Oldiron_79: If you want to reduce deer you probably want a bigger predator like wolves or cougars.
boinkingbill: Coyotes are killing and eating those nasty, annoying little yappy dogs?I'm okay with this.
redmid17: redmid17: Stone Meadow: Slappajo: Stone Meadow: In California "coyote season" starts at 12:01AM on January first and goes to midnight on 21 December. No tag. No bag limit.Was there ever a "reintroduction" effort? The experience I was talking about was that they were all but absent in the area but it was decided to reintroduce them and restrictions were put on killing them. Now it's pretty much shoot 'em if you see 'em.No, but now you have me curious...was there a formal coyote reintroduction effort in Iowa?If I remember correctly, there wasn't really one. With the switch of a lot of forest to agricultural use, decline in larger predators, and increase in food supply they pretty just migrated from the West. Apparently they were a lot less common in the eastern part of the US before the 1900s.Old Times article on it: http://www.nytimes.com/1981/03/03/science/coyotes-arrive-in-the-north e ast-after-an-evolutionary-trek-across-the.html
big pig peaches: Silentbob768768: There's mountain lions too but not very many it seemsNJ historically had cougars, grizzly bears, wolves, even jaguars I've heard. They were wiped out by man. The northeast was mostly forest once, and probably had every large predator present in North America.With hunting less popular than ever it makes sense that anything that can adapt to suburban /urban areas will come back, and coyotes do quite well in other urban parts of the country. Personally, their howls would be a welcome sound.
Silentbob768768: We used to have coyotes up in north jersey at least but they gradually disappeared with commercial and residential development.
ArcadianRefugee: Oldiron_79: If you want to reduce deer you probably want a bigger predator like wolves or cougars.Why not just expand hunting season?
At last a brewing scandal which Governor Chris Christie had nothing to do with.
