December 21, 2017. Coyote Control Based on Scientific House of Cards: Complaint Seeks to End Federal Reliance on Flawed 42-Year-Old Study. Today I became co-author with a major national group, PEER, to challenge a study that will no doubt start to legally reform carnivore management nationwide. We were able to get a lot of major people/scientists to sign on to this including Jane Goodall! It is the beginning of a new era of challenging special interest dominated flawed wildlife (specifically carnivore) management and this document will be used to challenge carnivore hunting and control programs in the very near future. This is a very exciting development! Below, is the scientific citation for this document:
