As some of you may know, there is a terrible derby being planned.
A “hunters’ rights” organization wants to hold a commercial predator killing contest on national forest and private lands. We need the US Forest Service (USFS) to stop this barbarity.
This derby originally was planned to be held on 3 million acres of public lands. However, due to overwhelming public outcry, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) made the wise decision to withdraw its permission to allow this organization to hunt wolves and coyotes.
Contests like this completely ignore the fact that predators such as wolves and coyotes are essential to maintaining healthy ecosystems. National forest lands are supposed to be here for the protection of all species, and for the enjoyment of people. Killing competitions ruin all of that.
Please take action TODAY, and help us stop this event from taking place on national forest lands!
