters engage in this practice, yet they have huge political influence in Wisconsin. We appreciate Silent Sports Magazine for doing such a deep dive into this issue, are are encouraging everyone to share this article with your state legislators, urging them to get behind ending this barbaric practice once and for all.
Last night, the Dane County Board of Supervisors, in a unanimous vote, passed Resolution 502, urging the Wisconsin Legislature to develop and support changes to statutes to ban any and all future wildlife killing contests.
Each year hundreds of coyotes are killed in “competitions” throughout Wisconsin, but these contests send a message that killing is fun, wild animals are disposable, and life is cheap.
