The Governor of NC: STOP THE KILLING OF COYOTES in North Carolina

      High Point, NC

The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission has sanctioned the UNLIMITED night hunting of coyotes in North Carolina.  So while a hungry coyote is vulnerable and seeking its next meal, a hunter is allowed to take advantage, to use lights and other mechanisms to kill them.  For food?  No, for sport. 

Called "varmints" by hunters, these amazing creatures are part of the natural ecosystem of wildlife and provide a natural balance of predator and prey in our forests. Almost driven to extinction, human encroachment is the coyotes biggest threat.  And while, yes, some livestock may be sacrificed, it is humans invading their territory which has created this threat.  Respect for these creatures may indeed require some sacrifice, but not the annihilation of their species.

Night hunting creates an absolute and distinct DISADVANTAGE for the coyote.  Please sign this petition to stop the night hunting of coyotes in North Carolina. 

The Red Wolf Coalation has been monitoring the changes to these hunting rules and carries the following information on their website:

The NCWRC recently approved permanent rule changes that will allow unlimited night hunting of coyotes in all North Carolina counties. Following the prescribed public comment period, the state's Rules Review Commission reviewed the permanent rule changes and approved them. As per required procedure, the RWC and members of the public then filed more than ten letters of objection with the RRC. These filings, by law, were supposed to delay the implementation of the permanent rule change until the next North Carolina legislative session, which is scheduled for January 2013.

      Learn to live with coyotes. I am sure there is always a better way than killing. How brutal and uncivilized.
