Stop the Coyote Hunt in California
Gray wolf
Bookmark and Share


Each year coyotes are gunned down in a hunting contest to limit predation, despite the limited scientific basis. This year the hunt is planned for the very region where wolves dispersing into California from adjacent states are most likely roaming.

The annual hunt and contest takes place in Northern California, across a checkerboard of public and private lands. This is where the wolf known as OR-7, or Journey -- the first known wild wolf in California in more than 80 years -- spent much of his time last year. Other endangered wolves who aren't radio-collared could also be roaming this same area and be at real risk from the contest hunt.

Just last spring OR-7 was spotted in the company of three coyotes. And wolves are often mistaken for coyotes -- they have been killed by hunters in other states as a result.

Please use the form below to tell the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and the California Fish and Game Commission to stop the coyote hunt before it starts on Feb. 8.

Also, if you'll be in Sacramento, please attend the California Fish and Game Commission meeting on Feb. 6 to speak up against the coyote-killing contests.

This wolf is surely in danger if there are hunters out there who can't tell the difference between a coyote and a wolf, that's like mistaking an elk for a deer. Best thing would be to call off the hunt, once wolves get established they will take care of the coyotes and maybe there will be less of a perceived need for humans to hunt coyotes.

You are all welcome! Good eye Gloria--the petition does use a wolf picture because they are at risk from this hunt in addition to the coyotes. Stars sent where I could, unfortunately for many of you I get messages like this:
"You cannot currently send a star to Christeen because you have done so within the last week."
