Gov. Noem takes flak over 'we need to kill more coyotes' tweet

While it might have been a hit among roadrunners, very few of Kristi Noem's Twitter followers appreciated a recent tweet in which she advocated for killing coyotes.

The tweet, sent just after 8 a.m. Friday morning, shows Noem standing next to Sen. Troy Heinert, D-Mission, who is wearing a coyote fur coat.

"We need to kill more coyotes so everyone can have a coat like Senator Heinert's," Noem said in the tweet. "How cool is this?!?"

Very few of the 140-plus replies thought it was cool, with people saying they found the tweet "disgusting," "terrible" and "wrong on so many levels."
