We are having quite a few coyote attacks on small pets in my area (Anthem). Anybody know where to source coyote warnng signs? I don't know if the HOA's would be willing to have them installed but if they do, I want to have a source. I've looked on the internet and haven't found a stock, mass produced sign suitable for our needs. Most signs are "coyote parking", "coyote crossing" etc. I need something more serious. Thanks for helpful suggestions

Do you think Coyotes can read?

Are those small pets on leashes.

We have invaded coyotes territory. And small pets are food for these animals.

Keep you pets on a leash at all times or in the house.

We got coyotes and bobcats over here in the higher elevations of Summerlin. Lots of missing pets become food. Our guards say they find the collars off the pet taken as food.

Every so often we hear what we are certain is a dog or cat being taken by a coyote. God, what a sound! Sun City Summerlin.

Watch Looney Tunes' Wiley Coyote--he not only reads, but receives routine shipments of over-sized objects from Acme, apparently a mail order company specializing in all sorts of anti-roadrunner gear.

When I lived in Colorado, (Denver burbs) our new neighbors from outside the area would let their cats roam the neighborhood freely. I would warn them about the Coyotes, and they'd just give me a funny look. In a week or two, their would be a sign up on the mailbox cluster "Missing Cat, Fluffy, please call xxx-xxx-xxxx if you find her." Fluffy was not missing. Fluffy was breakfast/lunch or dinner. Even dogs would go "missing" occasionally.

Kind of interesting. It has always been a problem in Sun City Summerlin. The rough on the golf course is referred to as the "coyote buffet". The primary game is rabbits which live there in significant quantity.

Get over into Lone Mountain and it does not appear to be a problem. Our cul de sac has at least 4 outdoor cats and has had some roaming for the last 20 years. For 12 years we had a feral living on our patio. At present our big male wanders the yard though he does not leave the property.

Neighbors lost a chihuahua and another dog was injured but both of those were the work of another neighborhood dog.

The local theory is that the coyotes don't go over the walls. Not that they can't but that they don't because some of the walls contain creatures that can easily eat a coyote.

Had friends in La Cañada in southern CA. who backed to the national forest. The theory there were cats were fine until they they reached their teens when they lost the half second they used to get up a tree or on a garage roof to escape. So outdoor cats were common but no old ones.

This is off topic but we used to live in La Canada when I was growing up. We lost cats all the time.
They would just disappear.
