USDA’s Wildlife Services Killed 4 Million Animals in 2013

Published 06/16/14

The more than 4 million animals shot, poisoned, snared, or trapped by the Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services in fiscal year 2013 included 75,326 coyotes, 866 bobcats, 528 river otters, 3,700 foxes, 12,186 prairie dogs, 973 red-tailed hawks, 419 black bears, and at least three eagles, golden and bald. However, there’s little data showing the cause for each killing, the methods used, and the reasons behind mistakes that lead to massive kills of animals that aren’t targeted.
