Kirtland Air Force to set coyote traps
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Kirtland Air Force Base is clamping down on coyotes.

KOAT-TV reports that the Civil Engineer Squadron is teaming up with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to set up live traps around residential areas.

Officials say the move is needed because of a surge in coyotes preying on family pets.

Once caught, officials say the coyotes will be taken away by wildlife services.

Alex Perea, who works at the Kirtland Air Force Credit Union, says coyotes are hunting for jackrabbits around the base both at night and during the day.
