Shooting Coyotes From Your House

Last year I published the following article in the Wildlife News, an on-line newspaper website. With my new website, and the post’s links, I wanted to bring attention to this despicable practice once again. It is hunting season nationwide, and people are doing awful things to our wildlife – and they are getting away with it. Enjoy the article on “House hunting coyotes in Massachusetts.”


As I publish this note linking to “The Wildlife News” article, I see a similar mentality with this story from Wyoming:

November 1, 2012. Update Nov. 2. Photos published by Wildlife Service employee illustrate torture. What a low-life. He kills predators for a living and enjoys watching his trapped animals suffer. I hope his employment is terminated immediately. Update Nov. 2.: It gets better, the trapper justifies his actions (click here)… I wouldn’t be surprised if he was friends with some of the “house hunters” that live on Cape Cod, MA and elsewhere. Furthermore, the state wildlife agencies do nothing to stop this behavior which is further reason to reform these agencies from Montana to Massachusetts.
