Howling Success

Rifle shot out-foxes coyote which had a taste for beef

(Continued)

Somerset —

Neighbors in the Hail Knob area could hear occasional howling. It is not unusual for coyotes to howl at night, especially during the fall when family groups break up, and in late winter when coyotes pair up and mate.
Distinctive in appearance, coyotes have pointed noses, pointed ears that always stand erect, and fluffy tails, typically held low.
Males can weigh of to 50 pounds, but most coyotes are smaller. Adams said the coyote he killed on Pitman Creek last Monday weighed 40 pounds.
Coyotes are not protected. The animals may be taken year-round by licensed hunters or trapped for furs during winter.
