(Salem, OR) -- A bill aimed at banning the killing of coyotes for competition is moving to the Oregon House. The Senate approved the bill yesterday. It bans coyote hunting contests, competitions, tournaments or derbies for prizes or other inducements. It also requires hunters to forfeit remains of coyotes killed during banned events to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. Senate Bill 723 does not place a ban on the killing of coyotes by ranchers or farmers protecting their livestock.
