(St. Paul) – Three wildlife killing contests will be hosted this weekend in Minnesota. These contests target coyotes and foxes.
West Metro Coyote Hunting Tournament (Watertown, Minnesota): Host- Hollywood Sports Complex: (952) 955-2424
Buffalo Ridge Coyote Hunting Tournament (Marshall, Minnesota): Host- Brau Brothers Brewing: (507) 929-2337
Minndak Coyote Tournament (Randolph, Minnesota): Host- Roscoe’s Roadhouse: (507) 263-5157
“Wildlife killing contests are cruel, ineffective, and do not reflect Minnesota’s tradition of sportsmanship and respect for the outdoors,” said Joe Wolf, board member of Howling For Wolves.
Hunts like this are unregulated – with no rules, and no limits.
“Killing contests are wrong for many reasons.
Howling For Wolves educates the public about the wild wolf to foster tolerance and to ensure the wolf’s long-term survival. Howling For Wolves opposes recreational wolf hunting and trapping and all wildlife snaring. We advocate for nonlethal prevention methods that reduce wolf-livestock conflicts and support current federal protections for the wolf.
