KILLING GAMES: WILDLIFE IN THE CROSSHAIRS (TRAILER)
Watch Project Coyote’s new exposé about wildlife killing contests, which are events wherein contestants win prizes and awards for killing the most or largest of a given species.
Targeted animals include coyotes, foxes, wolves, bobcats, prairie dogs, crows and even rattlesnakes. Interviews with prominent social and ecological scientists, ranchers, hunters, public officials and Native Americans disprove the claims used to perpetuate these killing contests.
The film also highlights a successful model of grassroots campaigning that led to California prohibiting prizes and other inducements for killing coyotes, bobcats, foxes and other wildlife as part of a contest, derby or tournament.
