Episode 2: Coyote Ugly. Coyote derbies -- organized coyote hunts with cash prizes for various categories, like most kills -- are still a big thing in the West. California passed a ban on them last year (although coyote hunts are still perfectly legal, you can no longer win prizes in them), and wildlife activists are pushing for a similar ban in Nevada. But wildlife management experts say while people may have moral issues with the hunts, from a scientific perspective they're causing no harm to the coyotes. We bring you all sides of the story in our second episode.
