another video of "I shouldn't be alive" where a man had to walk to work b/c his car wouldn't start, it was still dark out and a group of coyotes attacked him....apparently they had young pups with them...that they needed to feed. He lived, but they really hurt him.

I saw that same story about the guy getting attacked. That was crazy.

yeah it was, scary....actually....they say they are smart critters.....

all the more reason for humans NOT to put out food....it draws them in....animals will go where ever humans leave food out, even sharks....

humans are so freakin stupid.....

There was a woman who lived in the Poconos...many years ago, and she was feeding a bear....
The wack job has a toddler sitting on the floor and she opened the sliding glass door and allowed the bear to come in....

they had to shoot the bear, he def associated people with food, which is a very dangerous thing to do.

So the same thing with sharks...they are bringing them in for people who want to dive with them, crazy people? so they chum and the sharks are learning....and stay closer to shore now....I mean they've always been there, but, now there are more who come in closer....

did you see the one where the bear attacked the man, and kept coming back....Good lord.

yes, I've read (and I don't know if this is true) but they say they will send out one, a sort of bait coyote, to lure domesticated dogs back, and the pack is waiting for them, so the coyote appears to be playing with the dog, and it lures the dog further and further away to where the pack is waiting.????

When yotes pack up heavy they become different critters. I've only seen this once here. They were hanging around the horse ranch my Dad and I were working on and had killed four new foals. Dad declared war and killed a couple with a 22 but they got smart quick and started staying out of range.


Sending in a scout who would hang out way out and watch us. When we would leave he'd call the pack. So Dad brought out his 30 06. I've never seen since a shot that mortal man could make with a rifle match this. He nailed the scout on the move dead behind the shoulder and I paced it off at 500 yards.


They quit hanging around after that. No more problems. Attacks on humans all seem to be happening back east. There's been a lot of hybriding with wolves back there from what I hear. That's scary.

Here in the Northeast we have the Eastern Coyote, aka "coywolf", they're generally larger than out west, but some states here still limit hunting them to .22LR.

In New Hampshire, we generally use bigger rounds, though with .22LR you're exempt from the magazine limit and can go full auto.

Various genetic surveys on Eastern coyotes, have found these newly arrived coyote hybrids are western coyote, eastern wolf, gray wolf, and a touch of domestic dog:

I think they do jump the fences pretty high. Had heard of that in Arizona.

Coydog. We have those here but it's cross with domestic dog not wolf. I would think coy wolf would be what you have back East. I had a coy dog for a long time . There's a really good pic on my profile. He was a serious customer. He answered to nobody but me and I never had to worry about my truck getting messed with. Lol
