The Bloodbath of Killing Contests–Episode 16
Jun 3rd, 2020 by Animal Wellness Podcast
Wildlife killing contests are orgies of wanton killing and waste, sponsored by gun-manufacturers and even mom-and-pop businesses, that result in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of animals a year. Prizes awarded to participants as young as 10 years old go to the killers who bring the most of certain animals, including the heaviest of them and even the youngest or smallest.
Growing attention to this barbarism has resulted in six states implementing bans against a bloodbath legitimate hunters, environmentalists and animal-activists alike find appalling. Guests Camilla Fox, from Project Coyote and producer/director of the documentary “Killing Games: Wildlife in the Crosshairs,” and Lain Kahlstrom, state affairs director for Animal Wellness Action, join hosts Joseph Grove and Marty Irby to talk about the contests and what is being done to outlaw them in the remaining 44 states.
