Princeton Considers Culling Coyotes

Princeton officials are considering whether to use licensed hunters and trappers to reduce the growing population of coyotes and foxes in the Ivy league town.

The number of complaints has been on the rise.

Animal control officer Mark Johnson tells The Times of Trenton people have been chased and a dog and a couple of cats were killed by coyotes.

Johnson says sharpshooters would likely be sent to certain wooded areas and fields to shoot and kill the coyotes.

Princeton uses a similar method to control the deer population.

The Animal Control Advisory Committee plans to meet Thursday in hopes of making a recommendation to the town council.
