Petition Closed

This is being done carelessly and cruelly when there are alternate methods of population control. Traps are being placed close to water sources, livestock, and homes and are posing danger to pets, children and other wildlife.

Letter to
US Fish and Wildlife
I just signed the following petition addressed to: US Fish and Wildlife.

----------------
Stop the use of coyote bait/traps

This is being done carelessly and cruelly when there are alternate methods of population control. Traps are being placed close to water sources, livestock, and homes and are posing danger to pets, children and other wildlife.
The coyote population was manageable until measures to eradicate wolf populations were taken. By removing the coyote's natural enemy, the problem was created, and now the "solution" is a deadly poison that has cost lives of pets and other wildlife. In many cases, the 1080 is found within less than 30 feet of homes with children, and even water sources. This is a painful death for all animals, including the coyote. If the goal is to protect livestock, that's what dogs, fences, and even donkeys are for!!!
Please stop the use of compound 1080 and other toxins and find alternate methods of dealing with coyotes!
