Letter: Killing coyotes is trophy hunting

Dear editor:

Further to your story, "Hunter says hobby is legal, needed," (March 4), about coyote hunters in NOTL:

They do it for sport? It would only be a sport if the coyotes could fire back.  

Nice hobby. There are much more positive hobbies than just killing for the fun of it.

The practice of killing an animal simply to show off its head and pelt or sell it for profit is nothing but trophy hunting.

Most of the general public worldwide is against this. The comment about people "calling this group thugs" is an accurate one.
