The picture featured is Brian Brown - Hunting Organizer. he asks that if we have questions to please call him & text him #607-656-4425 He likes to post pictures of himself with dead animals http://bit.ly/2sfnt8H - Message him & ask him to cancel his hunting contest. 

Hancock Fire Department canceled their coyote hunt, now the Whitney Point Coon Hunters Club picked up their dates. January 17th &18th & 19th. They are mocking animal rights & claim they won't be shut down! They are bragging & being disrespectful about killing coyotes & fox for their contest. Killing just to kill, for trophies, money, prizes & entertainment. 

Contest Organizer Brian Brown has been quoted saying: “And we won’t be shut down,” said Brian Brown, of Greene, a spokesman for the Coon Hunter’s group. “All the antis are dancing around, throwing a party, thinking they won.” please let him know that trophy hunting is cruel & urge him to cancel this vile killing event.

They are not doing this for conservation. They are doing this for recreation in spite of killing defenseless animals & laughing about it. They pose in pictures with the bodies of the dead animals they murdered, like it is just a mere disposable meaningless "thing" & was not a living breathing life that was taken. No respect for another living being. Cruel & Unethical!

These killing contests disrupt ecological function and health, degrade the value of individual animals, teach disrespect for wildlife, and inflict and promote cruelty to animals. We need to call for responsible, humane, and ecologically sound wildlife management practices, focused on coexistence and science-based non-lethal methods of conflict resolution. Most sportsmen and sportswomen oppose wildlife killing contests. Countless animals are injured or orphaned during these events. The use of lures and distress calls—devices that mimic the sounds of prey or even the cries of young animals in distress—to attract target animals into shooting range for an easy kill removes any notion of the fundamental hunting ethic of “fair chase.”

Conservation is the act of conserving; prevention of injury, decay, waste, or loss; preservation: conservation of wildlife; conservation of human rights. official supervision of rivers, forests, and other natural resources in order to preserve and protect them. 
 
Conservationists is a person who advocates or acts for the protection and preservation of the
environment and wildlife.
 
Biologists call fission-fusion, when coyotes come under pressure from hunters, their packs split up into lone animals & pairs, they start producing much larger litters, and they migrate into new areas.

Thank you! We need them all to hear all of us. Share - Share - Share. Every single action helps. 5 states have made this wildlife killing contests illegal, New York is next in-line.

“North American men do not hunt out of necessity; they typically do not hunt to protect people or animals, nor to keep themselves or their families from going hungry. Rather, they pursue hunting for its own sake, as a sport."
