Grisly sight for animal lover in drive-thru

coyoteA woman was in tears of terror and shock after sitting behind a truck with as many as 20 coyote carcasses piled in it last week.

According to MetroNews.ca, Tiffiny Koback was in the drive-thru at a Saskatoon Tim Hortons with her husband when they saw the GMC Sierra pick-up truck.

“By the time we ordered our coffee, I couldn’t talk – I was in tears,” Koback told Metro. “He’s driving around Saskatoon with a truck box full of dead animals, so obviously he’s not concerned about who sees it.”

In a photo she snapped with her cell phone and posted on Facebook, Koback was able to count as many as 20 carcasses.

Later, Koback searched the regulations on coyote hunting and trapping in Saskatchewan and was dismayed to find that – like most of the rest of Canada – there are virtually none.

Metro contacted a conservation officer with the Ministry of the Environment who confirmed that there is an open season on coyotes in southern Saskatchewan and there are no regulations on how they are displayed or transported.

The photo that sparked the story was not displayed on our website as it is very upsetting. It can be found on the MetroNews.ca article.
