The Coyote Hunt in Hancock, NY has been CANCELLED Due to Your Help!

UPDATE: But it’s not over yet. Whitney Point Coon hunters (which isn’t far from Hancock) have picked up the dates that were planned on. The killing of innocent animals will be carried on by a hunting group. Sorry about the news.

Gail updated us with a link to this “Hancock FD Coyote Hunt Cancellation Statement” which I’ve posted here with a screenshot. Gail monitored hundreds of posts and saw no threats of violence, as the statement purports. Please take note of some of the angry comments posted by those supporting the contest, threatening to continue to kill as many coyotes as possible. It’s a mindset which Gail notes speaks for itself. Thank you everyone for signing the petition! We all made change happen with 20,606 supporters!

    it’s a Ghandi day when 20,606 signatures becomes aggressive behavior. Keep those pens poised and ready.
