Anti-bounty

A letter to the editor.

As a young man growing up on a farm in northeastern Saskatchewan, I raised a coyote pup to adulthood. This is a very intelligent animal. I found its favourite food was a gopher, or Richardson’s Ground Squirrel.

By putting a provincewide bounty on the coyote, the government is harming a vital part of our ecosystem. Where livestock predation occurs, hire professionals to thin them out, don’t kill them all over this great province.

People are missed the mark with the wholesale killing of coyotes — we’ll pay a big price in the future. Hopefully they’ll think this out and rescind this bounty program come March 2010.
