Talked to a couple people near Ballarat last weekend who said that coyotes in general have become a big problem in and around Death Valley. They said that too many tourists are feeding them and as a result several hang out along side the roads hoping for handouts. This is considered a problem for a number of reasons, but the outcome is that there is a plan to possibly shoot the coyotes that hang out near roads. The irony is that people thinking they're doing something nice for coyotes might wind up being responsible for setting them up for execution.

tronagirl: I'm not sure where the people who you talked to got that story from, but it's not likely that any governmental agency would shoot coyotes. The public backlash would be too much of a public relations hassle. In these politically correct times it's not enough to be efficient, it is also necessary to consider how the public will react. It's costly and it takes a lot of time, but it's how things are done nowadays for worse or even worse. The only time an animal can be destroyed is if it has actually attacked a human. Otherwise, it's not likely that lethal action will be taken even if that would be the most prudent course to take.
