In my home state of Michigan one of our biggest fawn killers are coyotes. I was wondering, what other kinds of predators may also target fawns?


Research has clearly shown that coyotes, bobcats, and black bears can have a significant impact on fawn survival rates.

Wolves certainly can have a big impact on fawn survival. It’s good management to work toward finding a balance between predators and prey species.
