Coyote Bounty Introduced in Parts of Southern Saskatchewan

Some southern Saskatchewan municipalities have re-introduced a 20-dollar bounty for coyotes.

Rural Municipality of Weyburn Reeve Norm McFadden says families are concerned after seeing packs of up to 15 coyotes in the area.

The Saskatchewan government introduced a 20-dollar coyote bounty in 2009, but it wasn’t renewed in 2010 — the same year the province introduced a compensation program for producers who lose livestock to predators.

McFadden says 95 per cent of the feedback has been positive, and he says the program is expected to run until late fall.
