We have heard that WDFW has received some negative comment about the coyote derby that we are helping to sponsor. There is a great deal of misunderstanding about the derby, it seems. The derby is a legitimate temporary (60 day) tool to help keep coyote populations under control and limit mortality to the fawn population.
The WA Fish and Wildlife Commission needs to hear from you on this issue, emphasizing the importance of having this tool available.
Please sign and visit our online petition so we can show them this is a needed tool: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/403/121/037/support-fawn-populations/
