New Mexico coyote hunting contest sparks protests

The terms of the competition are simple: Hunters in New Mexico have two days this weekend to shoot and kill as many coyotes as they can, and the winners get their choice of a free shotgun or a pair of semi-automatic rifles.

But the planned two-day coyote hunting contest has sparked an online petition that has generated tens of thousands of signatures worldwide. The FBI is investigating a death threat to the gun shop owner who is sponsoring the hunt. And one protester has even vowed to dress like a coyote to trick hunters into accidentally killing a human.

But none of these episodes will likely stop the owner of Gunhawk Firearms from holding the scheduled two-day coyote hunting race this weekend, despite the international attention the idea has garnered.

    Liberals are giving d.e.a.t.h t.h.r.e.a.t.s over a coyote hunt?

    Let’s live trap a dozen and let them go in the SPCA’s main office . . .. or maybe the DNC. Bet they change their tune quick after that!

    Any so called international protests over this are more than likely from the liberals who have disamed their civilian population and turned them toslaves . They have no business interfering with what goes on in new mexico or any other state. Past time to tell the un to leave our soil and implode that stinking tower of babble called the UN

      Just through the UN off US shores and withdraw from the UN. NO more funding of that communist organization. They are a bunch of FREE LOADERS!!! Take OUR land back and put it to better use (even a dump would be better use).

    I guess these liberals think that since they have overrun our nation with welfare rats, and Mexican freeloaders, what’s the problem with saving and protecting other vermin!

    Hmmm I wonder what that protester would look like skinned out and hanging on the barn door? I bet it is one of those PETA pukes. 🙂

      Just like coyotes – – – – they eat their own puke, don’t they?
