1 Coyote Killed During 2 ½ Month Hunting Season

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP/WBOC)- Delaware wildlife officials say one coyote was killed during the two and a half month hunting season that ended on March 10.

The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control said Monday that the lone harvested coyote was shot by a deer hunter in the Hockessin area. No trappers caught a coyote.

David Saveikis, director of the Division of Fish and Wildlife, said the hunt indicates that the coyote population in Delaware is small.

The state legislature ordered DNREC to develop rules for a hunting season after farmers said the coyotes pose a threat to livestock.

A six-month season for hunting coyotes will begin Sept. 1.
