Coyotes are major predator to white-tailed deer across eastern park of North America. Coyotes are relatively recent arrival in the eastern North America, appearing first in the region in noticeable numbers in the 1970s. Coyotes mostly prey on white tail deer in the early month of their lives. Coyotes originated from the west but have slow moved to the east. Even at their high levels reported appose no threat to the deer population. Even know on average that one out of two deer survive the first 3 month of their lives. Predation for coyotes, black bears and bobcat have not taken any effect on stabilize deer population. In the end I give this article 5/5.
