UPDATE: Seal Beach, California, Reportedly Plans to Continue Killing Coyotes!
Despite a public outcry, Seal Beach, California, officials have reportedly decided to extend their coyote killing spree for three more weeks. During this time, coyotes will be trapped and gassed to death—a terrifying demise for these sensitive wild animals who seek only to sustain themselves and their families. In addition to being cruel, this lethal initiative is futile because more coyotes will simply move in from outlying areas to use available resources and remaining pack members will breed at accelerated rates, so their numbers will actually increase.Your voice is once again needed!
Coyotes are attracted to areas with dense rodent populations, therefore trash containment, trimming back vegetation, and prohibiting wildlife feeding will encourage them to move on. Please urge the city to cease trapping and instead promote humane control measures, then forward this alert widely!
