BACKGROUND | SOURCE KRQE
A repulsive killing contest or the right to reduce dangerous predators?
The controversial coyote killing contest has the village of Los Lunas divided.
Protestors and supporters lined main street Saturday, and police were even called out to keep the peace.
“It’s not about hunting! It’s about being cruel!” shouted one protestor.
About two dozen people held signs demanding the gun store cancel the protests. Signs read “Mass murder coyotes? Howl no!!” and “This is not a contest, it’s a massacre.”
The uproar is caused by a controversial coyote hunting contest held by Gunhawk Firearms. The shop is offering a reward for the hunter who bags the most coyotes in a weekend. It was an idea spurred by Calibers, an Albuquerque gun shop. They canceled their contest after severe backlash from customers and activists.
