Wirecutters Get Rich Quick Dream Come True

He just has to travel to Pennsylvania to do it.

Monroe/Pike representative hopes $25 bounty will knock down coyote overpopulation

Rep. Mike Peifer believes northeastern Pennsylvania has become "infested" with coyotes that are preying on everything from house cats to deer.

Peifer, R-139, is calling on Pennsylvania hunters to help cull the population. He's introduced legislation that would allow the state Game Commission to offer $25 for each coyote killed.

The House is set to vote on the bill today.

The bill wouldn't require the Game Commission to implement the incentive, but it would give it the flexibility to do so in areas where coyotes are a problem, Peifer said. State law already allows for coyote hunting year-round.

"We're just trying to control this population a little bit," he said. "Let's give (hunters) an incentive to hunt coyotes."

Peifer says the coyote problem first hit home on a bear hunting trip last year, when his party shot four coyotes. Since then, his constituents have been sharing their coyote stories with him.

"I can't tell you how many people come up to me and say, 'It's about time somebody did something,'" he said.

That screeching sound you will be hearing is going to be Wirecutter burning out in his driveway on his way out of town.
