Howlin’ At The Moon: Vermont’s Coyotes

Robert F. Bukaty
There are an estimated 4,500 to 8,000 Eastern Coyotes living in Vermont.

Some people love to hear the howl of the coyote in the wild. Others chill at the sound of it, fearing that their livestock and pets might be at risk.

Having first arrived in Vermont in the 1940s, there are as many as 8,000 Eastern Coyotes in the state.

UVM Professor Jed Murdoch and State Wildlife Biologist Chris Bernier discuss the role coyotes play in our ecosystem and how the state manages the coyote population.

Also on the program, the National Rural Electric Cooperatives Association’s  lobbying efforts seem to be at odds with Vermont’s local electric co-ops. Dave Hallquist, CEO of Vermont Electric Cooperative, explains the two points of view.

Broadcast live on Wednesday, October 15 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
