Your dealing with two road blocks when it comes to exotic and invasive species control or eradication.
First and the toughest is Apathy. The Second is timing, the latter is the main reason why the last state sponsored hunt was a complete failure IMHO. Like all exotic/invasive species are concerned virtually nothing the state or citizens can do to control,eradicate other than let the species wipe out the food source and die off or move on elsewhere. The latter does nothing to solve the problem. When any and all E/I species show up at my home in the near future, including coyotes I will make sure they assume room temp due to lead poisoning shortly after discovery.
