The FBI is investigating alleged threats made against a coyote trapper in west suburban Wheaton.The city hired Rob Erickson in the spring to cull coyotes. After the city's contract that contained Erickson's phone number and e-mail address was made public, Erickson says he started to receive threats.

FBI and police are now looking into unnamed animal rights activists. So far -- investigators say -- no specific person or group has been identified as delivering the threats.
