You've never seen a coyote taken like this before.
There are many forms of predator control. For example, avid trappers use numerous kinds of foothold traps and cage traps, some as a casual hobby and some in order to make a living, but have you ever seen a coyote struck down like this?
Take a look at this rare footage and even rarer form of predator control!
As you just saw, the hunter, Casey Shoopman, slowly approaches the coyote on foot then moves to a crawl at eye level with the coyote.
Next thing you know the young coyote is in a full sprint with Shoopman chasing it on foot with the "ironwood." He comes close enough to almost jump on the pup, but the elusive predator changes direction on a dime, so Shoopman resorts to his last option.
Yes, Shoopman throws the stick in a spear-like motion and strikes the coyote square, collects a new fur and saves a fawn's life!
