Could be, supposedly about 100 roaming around somewhere
You just might be right. When I read your post I went searching. One of the things I found was a $2,500 reward for information about who may have killed a couple in NC. If that is a Red Wold, it's a federally protected endangered species, and killing it could land one in a whole bunch of trouble.

Up in Habersham County, especially on the Soque, there are a few common statements you should know.

1) What happens in Habersham, stays in Habersham.

2) Kill it, Bury it, Shut up.

Might be a little late for that, since it's posted on the World Wide Web.

OK, I can understand the need to cull urban dwelling Coyotes. But this guy is living up in the mountains where wild critters are suppose to be! Why on earth would you want to kill it if it is not causing any problems? Also, if this is by chance a rare Red Wolf, then killing it would be a real shame!

I don't see the big deal with some coyotes up in the mountains. We all gotta share the same planet. Besides, he doesn't look that dangerous.

Obviously the deer care. Studies have shown, yes in Georgia, that coyotes are the result of over 50% fawn mortality every year. The yotes also harvest a high percentage of turkeys. Lets not even start about the candy, your pets.

A red wolf would be one thing. But a coyote....

Clark, coyotes are not native to Georgia. They are killing machines and will put a hurting on fawns, turkeys and other critters we like to chase. No yote gets a pass from me.

You will be hard pressed to convince me that we have a deer shortage here in Georgia due to Coyotes! How many deer can you kill on a tag in Georgia; 10 or has it gone up even higher since the last time I checked?

PS: and they may not be an original native, but they are now!

I'm with Buck, I don't get why the coyote should be eradicated out of wild areas. What would happen to our membership if we did away with every deer and turkey slayer?
Too, rainbow and brown trout are not native. Should we do away with them as well?
