Rock County Billboard Seeks End of Hunting Contests
A hunter in Rock County has purchased a billboard in the hope of ending coyote and other wildlife killing contests. According to WKOW, a billboard near Janesville on Highway 14 in Brodhead, is calling for the ban of all hunting contests in Rock and Green counties. There has also been a Facebook page of the same name that has emerged calling for the ban. The billboard features a picture of two young coyotes and calls for the ban in large lettering. Unsuccessful legislation was attempted in 2019 to ban killing contests statewide, and California and Vermont are among a small group of states that have passed a similar legislation.
