The Red Rock Hounds is a group in northern Nevada that employs unique tactics in dealing with troublesome coyotes in rural areas. Our reporter Sarah Parks joined the group on an early Sunday morning to learn more about the hunt.
A horn blares out in the early morning and more than twenty black and brown spotted hounds bellow in response. Half a dozen horses and riders fall in with the howling dogs, weaving through the tall sagebrush in Rancho Haven, a small community 45 minutes north of Reno. It’s the beginning of what’s called a fox hunt.
