Of the fawns which didn't survive summer in the northern region, 79 percent were killed by predators. Eleven fawns were taken by unknown predators, nine were killed by black bears, and coyotes and bobcats each killed six fawns. The eastern farmland region showed a different leading cause of fawn death.

Coyotes topped the charts as the dominant predator with eight fawn kills, and four fawns died from unknown predators. One fawn each was taken by a bear, bobcat, and a domestic dog.
