The carnage of coyote-killing contests

“We are all interconnected,” said Norm Cavanaugh, a member of the Western Band of the Shoshone Tribe in Nevada and a hunter. “When elders pray, they pray for all our relations as the deer, the coyote, all living beings on mother earth because we are all interconnected. So in that sense the coyote is considered a relation of the native people… No animals are killed just for sport, the elders said.”

“What is driving me is (that) the unnecessary killing shows disrespect for the animal,” said Don Molde. “The wildlife commission is stacked in favor of hunters although only about 4% of Nevadans hunt. The commission has seven hunters amongst its nine members.”

Nevada’s Predator Killing Program subject of new lawsuit

A lawsuit filed June 1, 2018 takes aim (literally) at a 15-year long, multi-million dollar program that has led to the unnecessary deaths of thousands of coyotes and ravens and dozens of mountain lions under the guise of predator management.

Originally touted as a way to “bring back Nevada’s deer herds” when passed by the Nevada Legislature in 2001, it has utterly failed to live up to its prediction.  Nevada mule deer numbers have been relatively flat for 15 years with little fluctuation.

Project 36

Project 36: Nevada has about 1400 mountain lions widely distributed across the state. The animal is classified as a big game species. Hunters pay guides several thousand dollars to help them pursue and kill it as a trophy. Wildlife Services, the “government trappers” kill a couple dozen a year in valiant defense of the livestock industry and for more dubious reasons.  Read More Here!



Judge Says We Can Sue The Wildlife Commission

On November 3, 2016, District Lynne Simons issued a decision which affirmed our right to sue the Nevada Board of Wildlife Commissioners over trapping excesses.  This is a win for wildlife.  It confirms that ordinary citizens who simply enjoy wildlife for its intrinsic values (without killing anything) have a right to challenge management decisions made by those in charge.  There is no need to “pay to play” with respect to these issues.  The State will have to decide whether to appeal this decision.  Otherwise, it’s on to a settlement or a trial.

The Secret Life of Mountain Lions

The Secret Life of Mountain Lions provides a rare glimpse into the family and social bonds of mountain lions. It affirms their rightful place in nature and the importance of protecting them for generations to come. Narrated by Chris Morgan (PBS, BBC, National Geographic), this video contains extraordinary footage captured with motion-triggered cameras from Panthera’s Teton Cougar Project.

Steel-jaw traps can inflict serious injuries to wildlife

A bald eagle, America’s national bird, is caught in a steel-jaw trap along a hiking trail near Juneau, Alaska, in December 2014. It later was euthanized.
“Even lab rats have to be treated more humanely than animals that are subject to trapping in many of the states,” said  Vickers, a vet with the UCDavis Wildlife Health Center. Read Tom Knudson’s article here
