Coyote hunt fund-raiser canceled after howls of protest

Associated Press

TAMAQUA, Pa. - A planned coyote hunt to benefit a local Salvation Army branch was called off after howls of protests from animal-rights groups.

The "Shotguns and Pickup Trucks Coyote Hunt" scheduled in January was canceled Monday, the day after a newspaper story about the event.

"I've had nothing but phone calls today," Salvation Army Capt. Sharon Cupp said. "The coyote hunt is canceled."

Lehigh Valley Animal Rights Coalition president Virginia Wolfe said she was stunned to learn of the event. Activists had planned to drop dollar bill-size protest notes in Salvation Army collection kettles before the event was canceled.

"Blood sports just make people boil," Wolfe said. "It certainly diminishes all of us as human beings."

The hunt was not sponsored by the Salvation Army but by members of the Tamaqua chapter's advisory board, Cupp said. The same group previously organized a sale of sporting goods to raise money for the chapter.

In Pennsylvania, anyone with a hunting license can hunt coyotes at any time of the year.

Almost half of the $20 registration fee for the planned hunt would have gone to the Salvation Army. The rest of the money would have gone toward prizes for successful hunters.

The Tamaqua branch of the Salvation Army serves parts of Schuylkill and Carbon counties, where hunting is popular. Many public schools in the counties close for the first day of buck season.

Is that when they collect money for the starvation army?[%|] People should learn to mind thier own bussines when it comes to protesting against helping the poor. They only took away from those in need, they didn't save a yote. Loosers.[:(!]

What really needs to happen is for someone to organize the hunt anyway and donate the money anyway to the Salvation Army or to another worthy charity. If the money raised goes somewhere else make sure the local media finds out that the money would have gone to Salvation Army. I wonder if the animal rights whackos ever give money to worthy groups or if they just fuck things up for the ones that do.

I agree beekeeper that's what I had in mind when I said another worthy group. I also like Salvation Army and hate that they are bowing to pressure from nut jobs.

[red][b]UPDATE[/B][/RED] [url]http://www.philly.com/mld/philly/news/local/7363436.htm[/url] Coyote hunt fund-raiser back on with different sponsor Associated Press TAMAQUA, Pa. - A coyote hunting contest planned to benefit a local Salvation Army chapter but called off after protests from animal-rights groups is back on - but with an unnamed sponsor and no connection with the charity. The "Shotguns and Pickup Trucks Coyote Hunt" was scheduled in January but canceled Monday after a newspaper story. Members of the advisory board of the Salvation Army's Tamaqua chapter said Wednesday that the hunt would go on with a different sponsor. "The Outdoor Expo Committee and the Salvation Army have absolutely nothing to do with it," said Linda Yulenavage, speaking on behalf of the committee, which is made up of members of the advisory board. The committee identified the new sponsor only as "a local sports club." "Out of respect for the wishes of the Salvation Army, the Outdoor Expo Committee has decided to abandon its plans to be associated in any way with this planned event," the group said in a statement. "We are still upset about it, but we have no venue to address it," said Virginia Wolfe, president of the Lehigh Valley Animal Rights Coalition. "As long as they had an organization involved we could lean on them." In Pennsylvania, anyone with a hunting license can hunt coyotes at any time of the year. Organizers said earlier that the contest would take place Jan. 10-17 in Schuylkill, Carbon, Lehigh, Luzerne, Monroe, Northampton and Pike counties, and cash prizes would be awarded for the heaviest coyotes.
