Coyote Carcasses Popping Up on U of I Campus

Subscribe to 103.5 KISS FM on

Students at the University of Idaho woke up to some very peculiar gifts on their doorsteps.

Dead coyotes.

Police in Moscow are investigating who is leaving dead coyote carcasses, and why they’re doing it, on the doorsteps of Greek houses near the University of Idaho campus. So far, four separate reports have been reported of carcass dumping. Even more bizarre, this isn’t the first time something like this has come up in 2017.

In January, a man left a dead animal on the front porch of a sorority house near U of I. He was caught by police, and admitted he pulled the stunt after a dare.

As far as the most current incidents, Moscow police have no suspects. Captain Tyson Barrett of Moscow PD says that the event in January and the current outbreak are not related.

Before you ask, it is a misdemeanor to leave an animal carcass near a house, stream, or highway in the state of Idaho. You can face up to a $100 fine if caught and convicted of the crime. While it may seem bizarre, that law is far from the most odd in Idaho. Here’s some actual laws that still exist here in 2017:

  • (Idaho) It is illegal to ride a merry-go-round on a Sunday
  • (Boise) Residents may not fish from a giraffe’s back
  • (Eagle) Bicycles are not allowed on tennis court
  • (Pocatello) A person may not be seen in public without a smile on their face

Any citizens with information about the coyote incidents are being asked to call Moscow PD at 883-7058.
