    Four Paws responded to a help call from a farmer this a.m., and ended up capturing an entire litter of coyote pups. There were 5 males and 2 females, with one female really marked special with 4 white paws and a white tip on here tail. There may have been one more pup, but if so, the mother drug it further back into the den. Here is a picture of the pups, with their eyes still shut: [​IMG]

    As posted by Four Paws on another site:

    Removed at request of farm owner to be euthanized, stuffed, & mounted with mother. He's been losing the calves so I guess he's earned it. Interesting to say the least. Should make a great mount

    Man, that's hard to swallow for me. All I see is "puppies" yet I do realize they are coyotes and what needs to be done with them. I'm just glad I'm not the trigger man. I have shot 2-3 of my own pups that had worms and were already stiff but somehow were still moaning to put them out of their misery. This would be hard for me.

    But like I said, nothing against you for doing what needs to be done.

    Well, it is/was up to the land owner, and the vet will be the "Trigger man".

    Wouldn't take much to strangle them little fellars with your hands. Would save a vet bill.

    Them puppies will grow up and kill deer, turkey, calves etc. They won't be cute for long. Dave

    Yes, gotta take care of business. Yotes are a definite threat to our deer herd and turkey. Domestic stock does not have much chance against them, either.

    One piece of advice I would give to any of you newer coyote hunters is to never let any landowners think you care more about coyotes or their pups than you do their livestock. If you are serious about acquiring a lot of land to hunt, they have to feel you put their interests first.

    I have no clue about this, but since they were found so young, would they do well as pets? Seems to me that they would grow up just like a dog if somebody wanted one.

    We've discussed this on here before and while I love wildlife and am quite tender hearted when it comes to most animals (house cats excluded), I wouldnt hesitate to put a boot heel to their necks. There will be plenty more survive to replace these. I can't imagine the number of turkeys, nests, and fawns those little suckers will eat in a lifetime!
