Idaho Wants to Make Wildlife Killing Contests an Annual Event

Last year a hunters’ rights group in Idaho sparked outrage when it decided to hold the first predator killing contest targeting coyotes and wolves in decades, but it appears the group learned nothing after turning the town of Salmon into a battleground and is back seeking a permit to hold the event annually over the next several years.

The contest last year, sponsored by Idaho for Wildlife, awarded trophies and prize money for killing the largest wolf and most coyotes, among other things, and offered special prizes for a youth category for children between the ages of 10 and 14.

More offensive is that the contest kicked off on the 40th anniversary of the Endangered Species Act and marked the first time wolves were targeted in a predator derby since their reintroduction. While the group tried to claim it was just good…

  7. I boycotted Idaho and Wisconsin two years ago…..These people find pleasure in the suffering of these majestic creatures and it makes me sick inside…..This is going to come down to an all out war before it’s over…..and, maybe it is time for that……I personally hate violence, however, these amazing animals are part of our ecosystem just as all the other wildlife that God created and maybe it’s time for an all out war against the anti wolf people, the trophy hunters, and the wildlife killers!! We are in the largest mass extinction in history and it is due to mankind’s greed. Extinction is a normal part of life but, not this mass extinction. What are they going to hunt when all the wildlife is extinct???? The people who are killing our wolves, coyotes, and “trophy hunting”…..they are horrible, blood thirsty people who have no respect for life…..We need the power of numbers to fight them…..together we can change the world. The anti wolf, wildlife killing, trophy hunting bunch of punks are intimidating to some people….they have the NRA backing their blood thirsty butts and that tends to frighten a lot of people…..I feel that this is where a huge problem lies….many people are afraid to speak up and be heard for fear of retaliation…

  9. I always ask the grocer where the potatoes came from. If the answer is Idaho…back they go. I urge any and all to cancel any vacations that might include Idaho, which includes having to pass through this state subsequently dropping them any business. They must be shut off from the rest of the world for they are just about, if not the worst state in the USA notorious for slaughtering, torturing, butchering wolves…mainly for “sport”!

  11. People that do this are nothing ,ore than lowlife thrill seekers. They feel it makes them “brave” or “courageous” to gun down a defenseless animal and they call this “sport”. It’s beyond a sick, perverted joke but they’re too far gone to realize it. If any of them had even half a brain they could see how wrong this is.

  13. Wildlife have enough troubles to deal with on a day to day basis without humans adding to them. Because some people are too damn stupid or uncomfortable to understand something because it goes against what their dear family taught them, that they feel they don’t have to learn?
