Predator power

On the current coyote craze.

Many unfounded reasons have been given for a need to kill coyotes. An unmentioned but likely valid one is that many people fear coyotes and predators in general. Killing coyotes might just make one feel more powerful and brave.

An article in the West Carleton Review introduced the idea of a coyote “contest” to which parents could bring their children, making the event a “family day.” This thought is appalling and repugnant. Passing fear and hatred to innocent children is more than frightening; it is morally indefensible.
