The only thing I worry about is mountain lions. I run in the mountains, usually alone, and I'm relatively small. If I ever encounter a mountain lion on one of my runs, I'm dead.
I swear, people are so freakin stupid....when they feed wild animals like that, they are creating a danger for everyone else....Good Lord....feeding them?

I would worry about the lions as well...be careful.

OP back.

There seem to be so many coyote spottings in my area these days, that someone posted a website for those who want to sign up for alerts of coyote sightings can sign up if they wish. I signed up for it. I never any more coyotes since I started this thread.

They also have the opportunity for those who've encountered coyotes to submit this online form. I'm wondering if I should do it. It's NOT anonymous, you have to put your name & address, etc. for some reason.

We have coyotes where we live. The only time I've saw one during the day was last week during a rare snow fall. Was out riding and taking pics of the bayous with the snow gracing the trees. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get a picture of him.

Now at night we hear them. Sometimes they're close. I shoot to try to get them away. We have chickens and goats. Already lost a few chickens.

I've heard that coyotes generally kill domestic dogs but once in a while they accept them, which raised questions, b/c now, up in the Poconos, we have coy-dogs? so, I'm thinking they don't kill as many domestic dogs as humans might think?

I am presently watching the story on Animal Planet, "I was Prey". It is the story of a Colorado resident, whose truck broke down and he had to walk to work 6 miles. He left 2 hours early, around 2:30 a.m. to be at work on time. 3 coyotes attacked him, and he is telling the story of how he survived, b/c they were definitely attacking him for food. They had babies...he first heard a high pitch sort of whine before the first attack. He survived only by fighting back....unreal. They went for this throat and face.


True story.

The address would be to get a location map of sightings.

If I shoot a goose or duck with a leg band and call it in, actually it's now done by computer, my name and address is published.

Yep, I saw that episode too a while back when it originally aired. Horrendous story & he's blessed to be alive!

A friend and I went for a walk in an East Bay hillside park yesterday... the trails also took us through some pasture land, and there were a few coyotes prowling around... they seemed to like to stay close to the cattle, probably hoping that the cows' grazing would flush a mouse out of its burrow. The cows ignored the coyotes.

Cows are pretty good at protecting themselves. But the coyotes could have been looking for newborns. For a while I was a yard jockey at a large trucking terminal surrounded by large fields. I use to watch deer and fox in the middle of the night. Doe would have young and the fox were always close looking for an opportunity. I never saw a fox actually get a fawn; but I saw fox get close enough to trigger the does into chasing the fox off - that could have lead to another fox getting the fawn. But I have no idea how coordinated fox work together to take down prey? I am sure the coyotes would not have any problems with that cat and mouse game.
