Coyote bounty unnecessary

-A A +A

I was raised to eat what I kill, except for termites and such, and I do not understand our Grayson County supervisors’ concern about coyotes eating deer. We have more than enough deer out by Gold Hill.
They are a pest! They wipe out my neighbors’ gardens and cause car wrecks. Even this time of year, I usually see at least three when I drive back from town in early morning or evenings.
I’ve seen whole carcasses dumped by the road, missing only the head, or sometimes just the rack gone. I hate the idea of making trophy sport for outsiders who come in with their 4-wheelers and enough ammo to start a war (maybe because they can’t shoot straight). Is this what we want for Grayson County?
I think that new supervisor is just trying to make himself popular by offering a cash bounty for killing coyotes. At my house we have more trouble with raccoons, which coyotes eat, than we do with coyotes. Eddie Rosenbaum is wasting our tax money.
