Coyotes in action are killing machines
I do not understand where Earlene Busch is coming from when she says that grasshoppers are more of a threat than the coyote (Enmity Towards Coyotes Hard to Understand, Letters, Jan. 27).
Coyotes have pretty much put a stop to sheep farming in Nova Scotia. They have almost depleted our deer and small game here in Cape Breton.
How can anyone call them beautiful animals? They are killing machines!
I wonder if she would think they were so beautiful if she saw them in action. They will pull a deer’s heart out through its hind quarters while it is still alive – not a pretty sight!
More pets will die from coyotes, more livestock will die from coyotes, more wildlife will die from coyotes, but most importantly and unfortunately more people are going to die from coyotes.
The alarm bells are ringing. We had better start to listen!
No one will ever convince me that the coyote is of any value to our society.
I for one will kill every coyote I can and hope that other hunters and trappers and other citizens with the means will do the same safely. Bert Campbell Inverness
