SHAMEFUL LOW-LIFE BARBARIC BASTARD'S!!! How dare they allow this poor, already TERRORIZED coyote to be TORTURTED even further than what he, or she had so BRUTALLY already been subject to!!! They're the very worst of sub-humans, & are the one's that give the meaning of humanity a bad & VILE name!!! I only wish this horrifically abused animal could come back to HAUNT the SADISTIC POS that were involved in ANY part of this unforgivable act of CRUELTY for the rest of their miserable rotten to...

I only wish this horrifically abused animal could come back to HAUNT the SADISTIC POS that were involved in ANY part of this unforgivable act of CRUELTY for the rest of their miserable rotten to the core lives. These kinds of so called humans are the GARBAGE HEAP of society that make up the worst part of planet. Something MUST...something just has to be done in the way of severe PUNISHMENT against those disconnected PATHETIC MORON'S:-( Calling for JUSTICE!!!!!!!

I sent my letter to the DEC. I hope they are proud of themselves for standing around and doing nothing while an animal suffered needlessly because of some idiot's need to kill something. We live with coyotes out here all the time, a heck of a lot more of them than they have there.

This is shameful. The DEC is a joke. Men who find this sporting and exciting are the same men that sneak into their daughters bedrooms every night. If our government supports this, then post this picture and pictures like this and much worse on their websites. Then let's see how the tax payers feel. If you don't want the general public to see it YOU KNOW IT'S WRONG!! Get off you asses and do something.

This is no different than the atrocities that used to happen during the barbaric foxhunting in the UK. Thank goodness eventually decency prevailed and this practice is now illegal. When is the US going to join civilisation and stop this savagery? The inaction of the DEC officers in watching and obviously condoning this abominable cruelty is beyond belief. We live in an evil, evil world.

Just looking at that poor injured frightened animal makes me feel sick to know that no one tried to help him. Why wasn't animal control called. The DEC officers decided to let him die a horrible painful death. Shame on everyone involved. God didn't intend for human beings to be so heartless.

They are NOT human beings, Sandra, they don't even deserve the honor of being called animals, as for the onlookers, they are nothing but worms!

Reply is too long for the entire content...con't. "indicated that the town leash law may have been violated.
While an unpleasant task, when a wild animal is injured in this fashion
and finds its way to a well populated area, euthanizing the animal
quickly is often the most humane and appropriate act. Doing so in a
remote location is done in an effort to be sensitive to the members of
the public who gathered at the location. "

This animal was obviously not aggressive but aggressed. The most humane thing would have been to protect & save him.

Shooting it, then using DOGS. Wow such brave men. And I thought baseball, soccer,football, etc., etc. were sports. But of killing animals for fun, thrill of the kill? Leave it to man, that old Macho, beat the chest thing. Idiots!!

I contacted the New York State DEC for verification of this story and received the following clarification:

"This incident did take place over six years ago, in Wayne County, New York.

On March 8, 2007, an environmental conservation officer responded to a complaint about an injured coyote in the town of Macedon. Hunters had shot a coyote and their dogs had chased it to a shopping plaza. The DEC officer arrived on the scene, safely secured the injured animal and euthanized it in a nearby, secluded area. This animal was not, as some reports have indicated, subjected to further attack by the hunters' dogs.

Due to the extent of injuries to the coyote, DEC determined it needed to be euthanized. This was carried out by a trained environmental conservation officer.

While an unpleasant task, when a wild animal is injured in this fashion and finds its way to a well populated area, euthanizing the animal quickly is often the most humane and appropriate act."

I just wrote the DEC asking them to change their policies and protect the wildlife from torture. I am relived to hear that an officer came and "cared" for the coyote and that it was not subject to more torture. I really hope what they told you was true. I still feel awful for the trauma that the coyote had to go through and hope that the DEC is truly doing what is best for each animal in every situation and not just what is easy or cheapest. Thank you for the update.

I don't know if I believe them and my better judgement tells me that after the other story came out, this story is a CYA story. I lived in Monterey, CA and went shopping at a shopping center in Seaside, CA, right off of the highway , across from the beach. With stores like Starbucks, Bagelbakery, Jamba Juice and Petco, Target, Borders, etc . One morning going to go get coffee, all traffic in the parking lot stopped, and before my eyes, a big brown bear cub was walking through our lot like...

I don't know if I believe them and my better judgement tells me that after the other story came out, this story is a CYA story. I lived in Monterey, CA and went shopping at a shopping center in Seaside, CA, right off of the highway , across from the beach. With stores like Starbucks, Bagelbakery, Jamba Juice and Petco, Target, Borders, etc . One morning going to go get coffee, all traffic in the parking lot stopped, and before my eyes, a big brown bear cub was walking through our lot like he had all the time in the world. The police showed up just to make sure everyone stayed safe. Including the bear, and after about 45 min. The bear made his way to Borders and sat against the wall and he looked like he was resting. The Humane Shelter and Wildlife Control showed up and coaxed him into the trailor and he was relocated. Well it was the talk of the shopping center for quite a while and everyone was just concerned about his welfare and keeping him safe. The shopping center put a sign up at all of the entrances with the image of a bear, saying Bear Crossing. It is still up. The bear came from the closed land area that used to be Fort Ord of Marina, CA. There is a lot of wild life there, bears, mountain lions, coyotes ,wildcats, fox, you name it but no wolves. They were pretty much eradicated out of CA many years ago , maybe way up north. But wildlife and man co-exist pretty much without incident. Although up near Palo Alto, near Stanford, they have had to shoot a couple of bears- had to?-- and shoot a mountain lion that was too close to a neighborhood. I wonder who was at fault? I know!
