Help Stop Reckless Legislation that would Legalize Bounties on Coyote and Beaver in Minnesota
Your help is needed – immediately- to help stop two bills that would legalize bounties on coyotes and beaver in Minnesota. These two bills are fast-tracking through the Minnesota legislature and- if passed- will allow county boards- by resolution- to authorize the killing of coyotes and beavers “by all legal methods” through paid bounties.
While the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has come out publicly against bounties and science has shown wildlife bounty programs to be economically inefficient, counter-productive and ecologically damaging, several State Representatives and Senators want to turn the state back to the Dark Ages of wildlife management.
Your help is needed TODAY to help defeat these bills before they become law in Minnesota!
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
Please call or email your Representatives and Senator and ask them to oppose HF0621 and SF0228. To find your state legislator and their contact information, click here. Points to convey in your communications:
Thank you for taking action today to protect coyotes and beaver from being reduced to body-parts for ill-conceived, economically inefficient and inhumane bounty programs!
