Re: “One Controversial Coyote Hunt Is Canceled, and Another Crops Up

Coyote hunting is not really hunting and is an insult to true hunters. Hunters hunt for food and have respect for the woods and the wildlife in it, my family comes from a long line of hunters so I know this first hand. People that call themselves hunters that hunt coyote have no respect for wildlife, and sadly, Vermont Fish and Wildlife seem to turn their heads to this.

Coyote hunters use a variety of methods to kill and torment coyotes. Packs of radio-collared dogs will chase coyotes until they are exhausted while the hunter follows on an ATV, then they are either beaten with a stick or shot just for the sheer thrill of killing. Using leg hold traps is another method to get coyotes while the trapper takes a selfie with the trapped animal that is terrified for its life. Is this really a wholesome tradition that coyote hunters/trappers claim it to be?

I am thankful for groups like Protect Our Wildlife, for bringing awareness to the general public of these currently accepted practices that need to change. We need to put regulations on coyote hunting and stop killing contest which just enables this sadistic practice.
