Hunter volunteers to help woman with coyote issue

HUNTING — When the Washington Fish and Wildlfie Department enforcement officer in Pend Oreille County received a call from a woman distressed about coyotes frequenting her yard, he had a cost-effective solution:   A hunter.

Officer Severin Erickson responded to the coyote complaint in Usk last week and learned the woman was afraid to let her animals out of the house because a pack of coyotes was visiting her home almost every morning and evening.

Her husband was out of state working and she was scared to shoot a firearm.

Erickson contacted a certified master hunter who was happy to hunt the coyotes for the lady starting the next day, Erickson reported.  The woman was very thankful for the help, WDFW officials said.
