End Killing Contests
Take Action to Ban Killing Contests In New Jersey
There are 2 things you can do today to advocate to put a stop to killing contests in our state.
Killing senseless amounts of animals for enjoyment is both ethically wrong and ecologically irresponsible. These events normalize an astounding degree of violence. Banning killing contests with bill S2409/A502 would put an end to the senseless killing and torment of New Jersey wildlife. This legislation would prohibit competitive events, often referred to as derbies or tournaments, wherein hunters compete to kill the most or largest wild animals to win prizes.
