Wildlife Killing Contests are competitions where the goal is to kill as many predator species as possible, within a set time frame, in order to win money and prizes. Wolves, pumas, bobcats, foxes, and coyotes are the most targeted animals, with cash pay-outs for heaviest and most killed. Rapidly growing in popularity, a single contest can result in approximately over 1000 animal deaths, in one small region, in a single night. With no fair chase principals applied, most animals are lured by distress calls and a promise of food. Defying hunting ethics and science, these contests are currently still legal on private and our public lands in over 40 states.
