Coyotes on barrier islands

The return of abundant wildlife has brought with it predators. Red-tail hawks and eagles are now common on the islands. Coyotes are also establishing themselves.

As summer tourist season approaches, Sullivan’s Island is looking to fix its coyote problem. Town Council has authorized the town’s Department of Public Safety to hire a private company to trap coyotes. The available budget for the project is $25,000, according to Mayor Mike Perkis.
