Coyote Control Incentive Program

Coyote Control Incentive Program

Vulcan County Agricultural Services is offering a new program for the 2014 year.  Due to the rising population of coyotes in the county the past few years, we will be initiating a Coyote Control Incentive Program (CCIP) for the months of January, February, and March of this year.  Our goal is to lower the coyote population to normal levels and reduce the risk of coyote predation on livestock, wildlife, and pets.  To be eligible to participate in this program you must be a resident of Vulcan County.  Compensation will be set at $15.00/coyote, one third of the left ear will be docked for identification purposes with the remainder of the carcass returned to the eligible person.  Only coyotes within Vulcan County boundaries will be eligible for the incentive payment.  All participants in the program are responsible for obtaining proper licensing and permission as well as following all established regulations with respect to hunting of coyotes.  Participation in this program does not afford any person special privileges or exemptions from any regulations. We will be operating this program on Monday of each week until the end of March.  Agricultural Services will be limiting the number of coyotes brought in and will be reviewing this program on an annual basis.  For more information on this program please call the Director of Agriculture at 403-485-3103.
