AOL News currently, Friday January 12, posts an Associated Press story by Matthew Brown, headed, “Coyote Killing Contest Prompts Howls.”

AOL includes a poll where you can vote for or against the Montana contest. As I send this out votes are equally divided, so please take a moment to post yours. The poll, article, and also an upsetting photo display are at

The article includes a quote by coyote hunter Jerrid Geving, “I don’t know why God put them on this Earth. If He put them on this world to give us sport for hunting, maybe.”

The article shares the thinking behind the hunt organizers:

“In Baker, a town of about 1,700 tucked against the North Dakota border, supporters of this weekend’s contest say it will deliver a much-needed jolt to the area’s economy, drawing some 180 participants from as far away as Chicago and Seattle. They also say fewer coyotes means fewer livestock killings.”

You can post comments here.

My thanks to Deedee for making sure we saw the AOL story and poll.

Yours and the animals’,
