DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - Davenport officials are considering whether to change the city’s hunting ordinance to let residents defend their properties against coyotes.

The Quad-City Times reports (http://bit.ly/1rH4r0e ) the City Council met Wednesday and discussed the issue. One resident said he wants to use his 12-gauge shotgun to protect his family and livestock from a pack of coyotes near his property.

The city currently has an ordinance that allows a sanctioned bow hunt of deer. One alderman recommended an organized hunt involving paid help. Another alderman was opposed to letting people carry shotguns within city limits.

The issue will be discussed again at a City Council meeting on Oct. 8.
