NS culls thousands of coyotes then complains about overabundance of crop-eating ‘pests’

It’s truly remarkable how politically-motivated wildlife management can be. Take Nova Scotia, for example: for the last several years, the maritime province has culled thousands of coyotes. There are a variety of excuses for doing this and we won’t get into them here.

The ridiculous part? The province now wants to expedite hunting licenses and permits to reduce the number of deer and other wildlife which are damaging crops.

To be honest, it’s a bit baffling that they don’t understand the basic process of the ecosystems they’re in charge of. They try to kill as many predators as possible, then are perplexed by the onslaught of lower-order mammals increasing in numbers.

While governments continue to make idiotic decisions such as this, we will continue to educate the public. Because the government is in charge today. But ultimately, they answer to us.
