Coyote Conflict: Why Killing Coyotes Doesn’t Work

(COYOTES/WILDLIFE CONSERVATION) An increasingly familiar sight throughout U.S. cities and suburbs, coyotes are the most common large predators in America. Because of this, roughly half a million are killed every year--a rate unlike any other wild animal in U.S. history--whether by the hands of sport hunters or government entities. However, controlling coyote populations has proven to be largely ineffective as coyotes in full colonization mode are able to withstand up to a 70 percent yearly kill rate without suffering any decline in their total population. Yet in places like Yellowstone where coyotes are not disturbed, their populations stabilize. In reality, as long as pets are kept inside at night, coyotes pose little to no harm to urbanites--at least no more than any other wild predator. In the article below, Dan Flores asks, "So why do we continue to mark them as targets for our blood sports?" Read on to learn about the long, controversial history of coyote population control and its effects. -- Global Animal
