Directions for the Destruction of Wolves and Coyotes

April 17, 1907

From: United States Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Biological Survey – Circular No. 55

By Vernon Bailey – In charge of Geographic Distribution

“The losses from the destruction of stock by wolves and coyotes in the western United States amount to millions of dollars annually and seem to be increasing rather than decreasing. Practical means of preventing these losses are urgently needed. The present circular, based on field work of the Biological Survey, aims to present briefly the best methods of hunting, trapping and poisoning wolves and coyotes, of finding the dens and destroying the young, and of fencing to protect stock. By the methods given herein the numbers of wolves and coyotes may be rapidly diminished and the losses of stock thereby reduced to a minimum.”>>>Read More>>>
