(Churubusco resident Tony Bartlett hunts coyotes by horseback in and around Whitley County. Bartlett is a part of the group of hunters called “Coyotes for Charities” that have donated more than $24,000 to the American Cancer Society in nine years. For more information about the charity or hunting coyotes on your property, contact Bartlett at 260-413-2057.)
The “Coyotes for Charity” hunters from Fulton, Grant, Howard, Miami, Wabash, and Whitley Counties have harvested 193 coyotes this season. The pelts are prepared by Larry Frank and shipped to North American Fur Auctions in Toronto, Canada.
This is the ninth year for “Coyotes for Charity,” who started in 2004 with four hunters to 2012 with over 100 hunters. All money raised is matched by the Square D. Foundation through the Relay for Life Campaign and donated to the American Cancer Society.
The estimated total sales and company match for this season is $5,400 with over $24,000 donated since the group’s inception. Anyone interested in donating pelts or money or for more information regarding the group can call Tony Bartlett at 413-2057.
(These hunters have harvested over 190 coyotes in Northeast Indiana this year. The money from the pelts is donated to the American Cancer Society. Over $24,000 has been donated since the group’s inception nine years ago.)
