Resistbot Petition: Please support the Prohibit Wildlife Killing Contests Act!

An open letter to the U.S. House of Representatives

Please support the Prohibit Wildlife Killing Contests Act!

247 so far! Help us get to 250 signers!

I am emailing today to ask you to cosponsor HR 7398, the Prohibit Wildlife Killing Contests Act of 2022. This legislation would require federal land-management agencies to issue regulations within one year to prohibit organizing, sponsoring, conducting or participating in wildlife-killing contests on more than 500 million acres of public lands. Thousands of foxes, coyotes, bobcats, and even sometimes wolves are killed every year in wildlife killing contests held around the country. Even family pets are not safe. More than 20 dogs have been killed across the United States and Canada because they were mistaken for coyotes. These unsporting events are not in keeping with "fair chase" hunting principles and serve no conservation purpose. Eight states have already outlawed these contests within their borders, including Arizona, California, Colorado, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Vermont and Washington. Now it's time to ban these horrific events on federal public lands across the country. I'm counting on you to support the Prohibit Wildlife Killing Contests Act and help save countless animals from needless pain and death and protect our public lands for all of our enjoyment and appreciation–not just those entitled few who participate in these contests.​ Thanks.
