North Carolina developing plan to control coyote population

RALEIGH, NC (WWAY) — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is seeking public comment on its draft Coyote Management Plan.

The agency developed the 187-page plan at the request of the North Carolina General Assembly to address the impacts of coyotes in our state and the threats that coyotes may pose to citizens and populations of native wildlife species.

The draft Coyote Management Plan provides biological information on coyotes in North Carolina, identifies concerns about coyotes, outlines the challenges of coyote control and provides strategies to minimize impacts of coyotes. The plan also outlines statutory changes that will improve coyote management, identifies known knowledge gaps and research needs and recommends new biological and social strategies to address coyote management issues.

The final plan will be presented to the wildlife commissioners for their approval at their February 22 business meeting.
