Resumen

We present results about the defecation rate of white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus mexicanus) in captivity in the state of Puebla; To obtain this rate for specific deer subspecies is important to estimate the density and to determine hunting rate; The defecation rate was 17 ± 4; but it varies from 8 to 25; In order to reduce possible overexploitation of deer; we suggest to use the maximum estimation of defecation rate to estimate population density;
