    Coyote problems

    Our yard backs up to a wooded area. Our neighborhood is having a growing problem with coyotes. Several dogs and cats have been taken... some right out of the front yard.

    We have a couple of smaller dogs and 5 cats that roam around our yard. Anyone know how to keep these away? Our association does not allow fences. They seem pretty fearless. We have an electric fence but I haven't been able to get close enough to put a collar on any of them.

    Give the coyotes a little time and they will take care of your dog and cat problem for you.

    I would get a bunch of people together and have them revisit this.

    If you live in the city limits of KC call animal control. If you dont, they are fun to hunt.

    Do you not want the coyotes to get the kitties and puppies?

    Re: Coyote problems

    Sounds like your subdivision was built pretty much in their natural area. Unfortunately property lines don't mean anything to them. I can see why your concerned for your pets, that would be awful to lose on that way.

    Do you have any rifles? In many places you can hunt coyotes year round. I think you could also possibly place some traps, though you'd have to be careful to keep your pets out of them.

    Lol. I should have clarified that they are our dogs and cats.

    I can hook you up.

    I would say a couple of these would take care of your coyote problem, and possibly a bad neighbor or two.

    Re: Coyote problems

    Have your neighborhod build a wireless electric fence and set a big pack of bullmastiffs loose in it This should solve both the coyote and the cat problems. Although it will solve the unwanted visitor problem and the wanted visitor and the neighbor problem as well.

    Why is it that whenever a wild animal shows up, the first thing people do is shoot it? Rednecks, rednecks, rednecks...

    Re: Coyote problems

    Coyotes in urban settings are becoming more common and more fearless.
    They just had a segment on it on Nightline last week. (Nightline is a fantastic program).
    I guess a coyote (or plural) attacked a woman in Canada and killed and ate her.
    Its the first known case of a coyote(s) killing a human. So.....be careful.

    Re: Coyote problems

    Depending where you are located and the laws, but I'd be happy to bring a few people down and go on a hunt to try and get rid of as many of them as possible.

    Are you going to drive them down to KC Talladega Nights style?

    Re: Coyote problems

    It is getting to be an issue here in the Twin Cities urban area. I live in Golden Valley and am only about five houses away from Minneapolis and we had a coyote try and nab one of the neighbor dogs. The dog survived but I am not keen on these newly arrived predators. Not much I can do about them legally here in the city. I do wish they would spend more time hunting some of the eight million rabbits in the neighborhood rather than trying to snatch little dogs.

    Re: Coyote problems

    There was a healthy coyote population in the woods behind my home farm, but they were total chicken *****. Never bothered our dog at all, except they would all howl at nights sometimes.

    I'd always thought they were scavengers and almost never attacked other creatures.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
