KOSCIUSKO COUNTY — The Coyotes for Charity hunters from Miami, Wabash, Fulton, Kosciusko, Grant, Howard, Marshall, Carroll, Cass and Huntington counties have harvested 366 coyotes this past season. The coyote pelts were prepared for auction by Larry Frank, Macy, and Bo Bodenheimer, North Webster. Bodenheimer is a U.S. receiving agent for North American Fur Auctions in Toronto, Canada, where the pelts were sent to be sold.
This is the 13th year for Coyotes for Charity, which started in 2004 with four hunters harvesting five coyotes to 2016 with more than 135 hunters harvesting 366 coyotes.
Money raised is matched by the Square D Foundation through the Relay for Life campaign and also matched by a generous Miami County farming resident. All money raised is donated to the American Cancer Society.
They appreciate the landowners and farmers for the opportunity to hunt. This will make their total harvest of 2,368 coyotes during the 13 years and more than $64,848 given to the American Cancer Society.
