A statewide ban on wildlife killing contests was approved by The Governor’s Regulatory Review Council earlier this month. Following California, Vermont, and New Mexico, Arizona is now the fourth state to ban such contests. Counties in Arizona including Yavapai and Pima had already implemented the ban prior to the approval from the review committee making a statewide ban. The ban was first proposed in 1999 by the Game and Fish Department however the Governor’s Regulatory Review Council ruled that only the state’s legislature has the authority to enact such a ban. Arizona’s ban on predator-killing competitions will take effect on November 1st.
