Dozens of dead coyotes found in woods behind North Carolina neighborhood
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) — Authorities are investigating after a pile of dozens of dead coyotes was found in a wooded area behind a Charlotte neighborhood.
WBTV reported that the bodies of 70 to 80 dead coyotes were found Thursday behind the McCarron Way subdivision.
The neighbors who found the bodies called animal control, who said it is legal to kill coyotes, but the carcasses were not disposed of properly.
The dead coyotes should have been taken to a landfill and only certain landfills will accept the bodies, according to animal control.
