Your view: Letter writer wrong about coyote hunts


In a recent letter in the Times Leader, an animal “expert” and “humane educator” tells the public to stop killing coyotes because “… they have the same DNA as dogs and killing a coyote is like killing your neighbor’s dog.”

The writer also states that “… killing them interferes with what nature is trying to accomplish.”

The writer is accurate on this point because nature will kill the excess animals with things such as rabies, causing the animal to face a slow and painful death. If the writer wants to be honest – she can describe how the dog and animal population is controlled today.

I am sure she does not want to discuss that. Let us deal with facts and not fantasy.
