A popular coyote hunting tournament in North Carolina is being blasted by animal rights activists, who insist the killing is tearing apart coyote families and creating orphans.
The Carolina Coyote Classic is set to hold its sixth annual hunt Feb, 8, 9 and 10 in Stanly County, with cash prizes for the biggest kill and hunting teams that bring in the most dead coyotes.
There was a small town in New Mexico that held an annual tournament up until a few years, using the proceeds to buy sports equipment for their high school until the PETAphiles stepped in and put a stop to it.
As I recall, it was a small local event that drew absolutely no attention whatsoever until a family from out of state moved in, then those fine folks notified PETA about it. That year was their final hunt.
