Stop the Coyote Killing Contest in Ontario!

Stop the Coyote Killing Contest in Ontario!

For years, Chesher’s Outdoor Store near Belleville, Ontario has hosted an annual animal coyote hunting contest, with cash prizes for hunters that kill the biggest coyotes.

It's illegal in Ontario to hunt for gain or pay a bounty. Yet provincial officials are ignoring this law, and still allow this illegal contest to go ahead.

Animal Justice, Coyote Watch, and the Fur-Bearers are are suing Ontario, and asking the courts to ensure the government respects the law.

Please join us in calling on Natural Resources Minister Greg Rickford to take action against illegal hunting contests in Ontario.
