A bounty on coyotes in Utah?

The whole notion of having a bounty and calling it part-and-parcel of a "wildlife management" program is absurd. Utah, with its old-fangled approach to removing a predator from its wildlife "resource," has just taken the whole American wildlife management science back a whole century to a time when even government agencies paid bounties to rifle-toting "hunters" who turned in evidence of a gray wolf kill. And let's recall that, event today, state fish and "game" agencies refer to what hunters kill as the "harvest." Read about Utah's war on coyotes right here.
