Dane County Board works to ban killing contests

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV)— The Dane County Board of Supervisors is taking steps to ban all wildlife killing contests.

The board unanimously passed a resolution on Thursday night that urges the Wisconsin Legislature to take action against competitions like Moondog Madness where hunters compete to kill as many coyotes as they can.

The board said competitions like these that kill predators don’t serve any legitimate wildlife management purposes.

Dane County is the first county in the Midwest to move forward with a plan like this.
