US Government: Stop Killing 227 Coyotes a Day!

  • by: Kristi Arnold
  • target: Dr. Gregory Parham, Administrator of APHIS William Clay, Deputy Administrator for Wildlife Services

The U.S. government is killing 227 coyotes a day using taxpayer money. The supposed purpose is to protect livestock, but a former wildlife service trapper reported that the practice can actually attract more coyotes.

Wildlife Services has killed 1.1 million coyotes since 2000. That averages out to 227 coyotes a day.

As former Wildlife Service trapper Gary Strader puts it in the documentary, Wild Things, "If you kill a coyote, two will show up at its funeral." 

Additionally, aerial gunning (i.e. shooting coyotes from government helicopters or airplanes) is hazardous to human life and can cost more than $800 an hour.

Tell Wildlife Services to stop killing coyotes!

Dear sirs,


We the undersigned ask that you stop the practice of killing wolves for livestock protection.
