Western Wednesdays, y’all! Although today we don’t have the most pleasant tale to tell.
Pest and predator control is an essential part of managing a ranch, and coyotes have long fallen into both categories. At the U Ranch near Sterling City, TX at the end of the 19th century, images such as this were common. Nowadays ranches and communities use a number of nonlethal methods for coyote population management whenever possible.
