POLL: Should the wolf hunting contest in Idaho be stopped?

In what has to be the one of the most bloodthirsty post-Christmas festivities yet, Idaho’s announced a and coyote contest for all the family.

And it really does mean “all the family” – children as young as ten can enter the competition being held on the weekend of 28-29 December.

In this celebration of tastelessness and death, prizes will be awarded for such “achievements” as most female coyotes killed, biggest and so on.

Should the hunting contest in be stopped?

Both wolves and coyotes play essential roles in the ecosystem – they are not pests. Wolves actually need increased protection. Even if numbers did need to be reduced, which they don’t, shooting these beautiful animals should only ever be done by professionals.  Treating it as family entertainment is ridiculous.

We invite you to vote whether the hunting contest in be stopped. Please vote and also leave your comments at the bottom of this page.
