Some Alberta residents are raising questions about the province's coyote hunting policy.

This comes after dozens of dead coyotes were found dumped on a roadside near Cypress Provincial Park.

All of the animals were missing a body part and fish and wildlife officers believe bounty seekers may be to blame.

 


They're born predators and for Alberta farmers, coyotes can be a serious threat to livestock.

"If you have a farm and you have problems with coyotes you can dispense of them, they are euthanized on farm property across the province," said Sustainable Resources Development Minister Mel Knight.

There's no limit on how many coyotes can be killed.

But nature photographer Rick Price is questioning that policy after a disturbing incident last weekend.

"I am not one for more laws, but when you see carnage like this something has to be done," commented Price.

Price is referring to an incident that occurred last Saturday.

He saw a man transporting a truckload of dead coyotes.

It turns out the driver had discovered 31 coyotes illegally dumped in front of his farm near Elkwater.

Alberta Fish and Wildlife is investigating and officers have since found another 10 dead coyotes along a stretch of road nearby.

41 animals were found in total and investigators tell CTV News all of the coyotes had been shot and their paws were cut off.

"I have been doing this job for 30 years and this is the first time we have seen coyotes with their paws removed. In all likelihood, the coyotes were taken for the bounty," said Alberta Fish and Wildlife Superintendent Jim Mitchell.

There must be a strict law for wildlife protection. Coyotes are also called American Jackal, and are species of canine. They sometimes become harmful but it doesnt mean that we extinct their species by killing them. It was very cruel to kill them and remove their paws. Proper investigation and change in hunting policies should be done. dissertation writing service
