I saw a coyote tonight while taking Marty..

out!! The coyote was not too far from us!! I am glad Marty did not bark at it thinking it was dog!! The coyote was right in my back yard when through it to get to the field behind my condo. I think they have a small den in the field. I will have to be careful taking my small doggie out at night!! The poor coyote was really thin looking!!

Aw, poor thing! But you're right, keep Marty close to you at all times. Hope there are some nice tasty wild rabbits to keep the coyotes fed.

I am glad it didn't notice you. I love the resurgence of wildlife in our country, but they can pose a danger to small pets.

Yep, especially if they have pups. I think coyotes breed in February, so they must be active hungry buggers by now.

That's just pure animal cruelty. .223 at the minimum. I have seen too many yotes take off with centrefire to even think about rimfire.

You need a hunting license to shoot a coyote in any state, and hunting seasons vary by state. Just saying.

Same here. Although in Alberta, you're permitted to shoot them without a license on private property. I haven't checked the Class B vermaint laws for my province. On public land, or on someone else's property, you need a license.

Whoops, I forgot you were a Canuck! Going off topic, but several months ago we had a raccoon couple setting up shop on our property. My bother wanted to shoot them, and I told him NOOOOOO!
The main reason is that it is illegal to kill raccoons if you live within city limits (which we do) and the local conservation department provides traps to loan for capturing them and releasing them far away from home. I talked my bother into letting them live here, and apparently they have moved on. I miss them coons.

It's excessive to kill a coyote just because one may have seen it on a private property. They are only a nuisance if they keep coming back and causing problems in the neighbourhood. They rarely attack people and their pets unless they are starving and running low on food supply. For instance, cutting down the forest can force the coyotes to relocate and change their ways of hunting for food. Basically, it's our fault for what's happening.

several months ago we had a coyote in the yard next door to us - we live in the middle of the city. My dad has seen them downtown early in the morning <he works third shift security> and I saw one a few weeks ago - this latest one crossed in front of me on the road as I was driving. Coyotes are very adaptable and eat a wide of variety of things - rodents are traditional prey <mice, voles> and rabbits; they also eat chickens, fish, insects, berries...if several can take down a fawn or other smaller hoofed animal, they will do it but they don't typically hunt in packs with the same social structure, or take large prey like wolves do.

in urban areas, coyotes also eat dog food, garbage scraps, and whatever else they can find. This may include small dogs/cats and pet rabbits left un-attended. Coyotes are not extremely shy <unlike wolves> and very opportunistic, so agreeing with Banjo - if they find an easier food source as opposed to traditional hunting, that's what they'll do, especially if they have pups to feed.

I agree! We're taking all the open land and leaving nothing for the wildlife! I get so upset every time I see more trees cut down and and land plowed over that once was home to wildlife!

That's bastard! You could find out who owns the land by looking up the document at the town hall. If it is a commercial owner, then your neighbors should fight against the commercial owner. You and your neighbors need to hire a lawyer to get started as a pool money together for one lawyer. It will work with the lawyer successfully. Don't wait too long. Your group need to discuss it together privately at someone's house first and then go to the court.

That's how we won the case against the town hall from setting up two giant windpowers way too close to our neighbors' home last April 2011.

I am not sure what you're talking about. I said we're losing our open land and by this I mean is happening every where not just in my city but in every state! When we destroy wildlife habitat , the wildlife get pushed into our back yards looking for food! There is nothing I can do about the coyote coming into my yard. I have to be very careful when taking my dog out. The land behind my condo is privately own and the owners want to sell it. Once this happen the coyote will lose it home! The only way I can stop this to find some endanger species on the land. I tried this with the cotton tail rabbits but Massachusetts cottontail rabbits are not on the endanger species list.

Far from it! Rabbits breed like, well, rabbits. I doubt that there will ever be a shortage of them. We get "marsh bunnies" here.

I think I posted here - not sure - that when we came down to our beach house a couple weeks ago, after not being here all winter, we found bear scat on our back deck. Our one-flight-up back deck. Right next to the screen door going to our back porch.

Acckkk!!! Very strange feeling knowing that Mr. Bear had climbed up the lattice below the deck and made himself comfy for a while.

We have also seen foxes, a mama and two cubs, while walking with our dogs. Snakes are not unusual. Rabbits are plentiful, and are usually very active in the late afternoon, when it's not so hot. There are still a few unsold lots in our subdivision. They are heavily wooded, so there are a lot of places for wildlife to hole up.

I think the bear has moved on. I fervently hope so.

Meet Bubba. That is the back deck to my New Mexico condo. He has been hanging out since he was a cub. Never saw momma.

Aw. Kind of cuts down on your sitting out on the patio time, doesn't he? How old is he now?

With two smallish dogs, I would not feel comfortable with a bear permanently living that close to the house. It's odd for us to have bears, since we are on an island, but apparently one or two swam across the Sound last year. They were spotted in Kill Devil Hills (next town up from us), and clearly were in our neighborhood over the winter, and now, according to the park ranger, have moved on. We are close to the Alligator River preserve; they are likely to end up there. Happy ending for all concerned.

In that picture he is 4....He is about 6 now. He is really no bother. He wont come on the deck if somebody is on it. He used to come on the deck at night and drink out of the keg. I got rid of it though because I wasn't there enough


More worried about the bear than I am the people.

You mean more worried that the people might hurt the bear, than the bear might hurt the people? Yeah, I could understand that.

Funny how we humans can form attachments to other mammals, even mammals who could conceivably do us serious harm.
