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

Here is the letter to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.  Scott Beckstead attended the meeting on behalf of the Humane Society of the US.  Due to public outcry, the extra tags will not be issued.  This was a win for animal advocates.  Now the plan is to move the hunt to the fall instead of the spring, but this will be another battle for the future.  Read the rest of this entry »
