Attention Trappers and Hunters Coyote Teeth Needed

(UNDATED) – As part of ongoing research with Purdue University, the Department of Natural Resources needs teeth from coyotes hunted or trapped during the regulated season.


Teeth are needed from 30 Indiana counties: Benton, Brown, Carroll, Clark, Crawford, DeKalb, Elkhart, Floyd, Fountain, Greene, Harrison, Jackson, Jasper, Jefferson, LaGrange, Lawrence, Martin, Monroe, Montgomery, Morgan, Newton, Noble, Orange, Owen, Perry, St. Joseph, Steuben, Tippecanoe, Warren, Washington, and White.

Officials need several hundred coyote teeth to make this project successful.

You can request teeth envelopes and an instruction sheet by emailing or calling 812-822-3304.
