Night hunting season for Maine coyotes underway

*Editor’s Note* – The Associate Press wrote the below comment appearing in the linked-to news article. Of course they probably just printed what they were told. They might as well have written, “There are more than two coyotes in Maine…” because officials simply do not know – and if they did, what difference would it make? I find it interesting that if the AP was told there were more than 10,000, then officials have toned down their claims as to populations of the wild canines. Why? Not long ago there were “well over 22,000.” That must be from all the coyote killing? But we are told by the “Ignorants” that coyote killing only forces coyotes to hold meetings and relay to all breeding females that they must reproduce more offspring to counter the random killing by evil humans. They do that you know.

And speaking of ignorance! If you want a great example of how people are completely ignorant about coyotes, their habits, their behavior and how it actually affects the ecosystems where the dogs live, read the comments at the end of the article.

It still amazes me.

There are more than 10,000 coyotes in Maine and they sometimes encroach on urban areas. They most often hunt at night.
