    Don't worry about it leave it alone. Obviously keep an eye on the kids don't leave them alone outside by themselves. Cats are excellent fighters and escape artists it is looking for an easy meal the risks are minimal at best.

    I have a canyon behind the back yard. I hear coyotes every night. There were times they would enter the back yard and drink water from the pool. When confronted they run away unless they feel they are being attacked.

    Keep the cats inside after dark.

    He's fine

    I've got a fox that hangs around my deck here. I always toss my scraps out for her.

    She used to be afraid but now just prances right up, grabs the bones, and pranced back to the dock area.

    The coyote probably won't do anything solo, they are pack animals so likely he'll not be there much longer...certainly isn't gonna venture onto your deck or anything. He's looking for squirrel or rabbit or baby deer.

    There really IS a big difference.
    I have heard and seen them close by at night. These are not your scrubby Western little dogs. They also breed with wolves to make the coywolf. So it really does depend on a lot of factors. It could also be a red wolf or flat out eastern wolf. In all cases you wait because they will kill everything they can then leave --they don't like cars and roads. An eastern coyote never stays anywhere nicely lit at night or with sounds that interfere with their calls. Your lone coyote calling will find a mate or a pack and move on.

    Coyote calls are more yippy. Their kills are like yippy woo hoo celebrations. If you hear a lower-pitched, longer, more visceral HOWL that sounds like a freaking horror movie, that's not a full coyote. It's a coywolf or wolf. When I hear that I go back in the house if it's really dark out. Even with a gun you can't see them coming. But they can see you.

    Kept the cats inside for now.

    My wife left out a bag of food, I think he got the scent and thatís what made him come close. He looked very thin, so he probably expanded his area looking for food. I scared him away temporarily but he came back when the coast was clear.

    Almost 40 lived in the same area my whole life. Never saw one unless I hiked in the woods. My dad mid 60s also said heís never seen one close to the house like that. This is Pittsburgh suburbs. I live in a wooded area.

    Should I expect him and some friends when night hits?

    One reason animals move, for food. Probably would not pass on a cat. Have you seen "development" in the area? I would say the habitat is deteriorating or the food source is increasing...has to be one of the 2

    Yes. They started developing a new plan behind my house a few years ago. Very odd that the first day I get one in the yard my wife leaves a bag of food right next to where the woods begins. I have to imagine he has gotten scent of the cats though.

    The news spreads like a female co-worker with special skills. The scouts relay the news and then they hunt in groups. One drought year they would wander some residential streets at night on a nightly basis. The city had to contact Animal Control to solve the issue.

    Let them eat your cats as a donation to nature! Cats have shit and piss boxes inside the house and at least you can throw out the shit boxes for good.

    Here in Connecticut coyotes are the only animal you can hunt 365 days a year. They eat all the cats and take down small dogs for meals so they are considered vermin.

    I think you need to call game, fish, and parks. If they say you can hunt them, shoot the mfrís! Or hire a pro with dogs to run them off.

    Maybe, there is a legal way to live trap them so they can be put to sleep.

    At the very least, the game warden should have some advice

    live trap (cage style) a cat/bobcat...no problem
    live trap a canine (cage style)...damn near impossible
    using foothold trap ive caught eastern yotes in less than 24 hrs....not a bunch but very possible. legal size, offset footholds do nearly no damage to a eastern yote paw.

    These idiots saying poison or foot trap a single coyote are half faggots. Trust me a single coyote isn't going to hurt anything. If you have a kid under the age of 5 keep an eye on him but other than that leave nature alone.

    I live right off a canyon in the hills. Thereís a pack that lives very close by. I was walking my dogs on a private hiking trail at dusk one night freshly baked when they surrounded us from all directions cackling at us. We all booked it out of the woods as fast as we could. Very glad my dogs didnít try and start a fight or get lured to play. Turns out we were very close to a den during pup season. They do not take kindly to that. They are vicious lil fackers. Will bite your dogs ballsack off without thinking twice. Keep your cat inside. The coyote knows it lives there.

    having the skills to make a wild animal as smart as an eastern yote place his paw on a spot smaller than a business card makes me a half a faegula? news to me chief but if the guy w/the pic of two guys in his avatar says so I guess Im ok with that.

    about the poison though, I agree: don't do that...a yote would need bout 40 lbs to kill it.

    As a young lad I was playing in the front yard and our Balinese cat was out with her three Kittens. The next door neighbors dog, a Pug/Bulldog had escaped through an open fence and approached our property. The dog {who was about five times the size of our cat} began to move towards the nesting liter. The dog barked, the cat screeched then the dog made his move
    "Rebel "The dogs name spent several days at the veterinary hospital, almost died from infection and lost vision in one eye. Never the same after that day. Our cat was the nicest, mellowist animal on the planet. But she attached that dog with a ferocity I had never witness before or ever since. There are many strong bonds in this world. But the one between mother and her off spring is the absolute strongest. inho.

    Give me 2lbs of hamburg and 12oz of compound 1080...
    and that coyote will be dead in less than 5 minutes.

    When it comes down to your kid or a coyote it's a no-brainer that the coyote goes immediately. WTF is wrong with some of you guys? Kill that coyote ASAP.

    LMFAO @ half faggots. Yeah, its a coyote not a bear. These stupid cowardly faggots always afraid of something can't just let things be. If the coyote eats your kid, then it was meant to be anyway. I agree.

    Agreed...just leave it alone and keep an eye on your kid and keep the animals inside.

    Poison is a brutal death with suffering for hours. A bullet to the head is a far more humane option if it comes to that.

    Shot at one yesterday checking the cattle. It's hot and dry and I am seeing them closer to the ponds now. The coyote was probably 130-150 yards in some grass near the pond. All I could see was his ears sticking up. I shot where I thought his head was. Did not get him, but it was a very difficult shot. IF you don't shoot a coyote, there is pretty much nothing else going to get it.They will try to rip the guts out of calves and eat them alive if they are newborns. They are a huge nuisance.

    Use. 308 Winchester for coyotes there is no need for an animal to suffer. I understand sometimes wildlife has to be dealt with but it should be done as swiftly and humane as possible.
