Default coyotes killing deer

This was a rumor going around, But I just had it confirmed from a reliable source.
Here in southern New Jersey we have alot of coyotes now. These coyotes are on the large size, maybe 50lb range. There was a film that was floating around on line, I can't find it now, of a coyote mother feeding here pups with fawns and yearlings. Over 2 1/2 months she pulled a dozen deer back to the den for her pups. There was a coyote killed with in five miles of my home. It had a tag inits ear. The tag had a number, a phone number, and the word Texas.Whwn this phone number was called they had said that the coyote was purchased by a insurance company. Supposely the insurance companies are purchasing coyotes and releasing them in souther Jersey. The Coyotes are killing deer and this is lowering the number of deer and auto collision, which mean lower accident claims for the insurance company. I can't figure out haow the New Jersey division of fish and game can allow this to happen. If one mother was able to kill a dozen deer in about three months, the way coyotes multiple the deer aren't gonna have a chance.
Has anyone heard of this in Jersey, or in any other state?

yes. they also have tagged and released cougars, to controll the coyotes. Then they had to release sasquatches to controll the cougars.

with all the deer gone the turkeys are out of controll, so the dnr dropped tagged rattlesnakes out of thier black helicopters to controll them.

Here is the answer you are looking for.

No matter what hunting camp you go to, you will always find someone that knows someone that said that someone seen this or that.

The truth is - if you knew where the coyote den was at - why didn't you set up there and kill the mother and kill the father and kill the pups and then you wouldn't have all of these problems.

This same story has been all through Pennsylvania and Ohio and the other states. Is it true? Probably, did your friend see it in your backyard - probably not. Coyotes are a very private animal and do not like human intervention.

They will visit your area very late at night and probably doesn't go out of the den very much during the day time.

Yotes are'nt gonna reduce a healthy herd.In a situation where the deer excede the carry capacity, resulting in sick, and malnourished deer, then they will get some kills. They'll get some in deep snow areas as well.

Rumor is the word! NO ONE ever offers any proof of the conspiracy stockings other then "I heard from ........ ". Like any doing it secretively would put a tag with contact info on the animal.

Buckeye -"text talk" is very hard to read for the many who do not do it. And many will simply skip over it. Just my opinion.

Can you post some of those photos? Just to see the coyote dragging the deer. Makes me think I need to shoot more coyotes to help the deer.

Looks like Buckeye is practicing his text message abbreviations for the new phone Santa is going to bring him.
