    Description

    Varmint control has a long history in the area, going back at least to the 18th century. More than 125 years of systematic varmint control in Cochise County has had mixed success. Two large predators, the grizzly bear and the Mexican wolf, were eliminated from the area. Coyotes have maintained their numbers despite hundreds killed annually. While organized government efforts have played a major role, individual efforts by hunters, farmers, homeowners, and others have been far more significant.
