Under pressure

Nova Scotia to offer coyote bounty to trappers.

Critic Leo Glavine pointed out that the minister’s own website includes submissions from biologists who cite scientific studies that prove bounties don’t work.

“They’re telling us that it’s not the way to go,” he said, adding that live-trapping of individual nuisance animals is the best way to deal with the problem.

As well, he said the minister has already conceded that the province suspended offering a bounty for coyotes in the 1990s when it became clear it simply didn’t work.

Glavine said the province has been under pressure to act since the mauling death last fall of a Toronto woman who was hiking in Cape Breton.
