Ky. issues rules on hunting coyotes at night

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources has issued new rules that allow the hunting of coyotes at night year round.

The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/16vsiqE) reports the new regulations require that hunters use shotguns and limit using lights or night vision equipment to Feb. 1 through May 31.

State officials say coyotes have expanded their range and fill the ecological function of wolves, which are extinct in Kentucky.

The animals are in every county in the state and there's no limit on the number that can be killed.
