Ohio: Urge Your State Legislators to Protect Coyotes

This action is CLOSED.

Protect coyotes by urging your legislators to oppose HB 553. This bill would stop the Ohio Division of Wildlife from adopting rules that would protect coyotes from killing contests, as well as stop year-round coyote hunting and trapping, and instead give that power to a legislature heavily influenced by agriculture and trophy hunting special interests.
