Ontario Quietly Approves Coyote Killing Contests
This winter several sport hunting outfitters organized coyote killing contests across Ontario. These hunting contests are defacto coyote bounties and are illegal under Ontario’s Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act.
Section 11 (1) of the Act reads:
11.(1) Except with the authorization of the Minister, a person shall not,
(a) hunt for hire, gain or the expectation of gain;
(b) hire, employ or induce another person to hunt for gain;
(c) trap for hire, gain or the expectation of gain;
(d) hire, employ or induce another person to trap for gain; or
(e) pay or accept a bounty.
Despite the public rhetoric by the McGuinty government defending coyotes and standing firm against a formal coyote bounty, it has quietly approved coyote killing contests by choosing not to enforce section 11(1) of the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act.
Peaceful Parks' letter to the Ministry of Natural Resource asking why charges have not been laid against the organizers of coyotes killing contests, and their response can be found here:
Peaceful Parks is investigating whether civil action can be taken to enforce the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act if the government fails to enforce the law.
