Coyote Hunter Sparks Controversey

A U.P. coyote hunter’s conduct is being called into question. The man, who is still anonymous at this point, shot a coyote several times in Ironwood this past winter before having his dogs come in to finish off the job. Hounding coyotes is permitted in Michigan, but the United States Humane Society feels, in this case, an ethical line was crossed as the hunter encouraged his dogs to rip apart the defenseless creature while filming the ordeal in front of a child. The video that was posted to mLive’s website, along with an in-depth article written by John Barnes, has been sent to the Gogebic County Prosecutor’s office. Court officials have said that they will be reviewing the tape for any possible charges. A link to the video is here but be warned that it is very graphic.
