Fish and Wildlife Officers seeking those responsible for dumping coyote carcasses

 Lethbridge Fish and Wildlife 

On March 2, 2016, the Lethbridge Fish and Wildlife Office received a complaint regarding a multitude of coyote carcasses. Officers responded and located approximately 150 coyote carcasses disposed of on the public land surrounding the Milk River Ridge Reservoir. The carcasses were found on the south west side of the reservoir.

Fish and Wildlife Officers are asking for the public’s help to locate the individuals responsible. A charge of improper disposal of waste on public land would apply.

An Alberta resident may hunt (but not trap) coyotes without a licence year-round on land to which he or she has the right of access, except on unoccupied forested public lands, where hunting is only permitted during the hunting season. The season for trapping coyotes in this area is October 1 to February 28.

If you have any information please call the Lethbridge Fish and Wildlife Office at 1-403-381-5266 or the Report A Poacher line at 1-800-642-3800. Callers can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward.
