I have developed a collar for my cat that holds a big, juicy pork chop. So far, no bites.

Slow news day I guess. Actually, calling it news is a misnomer.

By no means however does that mean they aren't there.

AGREE! We need more coyotes!


You'll need something a bit bigger than a coyote, if you're wanting to see the deer population decline.

There's enough smaller stuff for them to eat around here.

:up:

Hence my response. Warnings are good and all that, but wildlife in our area is hardly "news".

"... In the spring coyotes focus on hunting deer fawns, and in areas without wolves or bears coyotes are usually the largest source of fawn mortality.  In various studies coyotes have caused fawn mortality as high as 50% and as low as 9% (5, 6)."

I beg to differ. A single coyote may not attack a deer but a pack of them will. Have seen the aftermath of this more than once before.

i guess that explains the thriving deer and coyote population around here then lol, you can beg all you want but youre incorrect they will have little impact on the deer population. wolves around here kill far more deer and everyone seems to want to shoot them all go figure.

Seen it happen where exactly?

You know we're talking urban areas here, and in 12yrs of living where I do, I see and hear coyotes regularly, but have yet to ever see a "pack" of them.

Out in the wilds perhaps, but not so much around town.

Don't have to go hiking in the woods, when we lived on Dilworth they were always around ( backed into the bedrock)
Our Chow would have stare downs with them.
Neighbours place wasn't fenced and their yappy lil dog was never taken. od he was so awful prolly no one even wanted to name him Dinner

I'm not talking water front but Glenmore isnt considered the wilds by any means.

I've seen packs lots of times right here above trumpeter road. Right next to the houses. Hauntingly beautiful

Lots of coyotes out there.

Then there's the 2 different types of idiots who litter social media:

Looking for Fluffy or Muffy. Let him out and he disappeared.
I fell so compelled to tell them they're idiots and a coyote ate their pet.

Then there's the equally irresponsible morons:

Moving and the new landlord doesnt accept pets (most don't, moron).
We need to rehome our fur baby.
If we can't re home him by the end of the month we are going to have to dump him at the edge of town.

If you DON'T OWN A HOME don't have pets.

Most dogs and cats are taken by coyotes in their own backyards... You don't need to climb Spion Kop to see coyote, they're everywhere in town.
