Michigan authorities investigate hunters in videos

BESSEMER, Mich. (AP) — Gogebic County prosecutors are investigating two Upper Peninsula hunters for videotaping hunting dogs mauling a coyote and for running down a coyote with a truck before filming and killing it.

MLive.com reports (http://bit.ly/1t61ZDc ) court documents describe videos that one of the men had uploaded to YouTube. They've since been taken down.

A conservation officer recommended in a sworn affidavit that they be charged with a felony for knowingly killing or torturing an animal.

One video showed dogs attacking a dying coyote that was already shot. The man holding the camera says it's going to be a "live action" video as the coyote is heard wailing.

The Humane Society of the United States posted an edited version of the video to protest what it called the "deliberate torture" of the coyote.
