Animal industry

Manitoba Cattle Producers Association calls for bounty on coyotes ($50) and wolves ($300) in the names of animal and industry welfare.

The general public may find coyotes harmless, even likening them to the famous cartoon character. With that view, perhaps the MCPA’s demands that bounties be introduced might appear callous.

Let’s clear that up. The bounties are intended to restore a good, healthy wildlife ecosystem, which is no longer in balance. “Our position is not broad-stroke elimination,” says Mowat, “but to gain control on an individual basis. The population mismanagement is resulting in detriment to the industry and to the welfare of these animals — the fact that so many have mange is an indicator that the problem has gone from bad to worse. And we also don’t want to see this issue escalate to human tragedy, as it did on the East Coast.”
