Wow, talk about a lack of foresight. The meat industry has way too much pull with government.

And to read about why this is a bad idea: http://www.coyoterescue.org/article_bekoff.html

Wanton killing doesn't work, because little attention is paid to the versatile behavior of these adaptable predators. And disease and unsanitary conditions frequently cause more livestock death than do coyotes or other predators. Only rarely is the "problem" coyote caught or killed, and when coyotes are killed, others take their place. There's even evidence that in areas where coyotes are killed, birth rates and litter size increase, the result of which is the maintenance or increase in coyote numbers.
