Albuquerque Journal and Las Cruces Sun-News Oppose Senseless Killing of Coyotes

In case you missed it. . . The two largest newspapers in New Mexico have agreed that coyote killing contests should be banned. In editorials this weekend, the Albuquerque Journal wrote, "The contests are not about removing a predatory threat or gathering pelts and meat or a trophy; like cockfighting, which the Legislature banned, they are only about blood sport." Down south in Las Cruces, the Sun-News agreed, writing: "There is no good argument for coyote killing contests." With this kind of momentum building, we are more confident than ever that this is the year New Mexico will make history and put an end to these senseless contests.
