This is an intriguing concept.
An animal-rights group that opposes the use of hunters to cut the deer population in Valley Forge National Historical Park wants officials to consider using coyotes instead.
The group wants Pennsylvania to not rely on guns in the upcoming season, but rather nature to restore balance to the deer population.
Park officials tell The Philadelphia Inquirer the proposal wouldn't work. They say the number of deer has to be cut from an estimated 1,277 to about 175 in the next four years.
Thats a whole lot of dear to get rid of!
Coyotes certainly wouldn't bring the population of deer down to 15, but it'd help cleanse and balance the environment.
We're curious to see if this works. It's the sustainable way of controlling a population . We're always down for sustainability!!!
