Eleven coyotes were killed in a hunting contest this weekend in a remote area outside Bakersfield, California.

The killings are legal, but they've outraged conservationists who are working to ban predator killing competitions state-wide in California.

Camilla Fox is the executive director of Project Coyote, one of several environmental groups who've petitioned the California Fish and Game Commission to ban the contests.
