I don't really have a problem with hunting coyotes, as long as they have four legs. They certainly are not endangered around here, and are one of two reasons (along with hawks) that we don't have a doggie door for my daughter's small Maltese. In fact, we have a water feature out back and I found wet coyote footprints on the ground this morning when I took the dog out. I'm not sure I personally would enjoy a contest to get the biggest pile of carcases, but I wouldn't enjoy euthanizing stray dogs either and that serves enough of a public purpose that the government pays people to do it. Love the picture.
