Everett Griner talks about the coyote problem spreading across the Southeast in today’s Agri View.
Well, coyotes are making news again. My last report dealt with a growing problem in our larger midwestern cities. This one is out of the southeast region. No telling where the next one will be from because the once-noted creature from the west is a growing problem everywhere. But, the new present problem is in the South — Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama primarily. One county in Louisiana reported 160 coyotes killed in a single month. There is especially a problem for people who own small animals. Now that includes cats, dogs, and chickens, especially chickens. And, they are beginning to affect wildlife — squirrels, rabbits, raccoons, possums. Most of the coyotes killed were killed by hunting club members. That’s men with guns. I’ll tell you this though. Men with guns are not the solution to the coyote problem. Never will be.
That’s Agri View for today. I’m Everett Griner…
