White-Nosed Coati

White-Nosed Coati

The white-nosed coati is hunted throughout its range for skin and food, but its fur has no value.

The white-nosed coati is hunted throughout its range for skin and food, but its fur has no value.

In the United States, it is occasionally caught in traps set for other species, killed by hunters ostensibly looking for other species, or falls victim to predator control campaigns. It apparently disappeared from the Burro Mountains in New Mexico at about the same time as a coyote (Canis latrans) poisoning campaign. In Arizona, where most of the white-nosed coatis in the United States live, they are subject to year-round hunting.
