A subcommittee of Prince Edward County Council disagrees with the bounty being considered for coyotes and wolves.
The Agriculture Advisory Committee passed a motion opposing, in principle, the compensation program, which would pay hunters 100 dollars a pelt. . It then recommended a compensation program, using a licenced trapper, to remove problem coyotes and wolves, at a maximum cost of ten-thousand dollars a year.
The committee will also ask council to encourage the Prince Edward Stewardship Council to work with community stakeholders to educate the public on how to co-exist with the animals.
