(GRAPHIC) Video: Coyotes Take Down Deer on Trail Cam


(GRAPHIC) Video: Coyotes Take Down Deer on Trail Cam

For a state that declared open war on coyotes and wild hogs in April 2012, there’s now even clearer evidence why they did.

A video taken by a trail camera from South Carolina surfaced this week that shows just why the government got involved to put an end to the coyote nuisance—two coyotes are seen taking down an apparently healthy six-point whitetail.

With an explosion of coyotes and wild hogs in South Carolina in recent years, the House of Representatives passed a bill declaring open war on dogs and hogs, even allowing night shooting to help cut down on numbers. According to Rep. Mike Pitts, it’s not so much about the hunting tradition as protecting the state’s resources.

    I saw this same video last year, nothing new here. Where I I live I have coyotes coming around all the time., I live in the desert, and the coyotes don’t bother me in fact they help keep the rodent population down, along with the rattlesnakes. OH and the rattlers don’t bother me either.

    How do you expect a deer to be killed by coyotes? Killer Clowns put there victims in cocoons and drank them down with a straw. Does this sound better?

    It is man’s responsibility to step in and balance the scales when a particular animal population gets out of control. More people used to hunt the coyotes than in the recent past and we have a large population of coyotes. Hunters, the ultimate conservationalists, are meant to control the situtation. Look at the hunting of Boa’s in Florida as an example. These snakes don’t have any natural predators, mostly because they were placed into the environment by humans and weren’t native to the area.
