Another reason for coyote bounties - to protect foxes

According to the author of this account, the proliferation of coyotes threatens the native fox population.

On the other hand, foxes are not universally admired. SOme years ago, my grandmother (now deceased), while living alone in her 80s, decided one day that she heard a fox in with her chickens, so she took down Grandpa's shotgun, walked up the hill, and shot what turned out to be an orange cat.
