Feral pigs are not native to PA, so should we openly accept them as well?

It was presumed but never admitted that the PGC introduced them covertly to control the Deer Population.


Coyotes were definitely here in the 90's. They arrived in the late 70's or early 80's. They're population is definitely higher now, but they were here, and it was well known.

I don't believe for a second that the PGC introduced coyotes. We fall perfectly in their natural expansion timeline. If they were introduced, then its a massive conspiracy including a half dozen other states as well as Canada.

Would find it far more likely that some third party introduced them covertly to a large number of areas, rather than the public wildlife agencies of all of those states and countries. To be sure, I'm only saying that is more of a possibility, not that it's likely. My gut says they arrived quite naturally as advertised.

I know of the tagged incident you are talking about. It was NOT planted by the PGC. Rather, it had been captured, locally, by the PGC, tagged, and released for study. You can blame them for not killing every animal they catch. But ultimately, its only a handful of animals that they caught and released. If your ultimate goal is to control them, then you gain far more by first understanding how they live in our environment before coming up with any sort of control plan.

I spent many freezing cold nights hunting coyotes. They have great instincts, very intelligent, by far a top notch predator. I would consider them native due to the fact that they came here naturally, but they need to be managed! They are destroying the small game population.

I think the PGC should promote coyote hunting. It is a very challenging sport!
