Yesterday marked the opening day of the Georgia Coyote Challenge, a coyote killing contest implemented by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (“DNR”) to “encourage the taking of coyotes from March to August.” As pointed out in Project Coyote’s science letter to the Governor and the DNR, signed by eighteen of our Science Advisory Board members, this state-sanctioned kill fest is “nothing more than a wildlife killing contest (WKC), tempting participants to kill coyotes for a chance to win a lifetime hunting license.”
On February 7th, the Arcadia City Council voted unanimously to start trapping and killing the city’s coyotes in response to complaints from residents about the animals’ presence.
