So alligators and invasive pythons weren't enough?

"I've seen coyotes running slowly through the fog with red rags in their mouths and it's only when I come home that I realize that the red rag is a cat. It's something one must live with if you live in the hills."

And cougars.  But they're mostly centered around Boca and Ft. Lauderdale.

Coyotes help control rat populations which is probably why politicians are so afraid of them.

If they are killing outdoor cats, they are also helping the song bird population.

FTFA: She claims that two of her cats were killed by coyotes.

I like how they said "claims", like that's extremely unlikely. "Haha, okay lady, your cats got eaten by coyotes. Lemme guess, your dog got abducted by aliens, right?"

Just give them an Acme catalog and I'm sure that will solve the problem.

Keep your cats inside. Keep your dogs in a fence.

Cats are not lions. Dogs are not wolves.

No, it doesn't matter that they have their claws or teeth.

Of the two, only dogs need sufficient "outside" time. Cats just climb all your stuff for excercise and fun (and to look down on you, pathetic pathetic humans.)

PSIChick: Won't someone think of the poor, defenseless Coyotes? Has everyone on Fark lost their humanity? I mean, how can you not feel sorry for the Coyote when he spends all that money with ACME only to always miss the Roadrunner!

Sounds to me like what you have is not a coyote problem, but a solution to your cat problem.

Excellent advice (that I follow) to keep my dog breathing in and out and relatively unbloodied. That said, some dog breeds need a lot more outdoor time and activity than others.

Well, tell Florida to stop smoking Ugly Coyote cigars and smoke something else. Sheesh, the dumb biotch is right next to Cuba. Let her smoke Cohibas.

It's difficult to train a cat to be an indoor cat after having them be outdoor cats their entire lives. Our cats are outdoor cats (I live in Cleveland, so it's not like they have to worry about being eaten by wolves), I can't imagine how I would go about training those cats to not escape the house. Not that I would anyway, because we have zero rat/shrew/mole/chipmunk problems as a result of our murderbeast, Steven. The only time I've ever really feared for that cat's safety was because she (yes, a female cat named Steven) likes to take on things that most cats shouldn't - she takes down big-ass crows sometimes. I once saw her stalking a wild turkey. I don't think that would have ended well for her.

/She thought better of it
//She gets really irritated if she's been in the house too long.

Wildlife officials said cutting off the coyote's food source by keeping pets inside and making sure your trash cans are secure blood supply with bullets and broadheads can work.

FTFY.

We had a coyote problem a few years back. They got too damned bold in a neighborhood with a lot of small kids, so we killed the bold ones. The rest stay where they belong, back in the woods. We know they are there, but they don't come around people, so it's fine.

This is a news story? They've only been on Front Beach Road next to Spinnakers and Club La Vela in Panama City Beach for ten years. The women that work there are nice to look at but some of the local bar lizards that stroll through the door are so rough on the eyes it makes it hard to keep your drinks down.

Wouldn't it have been more appropriate to supervise prey sized children as opposed to killing the coyotes?

i thought everybody just lived with this knowledge if they lived in a rural or near rural area.

I mean, my in laws worry about birds of prey coming for their toy dog. it would have been sad if it happened, but i would have been pretty impressed.

Windermere is full of rich pretentious d-bags. Here's hoping they eat the rich, and that smug roadrunner too.

When I  lived in  SoCal, the only time it was legal to fire a gun in city limits was if you were shooting a coyote. Los Angeles and the surrounding cities have quite the problem with them. Well, at least  they did. Don't know if any of  that holds  true anymore as I moved up to NorCal years ago. Far as I know you can't shoot anything in city limits here unless you're at the range (I'm not sure if we even have one in city limits here) or your life is in imminent danger and you have tried to retreat to safety.
 
2013-01-29 03:54:58 PM
Well ya, the pretty coyotes won't go anywhere near that state.

Maggie_Luna: Wouldn't it have been more appropriate to supervise prey sized children as opposed to killing the coyotes?


eh, coyotes aren't exactly endangered. controlling them by way of securing trash and not filling the area with their food is good as prevention, but if you get them in your area taking a few of them out to thin the pack down isn't a big deal. i'd say trap them (since you can get the hide without damage that way) but since thats kind of a pita if you don't already have the facilities, shooting isn't a big deal.

I, for one, welcome our new cat population control overlords. Finally, there is a more humane answer to the stray cat problem, instead of hoarding them. We're saving money, time and doing something for the ecology.

Maggie_Luna: Wouldn't it have been more appropriate to supervise prey sized children as opposed to killing the coyotes?


No.

Why?

Because allowing a modicum of age appropriate freedom (for instance, letting a 6 year old play in the back yard where you can hear them, but not necessarily always see them) is a healthy thing.

The alternative is to keep the kids inside when they should be playing outside. Don't you care about childhood obesity?

Besides, coyote hunting is pretty fun. I didn't realize that until we had that situation. First time I hunted them I went out back into the "wetlands" behind the house and called one in by loudly kissing the back of my hand. Coyote got lucky that day: A twig deflected my arrow.

/I had a hunting license, so it was legal.

Would a make over to the coyotes solve the problem?

I actually had a couple of #2 leg hold traps, but I was reluctant to use them because my neighbors dogs occasionally got loose, and I didn't want to end up with one of them in the traps. Plus, some of the neighbors let their cats roam, and while a #2 won't seriously hurt a decent sized dog, it could possibly do so to a cat.

The coyotes are making a comeback in New England as well. With any luck, they'll bring down the number of deer.
 
2013-01-29 04:15:02 PM
Here in Lake Country, which is right next to Orange County, we have them too and I was told by county officials to shoot them if I could. As long as I watched where I was aiming, they are a nuisance animal and that I was free to kill them. Now I do live in a slightly more rural area than Windemere, but not by much. So far anytime I've seen one, I wasn't armed and I don't go around armed so I guess they are safe from me.

It is weird how in the last few years it seems coyotes have exploded across the country. Around here thre have been lots of foxes. Ive even seen them in my neighborhood. My parents live in lower slower Delaware and they had a cop shoot a rabid fox a few months back. I was helping my dad turn off the water at a beach house and saw one jump from the bushes it was weird got a good picture of it before it disappeard.
 
2013-01-29 04:20:01 PM
I've seen 3 of them in different parts of Clearwater (in Pinellas county).
 
2013-01-29 04:22:17 PM
Look, I'm no expert, but dingoes and babies? Keep 'em away from each other.
