Rule being considered to eliminate animal killing contests in Arizona
May 20, 2019
The Arizona Game and Fish Commission will consider a rule to ban animal killing contests in June.
A 30-day public comment period ended May 12 on a move to end contests where cash and prizes are awarded to those who kill the most or largest or smallest animal.
At least 40 such contests have been held in the state over the past two years. We’ll hear more from Joe Trudeau, Southwest advocate at the Center for Biological Diversity and Matt Francis, who is with Project Coyote.
