Coyote Killed In Pittsburgh Neighborhood

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Game commission officials say a Pittsburgh man didn’t violate any regulations when he shot and killed a coyote inside the city limits.

Joe Martinelli Jr. says he killed the eastern coyote late Sunday night outside his home in the Mount Washington neighborhood. He says coyotes have been harassing pets in the area.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission’s Tom Fazi says with few exceptions the coyote hunting season never closes. And while Pittsburgh law prohibits hunting in city parks, it is permitted on private property.
