Regarding the May 1 news story, "Wily coyotes: Coyote extermination programs," let me get this straight. It is necessary to exterminate coyotes to keep the mule deer population safe. The reason we need to keep the mule deer safe is so humans with guns have plenty of mule deer to shoot and kill. We really don't care about the deer, we just want them all with no competition.
I thought hunting was a sport. Would someone please clarify this mass slaughter of animals for money, who, by the way, were here before we were?
