Coyote trouble.

Postby Joe Malinowski » Thu Oct 29, 2009 5:17 am

Coyotes are all over but they seem to be getting a bit too close for comfort. I have heard them yelping close by the past couple of weeks, this morning at 5am I let my 3 dogs out as I do every day. About 10 feet off the deck they froze and began to growl, when I opened the door they quickly retreated to the door, then the yelping began. The back house spotlight was on and I could make out 3 pairs of eyes not 50 yards from my house. By the time the 12 gauge was out they had retreated. Too close for comfort. Yesterday about 20 miles from here a 4 month old puppy was attacked and killed in broad daylight by a coyote. They sure seem to be over populated up here in the Northeast.

They got about 15 of my neighbors sheep, cows and goats. They killed a few of the coyotes. On full moons they are everywhere, all you hear are yelping, howling, animals shrieking and gun shots. I was lucky when I had sheep, good fencing and secure buildings kept them out. Out in the fields they will walk by us a 150 feet away in broad daylight. :evil:

Heck we have em here in the big city.

I saw one with a bad limp on my way to work one day in the YMCA field. Called DEM and went to see if I could see where it went. The woman at the business nearby said it was around and didn't bother anyone and was very indignant that I would have called the authorities on the animal (they would kill it, she said). I think the parents of the youngsters at the Y daycare would think differently about a coyote in the same field their children play in. Two days later I saw it walking (limping) along a busy road in the daylight.

In Maine there is no season and you can shoot em at night.

:{_}: :{_}: :{_}: The paddock where I keep the horses is fenced with a 3 rail wood fence with horse wire enclosing it. To keep the horses from pushing on the fence to get that greener grass on the other side I put a hot wire around the top and bottom. I heard a lot of noise down there a while back and saw a coyote with one of my chickens in its mouth. When I yelled it took off for the hole it dug under the fence. Problem was everytime it tried to get its body through the hole under the fence it got zapped. Then it tried to jump over the top and got the same thing. There is now one less coyote in Acton, Ca. What I figured out was, when it came in under the fence from the outside it was at an angle where it didn't hit the hot wire but when it tried to get out its rear end was raised up enough to hit the hot wire. The fence now has a hot wire around the outside. To date no more dead chickens.
Always try the easiest thing first.
