Commentary: No, we don’t need to kill coyotes

Project Coyote Coyote America, by Dan Flores (Basic). “Close encounters with coyotes have now become the country’s most common large-wildlife experience,” Flores writes in this engaging study. Coyotes are a common sight in cities, strolling down city blocks in Los Angeles and scavenging through Central Park. Flores examines the mythology around the animals, which were often deified: Native Americans told stories of mischievous Old Man Coyote, the Aztecs worshipped the erotic god Nezahualcoyotl, and Carl Jung referred to the coyote deity as “a bestial and divine being.” Flores also details a century of large-scale eradication attempts by the government, which continue today, even though, in the sixties, nature programming made coyotes popular with the public.

WHO WE ARE

Project Coyote, a national non-profit organization based in Northern California, is a North American coalition of scientists, educators, ranchers and citizen leaders promoting compassionate conservation and coexistence between people and wildlife through education, science and advocacy. We work to change laws and policies to protect native carnivores from abuse and mismanagement, advocating coexistence instead of killing.

WHAT WE DO

All of our work — through education, science, and advocacy — strives to create fundamental and systemic changes in the ways wild carnivores are viewed and treated in North America. Project Coyote seeks to stop the wanton and cruel killing of native carnivores, to reform predator management, to create successful models of coexistence, and to inspire the next generation to care for Wild Nature.

WHY CARNIVORES

Since European colonists stepped foot on the North American continent, native carnivores have been viewed as a threat to livestock and to species humans hunt for food. Like Native Americans, carnivores have been brutally killed and bountied in an effort to eradicate their populations. As the most persecuted and maligned native predator, the coyote represents all misunderstood and exploited predators.
