RE: Stop the Harney County Coyote Classic

Subject: Stop the Harney County Coyote Classic
Date: Mon, 12 Jan 2015 16:12:16 -0800

Dear ODFW and Harney County Chamber of Commerce Director:

As an Attorney Executive Member of the Animal Law Section of the Oregon State Bar and Co-Chairman of the Animal Welfare Subcommittee, I implore you to halt the Harney County Coyote Classic as an immoral example of senseless violence and brutality in the form of family recreation, which only serves to desensitize humans to inhumane cruelty.

Scientific research does not support slaughtering coyotes as it only serves to disrupt the ecosystems and social structures of the packs, encouraging more breeding and litters, which increases livestock predation.

Killing contests are morally wrong, as it promotes violence in the name of family fun.

We hope you reconsider this strategy to raise money in your county.

Thank you for your consideration of the above.

Lisa A. Frost
