Would you kill a wasp or bee that had just stung you? Would you think twice about killing it? bury a roach after you stepped on him, or bury a rat or mouse you caught in a mouse trap? Sometimes Prejudice can take weird forms... Wildlife management sometimes involves reducing numbers of certain living things, so other living things get a better chance at life. Taking out a coyote when the opportunity arises really is no different than the above examples, only the living form looks more like a dog...Sometimes this causes psychological problems for Dog-lovers...BTW Coyotes will eat a dog too.
