New Paper “Once I Found Out” shows the general public’s distaste for carnivore hunting

November 15, 2017. New Paper “Once I Found Out” shows the general public’s distaste for carnivore hunting. This is an exciting new paper that I co-authored with Dr. Jennifer Jackman in the peer-reviewed journal Human Dimensions of Wildlife showing that voters on Cape Cod, MA overwhelming opposed hunting practices on coyotes. I am sure that future research will verify this in most of the U.S. Citation for paper is:

Jackman, J. L. and J. G. Way. 2017. Once I found out: Awareness of and attitudes toward coyote hunting policies in Massachusetts. Human Dimensions of Wildlife, DOI: 10.1080/10871209.2017.1397824.

Will state wildlife agencies acknowledge this and guide future management to how the public wishes, or will they remain special interest focused on satisfying the small minority of people that hunt carnivores?
