Would you be willing, for instance, to give up your neighborhood green space for fear that a coyote pack may settle in?

I live in Colorado, so I'm getting a kick...

Human culture is a crisis that may be provoking another evolutionary stage.

Crows, raccoons, coyotes, dogs, cats, seagulls, etc...
All of these that interact very well with human civilization...are adapting.

question: i live in a residential part of a city. essentially suburban, but in the city limits. am i allowed to shoot a coyote? i bet i can't, unless he's a direct threat.

which of course would turn me into Uncle Jimbo

I like how the article talks about how they are thriving due to ample food and lack of predators in the city then says the guy from OSU is stumped about why the coyotes moved into the city.

We have a pack in the neighborhood. Haven't seen any of them, but you can hear them from time to time.

Probably not. They'd cite you for firing too close to a residentiap area or something. Then again, call the state game office and local p.d. And see what they say. Probably still no.

I live in urban southern California and have a military base next door that is also a nature preserve. No kick. Just small dogs and cats being eaten every day by coyotes ranging off the base.

/the birds of prey that inhabit the base are beautiful, though

wife has a small dog. i have a bigger dog that would probably just try to cuddle the coyote. so i may be able to under defense of property. but given the way my town is going, they'd likely throw the book at me.

You don't have use a gun. A bow or crossbow would be adequate. Also, if you ding them with an air rifle whenever they come near, they will quickly learn to avoid your area. Another option would be to use .22 CB caps in a rifle made for .22 S/L/LR. A hit to the lungs will be fatal, and the loudest sound from it will be the "clack" of the striker. It's like having a silencer.

Discharging a fire arm in the city limits would get you into trouble. A trap is probably a much better alternative. It won't scare your neighbors and you don't have to sitting around all day a night waiting for a the coyote to wonder into your backyard. Once you got one of those bastards in the trap just toss it in your neighbors pool when he isn't home for 10 minutes and then put the carcass in the trash.

...But you might catch you neighbor's beloved pet instead, and then you'll be at the barrel-end of a jackpot lawsuit.

We have occasional days when some of the schools cancel recess or hold the students after school because of wildlife in the area. Last spring, Ms. Gough was doing outreach at one of the schools and they kept the kids in because of a moose on the playground.

When I walk out the front door and see ID Fish and Game parked at the end of our alley, I know it'll be one of those days. Bear and moose are the most troublesome around here; I think everyone assumes that they'll be coyotes and deer.

not really. usually its a few hundred dollars. pets are just property as far as the law is concerned.

If he brings a coyote, you bring a bear. It's the Chicago way.

They don't become more cunning. The dumber ones just die off.

i bet that could also apply to the local dogs that enjoy shiating in my yard

hmmm

Yeah! There have-traditionally-never been any butcher shops, delis, hot dog vendors, dogs, cats, or humans in big cities. It'll be nice to see a cange.

And yes, I know, "yadda yadda omnivores, yadda yadda." Well the things in the article are too sometimes-bears especially.

Guess they never had a falcon touch down next to them in the middle of a city. Damn if those things aren't alot bigger in person and not strapped securely to someone's wrist.

Depending on the gun, yes. The won't cycle a semi-auto though. They feed and shoot fine in my old Marlin bolt action.

They don't usually have enough power to cycle a semi auto. Use a 22 revolver or a single shot rifle/bolt action rifle.
