This came to me as an urgent Press Release which I gladly have posted on my website: http://www.revaustinmiles.com and on the news wire. People, please put a stop to this march to cruelty contest.
Animals have the same feelings we do including pain, fear, anxiety, distress, grief and yes, even love. So these targeted animals will experience the same pain you would experience if you were the hunted in this barbaric “sport.” Below is the contact numbers for Howling for Wolves that protects animals.
PRESS RELEASE FROM HOWLING FOR WOLVES
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 18, 2019
CONTACT: Dr. Maureen Hackett, Howling For Wolves, 612.250.5915, or Leslie Rosedahl at 651.353.1818, email@example.com
(St. Paul) – Three wildlife killing contests will be hosted this weekend in Minnesota. These contests target coyotes and foxes.
The sponsors of this atrocity and their phone numbers are listed below. With courtesy, urge them to pull their sponsorship;
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; First, there is no place in a civil society for wildlife killing contests. These types of tournaments are disastrous to wildlife and the balance of ecosystems, and simply glorify violent behavior by encouraging killing simply for the sake of killing.
Second, organizers of these events often claim that they are helping to control predator populations. The fact is, this is not about controlling wildlife populations. This is about thrill-killing, a nonsensical, savage contest to see who can kill the most. Finally, we need the fox to control infectious diseases, including Lyme disease,” said Wolf.
The phone number of the sponsors of this horrendous killing party are shown above. Please contact them with courtesy and urge them to call off his dastardly deed which makes all of us look like savages
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. http://www.HowlingForWolves.org

EMM commentary: Every little outside feral cat we had has been eaten by coyotes, every rabbit, every skunk has been killed. I have no problem destroying coyotes who destroy people’s pets. They are a menace and a predator that needs to be eliminated. Wolves attack and kill ranch animals…there’s a limit to everything. I’m sorry but wolves have become a menace to ranchers and it’s all because of releasing them where they don’t belong.
