Ok, so I ran into a situation earlier… Keep in mind that I personally know this person so I will not disrespect him. But I was taken aback about something he mentioned on social media. He was complaining about how a coyote took a turkey that his friend had shot while they were hunting in the countryside. His remedy was/is the typical anti predator answer – hunt them and kill them!
Sorry but, I just don’t see how anyone can justify being angry at a coyote for hunting in the countryside which is his territory!
Where else is a coyote supposed to hunt?
Where else is a coyote supposed to live?
Before I go any farther, let me mention that YES I honestly do think coyotes are a problem in many areas, but killing (shooting) them is NOT the answer and is unacceptable! There are MANY proven cost effective and successful NON LETHAL measures to deter coyotes away!
