Bill, i can see what you're saying in Florida and Georgia,but unless the coyote can swim 24 miles across the Chesapeake at Norfolk or from Atlantic City across the Delaware Bay, then SOMEONE artificially introduced here on the Delmarva Peninsula. The northern part of Delaware where they'd only have to swim a quarter mile across the C&D Canal seems to have yet to even see one. Liz, you need to talk to some livestock people. i've seen a goat pen that held 6 goats and all had been killed without anything being eaten. I've talked to sheep farmers who've had mass slaughters take place in their flocks in the same fashion. Nat Geo won't show you things like that, but ask Patrick on here about similar things with wolves. I do have a question. I see someone mention the "red wolf". I know there's an isolated population on an island off North Carolina,but I thought that DNA testing had determined that the red wolf was nothing more than a hybrid between the eastern gray wolf and the coyote. Am I under the wrong assumption with that??
