Wildlife Conflict Untangled: Episode 003, Coyote Contention in "Red Wolf Country"

The conflict over red wolves escalated in 2013 and 2014 based on coyotes. Why Coyotes? In this episode we begin to explore the relationship between red wolves, coyote hunting, private property and the State of North Carolina. How did the red wolf recovery program go from a divisive issue to a more heated conflict? Learn how coyotes, shootings of red wolves and coyote hunting led to a lawsuit pitting conservation groups (Red Wolf Coalition, Defenders of Wildlife and Animal Welfare Institute), represented by Southern Environmental Law Center, against the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission.
