Dead or alive

While Saskatchewan offers $20 for dead coyotes, Alberta’s Institute for Wildlife Conservation is looking for a live one with an arrow in its head.

“Some said it’s through an eye, others said it’s in the neck,” she said.

“At this point it doesn’t seem to be in distress, but our concern is his condition is going to deteriorate and he is going to go off somewhere and hide and expire.”

The Institute takes in about a half-dozen coyotes a year, most often struck by cars.

They are treated and returned to the wild.

“It’s just really upsetting knowing an animal is suffering,” Tamasi said.

“It’s just really sad … the cruelty towards wildlife.”
