^ I can agree. I'm sure it happens and when money is to be made, there are those that will be willing to chance it for profit. Coyotes were on the increase in NC and I'm sure some made it here in not so natural ways. However, coyotes were naturally expanding at the same time and I have heard a biologist state that coyotes would likely be here in the numbers they are today, fox pens or not. That leads to another note, coyotes are now dime a dozen in many places. The price for a live coyote has been cut nearly in half from $150 to $75 or less, with this drop in price illegal importation is less profitable and less attractive to those unscrupulous people that like to make a quick dollar.
