Killing Games Film Screening & Panel Discussion

The Southwest Environmental Center and our partners are sponsoring screenings of the film Killing Games: Wildlife in the Crosshairs in Las Cruces and Albuquerque. At each location, the film will be followed by a panel of experts who will discuss the growing plague of wildlife killing contests and efforts to end them in New Mexico. The film is produced by Project Coyote.

A bill to ban coyote killing contests will be introduced again in the NM Legislature this year. It is the same bill that passed the NM Senate in 2017 and probably would have passed the House also but did not come up for a floor vote. Wildlife advocates are hopeful that the bill will be passed and signed into law this year, making New Mexico the third state to ban coyote killing contests, after California and Vermont.

The fact that wildlife killing contests exist in New Mexico is due to the lack of legal protection for coyotes and many other species. Another bill that will be introduced by Senator Jeff Steinborn would fix this by giving authority to the NM Department of Game and Fish to manage all wildlife.
