If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, we hope you can join Project Coyote, Marin Humane Society, and Marin Parks on October 24 at the Mill Valley Library for a presentation on coexisting with coyotes.
As Sara Randazzo of the Wall Street Journal reports, “Animal-advocacy groups are attempting to abolish commercial fur trapping in California through a recently filed lawsuit that contends the state’s fees are illegally low.”
Conservation groups, aiming to end California’s dwindling fur trade, filed a lawsuit Wednesday that would force state wildlife authorities to raise license fees to levels required by law to cover the full costs of regulating the trapping, killing and skinning of wild animals.
Several organizations are joining to sue a government agency that kills millions of animals each year.
It seems like everyone has a strong opinion about coyotes. Some people love them as a symbol of the wild deserts, yet others can’t stand them. What are the facts about these animals?
Although humans have tried everything from poisons and gases to helicopters and engineered epidemics to kill coyotes, the predator has thrived in the United States.
