Most people are completely unaware of how coyote hunting with the use of dogs is done, let alone that it is legal in their state. Just because it is legal, doesn't mean that it is humane or right- it just means that not enough people know that it is done and how it is done. Please check out this entire educational site and the photos and the videos that give an accurate portrait of what the hunters are doing to our wildlife. In a twisted way, these hunters feel justified in torturing coyotes before they are killed. Deliberate wounding so that the coyotes cannot escape the wrath of the trained "kill dogs" is especially disturbing. This behavior is no different than that of the men who run Pitbull fighting operations, the victims are just different animals, innocent coyotes. Had Michael Vick been caught deliberately crippling his bait dogs so they could not escape he surely would be in jail for life- not getting out of jail soon. Had Vick allowed his kill dogs to chase his bait dogs to exhaustion by using relay teams of fresh dogs, he would have never seen the light of day outside a jail cell again. These hunters are just as bad- they just haven't been caught YET!
The "Good Old Boy Club" has tried to keep these nasty secrets of their sport quiet for years, but the truth is slowly coming out- and they are NOT happy about it! They are denying a lot, but the pictures and videos which they so proudly share with others tell the truth. They threaten anyone who dares threaten their killing sport that they are addicted to. They are addicted to torturing animals and the fact that right now killing coyotes in "any manner" is acceptable, legal and they will continue. We can stop these cowards though.
What can you do today? Contact your state wildlife department and legislators. Make copies of the photos and text on this site. Use the photos to educate them as to how the hunting laws in regards to the use of dogs are being abused. Pass the word around- educate your neighbors and friends. Contact your states Humane Society and tell them that you will not tolerate cruelty to domestic dogs - OR wild dogs. All are intelligent, living , breathing beings who have a right to a peaceful life. This is NO DIFFERENT than dog fighting!
Lets work together to stop the men who are abusing their "right" to kill animals.
