North Carolina Court Halts Spotlight Hunting of Coyotes
CoyoteDefenders of Wildlife joined a number of other conservation groups in court to stop spotlight hunting of coyotes at night. The hunting was occurring statewide and included areas that are inhabited by the only wild population of about 100 red wolves.
