State Certified Wildlife Operator and Predator Hunter
Wildlife Disease Research
we took 12 coyotes, 6 male and 6 female off of this very large Newton County Cattle Farm
**** State Certified, Licensed and Insured****
"Licensed thru the ATF to Remove Beaver Dams. Beaver ponds hold back water which is the Primary Breeding Area for Zika and West Nile Virus carrying Mosquitoes"
"Did you know that the Modern equipment that Wildlife Operators use in the field today have been thru extensive testing by Federal and State Agencies? 1.2 Million dollars was spent on a Equipment Testing Program to Ensure that the Methods and Equipment used today are not only Humane as possible to Wildlife, Livestock and Domestic Animals but also safe to the General public."

Wild canines carry many diseases communicable to pets and Humans. If you allow your dog to roam at will and he comes upon a coyote scat, he will roll in it. Coyotes have parasites in their intestines that lay eggs. These eggs are then passed with the scat. If your dog rolls in the scat, the eggs will stick to it's coat and he will bring them home. Then you or your kids will pet the dog transferring the live eggs to your hands, nose, mouth. These are eggs of two different types of tapeworms called Taneia and Echinococcosis or Hydatid Tapeworm.Once inside a human host, these live eggs target the brain, lungs and liver.****I am providing this information because nearly all pet owners are ignorant of these life threatening diseases.****
Cystic echinocccosis (CE), also known as hydatid disease, is caused by infection with the larval stage of Echinococcus granulosus, a ~2-7 millimeter long tapeworm found in dogs (definitive host) and sheep, cattle, goats, and pigs (intermediate hosts). Although most infections in humans are asymptomatic, CE causes harmful, slowly enlarging cysts in the liver, lungs, and other organs that often grow unnoticed and neglected for years.
Alveolar echinococcosis (AE) disease is caused by infection with the larval stage of Echinococcus multilocularis, a ~1-4 millimeter long tapeworm found in foxes, coyotes, and dogs (definitive hosts). Small rodents are intermediate hosts for E. multilocularis. Cases of AE in animals in endemic areas are relatively common. AE poses a much greater health threat to people than CE, causing parasitic tumors that can form in the liver, lungs, brain, and other organs. If left untreated, AE can be fatal.
"Coyotes and other wild canines should be handled very carefully after capture to prevent transmission of the eggs and therefore possibly the disease to the handler."
