ARCADIA, Calif. – In the wake of the City of Arcadia’s City Council’s unanimous vote (5-0) on February 7 to trap and kill coyotes, Project Coyote denounced the decision that reverses the city’s long-term approach to coexisting with coyotes without indiscriminate killing.
Most people are shocked to learn that the practice of indiscriminately killing wildlife as part of a tournament for prizes and “recreational fun” is common and legal right here in the Land of Enchantment.
A bipartisan pair of state lawmakers have teamed up again to introduce legislation to ban coyote killing contests in New Mexico.
Your voice is needed to compel the California Fish and Game Commission (Commission) to comply with state law.
A trio of wildlife bills proposed this legislative session that would cost the state – and thus taxpayers – nothing in cash while earning them the moral high ground when it comes to respecting New Mexico’s wildlife and ecosystems, which belong to those same taxpayers.
