Latest Coywolf Stories
Coyotes are a major predator of white-tailed deer across the East, especially fawns born each spring, but wildlife managers nonetheless are able to stabilize and even grow deer herds, according to researchers in Penn State's College of Agricultural Sciences.
New evidence published in Thursday’s edition of the Canadian Journal of Zoology suggests that, contrary to popular belief, coyotes are capable of taking down and devouring an adult moose.
The US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) announced that the nation’s gray wolf population has recovered to the point that it can safely be removed from the threatened and endangered species list.
