We’re challenging state-authorized and privately held coyote killing contests in Idaho and New Mexico through litigation and legislative advocacy. We intend to establish legal and policy precedents that we can apply in other states across the West. We likewise are working to de-fund the federal animal damage control agency (a.k.a. Wildlife Services) which aerial guns, traps, and poisons up to 90,000 coyotes annually. We recently won a major legal ruling, which will allow our lawsuit calling for a new updated nationwide environmental review of the program to proceed.
