Comments open on coyote hunting in red wolf territory

Written by 

out redwolfComments are open regarding a proposed prohibition on coyote hunting in a five-county area in northeastern North Carolina. The area is home to the world’s only native red wolf population, which look similar to coyotes — posing a dangerous case of mistaken identity.
