    I have heard of this too. I know a guy who knows a brother-in-law of a friend who said someone in the NY AG office released several unscrupulous people into the Marsh-Mc universe who in turn corrupted several people just to satisfy some political aspirations.

    Is it not true that all Erie employees are NRA members?

    Lets not get carried away laughing at this and thinking the insurance companies wouldn’t do it. Unfortunatly, we have seen that corporate leaders can be quite greedy and corrupt. I can see people justifying breaking the law and calling it civil disobediance.

    Who would it hurt to use wild dogs to increase profitability by reducing the dear herd? Some hunters and a few pet owners? On the otherhand if some lives were saved and fewer people were hurt each year in addition to a increase in profit, I can see corporate insurance leaders justifying this kind of illegal covert action.

    If the insurance companies did do it, I also doubt they would have been stupid enough to leave behind tattoos, ear tags or collar as evidence. If one company in Erie stood to increase profit by millions every year, I suppose they could afford pay some Harrisburg burocrat to laugh it up a little.

    I hit a coyote with my car, it did a lot of damage. If I knew to look for a tag, my company could have subrogated the loss.

    Let\’s get real people. Insurance companies stocking coyotes to prevent car accidents is about equal to stocking your house with rats to curb a mouse problem. Driving the roads here in N.E. Pa. we see almost as many coyotes hit by cars as we do deer. Try avoiding a 50 lb. coyote on the highway. Pretty much the same results.

    If you think that an article saying that either the game commision or the insurance co. don\’t have something to do with the HIGH number of coyotes in a short period of time that have showed up in PA and Ohio just happen because of migration will fool people you must think we are stupid. I just hope that on day and it will happen that the people responsible for this will see their day in court. When they start atacking peoples pets because they have desimated all of the small game and food supply then maybe then people will wake up. I hope that is sooner than later. With enough money you can do anything.

    I have hunted this mountain for almost all my life.Haven\’t seen a coyote, This first day of buck season there was one. my cousin shot it. it was huge.. i was on a fourwheeler ride and a few coyotes was chasing a deer and it looked so tired, like it had been running for a while then the coyote ripped its guts out and let it walk its guts out of its stomach.. good thing for the coyote i didn\’t have a gun.. there are definity large numbers of coyotes.. and they didn\’t get there all of a sudden by \”migration..\”.. i can see a company doing this..

    It’s not that the deer aren’t being killed by hunters. The deer are being killed by motor vehicles because they are trapped between the interstates and other roadways. They are not able to roam freely becuase they aren’t always able to cross the roads without being hit. They reproduce more and more and the population increases in a confined area. The transportation agencies need to move the deer instead of them being hit by vehicles. By doing this they won’t have to spend millions on insurance claims. They can just move the deer to another place, like state game lands.

    Will, did you ever try to move deer? I have and it is difficult. I gave them a date and time and when I showed up, they weren’t packed or anything and most of them didn’t even show up, and the ones that did wouldn’t get in the truck. It was a whole mess.

    He was opening a big box w/ ACME on the side. Musta been the ACME insurance company or some such rich city folks working against us. Anyway, then the coyote proceeded to tie a large red rocket to his back and put on roller skates. Upon observation of a road runner’s passing, the coyote proceeded to light the rocket and skedaddled right up Rt 322. If you ask me the game wardens should be arrested.

    Our friend knows a family that lives deep within PA woods, in the mountains, and one day they saw a massive semi-truck broken down on the side of the road. They went over to help the driver and ended up finding the trailer full of coyotes. Of course, as locals, they became furious at man for having them in the first place, and they said he blurted out that he was just doing his job and that Allstate, THE INSURANCE COMPANY…had hired him to transport the coyotes. He did not say where he was going, but the fact that he said Allstate hired him to do this, and they were deep within PA, I swear to you that the insurance companies are clearly denying their illegal actions. After all, it’ll save them money.

    Funny. How about if I actually sat across a table with a trucker who told us he HAULED the things into PA I think like 15 years ago? Before there was a ‘story?’ Either he lied or the insurance companies are lying. I wonder who has the motive…
