Salina considers loosening firearms regulations to allow trapper to hunt coyotes on Scottsdale Circle
Laurie Turton lost a cat to a coyote attack in February. Now, she and her neighbors are asking the town of Salina for help so that her children and others in the Scottsdale Farms tract will be safe from future attacks. Neighbors in the subdivision have approached the town board to request that the town relax its regulations pertaining to the use of firearms so that they may hire a wildlife control agent to dispose of coyotes seen in their neighborhood. A public hearing was held on the matter at the board’s regular meeting Monday, April 9.
