"Dave's" photo has become a part of the Barnes & Noble
package. MEET A COYOTE KILLER
When a coyote hunter e-mailed this to us after discovering
the C.A.S.H. website, I decided to print it to let our supporters
see what coyote hunting is. This was painful on the heels of reading
God's Dog, but it further strengthens our resolve to stop coyote
From: Dave Dave130@flash.net
was so delighted to find this sight (sic), as a matter of fact
I have made a large donation in your name to the NRA and Outdoor
Sportsman foundation. Please post all the companies that you
support so that I can in turn let them know that they will lose
Thanks for making it easier for me to Find out who the real conservationist
are!!! Keep in touch
WHAT'S ON THE MIND(?) OF COYOTE KILLERS? JUST WHAT YOU'D EXPECT!
From a hunter's website:
"[Q:] Is a Ruger 10/22 loaded with CCI Stingers sufficient
for shooting coyotes as long as ranges are kept fairly short
(under 100 yards)? ..
[A:] If you simply want dead coyotes and don't want the pelts.
A 22 with stingers will do it if you put manure in the hollow
points. They will eventually die from infection if hit."
In the next issue of the C.A.S.H. COURIER,
Marilyn Leybra, a wildlife rehabilitator will have an article
about how she single-handedly rescued a coyote from a leghold
trap, and their immediate bonding.
STOP THE GUYS WHO PROFIT FROM AND PROMOTE COYOTE KILLING FOR
PROFIT: THE BUREAU OF WILDLIFE (BOW), THE LUNATIC FRINGE OF THE
BOW of the NYS DEC (Department of Environmental Conservation)
is attempting to change a regulation that would extend coyote hunting
to 6 months. Coyotes can now be killed 24 hours a day, 5 months
This proposed regulation was published in the New York State
Register of March 31, 1999 as ENV-51098-00006RP. BOW will accept
comments until May 27, 1999.
Comments should be addressed to:
Mr. Gerald Barnhart
Division of Fish, Wildlife and Marine Resources
Department of Environmental Conservation

By FAX: (518)457-0691
THINK THAT'S BAD? SEE BELOW:
The New York State Assembly has a bill pending to allow coyote
hunting all year!
Assembly Bill A06603 establishes an open season on coyotes
to run from January 1st through December 31st. It would allow hunting
of coyotes with dogs and allow use of handguns to hunt coyotes.
[Keep in mind that 12 year olds can hunt.]
Comments should be addressed to:
The Honorable Sheldon Silver
Speaker, New York State Assembly
LOB 932/CAP 349,
Albany, NY 12248
Governor George E. Pataki
Albany, NY 12224
What you can do: Write Comments! Points to mention:
- We urge you to oppose the adoption of the regulation as
well as the passage of A06603 for humane, ecological and economic
- We oppose the extension of the season as it serves no ecological
purpose. It is proposed solely to accommodate sport hunters'
demand for extended opportunities to hunt coyotes. As stated
in numerous publications and letters by DEC personnel, extending
the hunting season for coyotes is not an effective population
control measure, but rather an accommodation to the hunting community.
- We further oppose the extension of the coyote hunting season
because it favors hunters over the general public. Hunters are
4.5% of NY State's population. Of those 4.5%, only a fraction
hunt small game. Why should wildlife, such as New York's coyotes, "owned" and
enjoyed by all the people of the state of New York, be stressed,
harassed, and destroyed to accommodate a miniscule portion of
the population? Coyotes subsist on insects, rodents and carrion.
They are the sanitation workers of the forests, and they are
known to put out small fires! They are valuable members of the
ecosystem in which they live.
- We oppose the extension of coyote hunting on humanitarian
grounds. When the hunting season is extended, pups born in April
and still dependent on their parents in October are orphaned
and have little chance of surviving on their own.
- Coyotes are classified as "small game" and can
be killed by 12-year-olds using firearms.
- Small caliber weapons used on coyotes will produce a high
- Most Americans oppose hunting solely for recreational reasons.
