End Barbaric Wildlife Killing Contests

Wildlife killing contests are barbaric blood sports that are completely legal on a large percentage of federal public lands in the American West. Participants who shoot the most animals, the biggest animals, and even the smallest or youngest animals are rewarded for their butchery. Arizona, California, Colorado, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Vermont, and Washington have banned killing contests and multiple other states are considering such bans. We need to act now to demand an end to killing contests on federal public lands across the United States as well.
