PREDATORS — An out-of-state group has triggered more than 500 emails to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife protesting the annual Save our Fawns coyote hunting derby underway in northeastern Washington.

Organizers say the derby is a way to give struggling deer herds a better chance to recover.
