Update on April 17, 2013
Spoke with representative in the DEC -- they confirmed this story to be true and accurate, but apparently it occurred a while ago. This makes no difference to us---as New York State has not changed their policy regarding the cruel, inhumane, and brutal way coyotes are handled and allowed to be abused and hounded to death by dogs. The DEC does not feel that any laws were broken and therefore will continue as always -- so keep your letters and phone calls coming --- matters not that this didn't happen yesterday --- what matters is they need to change their policies regarding coyotes and other wildlife.
This little guy's suffering did not go in vain --- we are all seeking justice for him, even a little later down the road!
