What if it's ACME brand burritos?

Only YOU can prevent coyote diarrhea.

Because coyote farts are the leading cause of climate change.

That's just stupid.

Coyotes prefer Quiznos.

"Squirrels and birds are exempted."

That's racist!

It's Colorado; tell people the coyotes are homeless and watch these "food donations" come to a stop.

Please don't feed the coyotes.

Unless it's Charlie.  It's totally OK to feed Charlie.

Leave them food, but fill it with habanero sauce and other hot stuff.  Make them fear any human food.  Spicy apples with Scorned Woman injected into them, burritos that are 90% jalapenos, that sort of stuff.

better to be a "source of food" than a "food source"...

You are in coyote country

I'm confused... Is this better or worse than bat country? Can we stop here??

The city on Jan. 18 launched a focused program of hazing coyotes

I fail to understand how making them dress in embarassing outfits and perform humiliating stunts and submit to spankings will help in any way!
 
2013-02-07 07:42:48 AM
Shoot them. Coyotes are pests.

That is just going to lead to a race of super coyotes that are immune to pepper spray.
 
2013-02-07 07:43:51 AM
Feed them Big Mac and fries. Eventually they'll get fat and they'll sit on the couch the whole day. No more coyote sightings. Problem solved!
 
2013-02-07 07:53:41 AM
What other kinds of burritos exist? I've never seen all-day crock-pot burritos.
 
2013-02-07 07:55:51 AM
Is it possible the burritos were poisoned? Did they even bother to check the possibility?

Oddly, those bullets have a habit of hazing people too if they accidentally pass through one. If one is happy with major hazards, I suppose imposing them to deal with less desired minor ones might make sense.

Well we use cars to deal with the minor inconvenience of walking and those kill exponentially more people than bullets or arrows.

My girlfriend's parents came to visit after moving to Colorado and said they'd seen more black people here in one day than they had for months in Colorado. At least the door wasn't wide open this time, because she doesn't say "black people".

She means well but she is so dense, you could hide a dwarf star in her ass.

Well, exponentially more than arrows, but approximately the same as bullets.

Now, if you had said "accidentally kill exponentially more people than bullets or arrows" I'd support that, because there are roughly about 600 accidental gun deaths per year (606 in 2010, according to the CDC), and about 35,000 vehicle deaths.

They've had a hazing program for coyotes? What, they get them drunk, shave them naked and leave them tied to a lamppost downtown?

600^2 would be 360000.  Well, it's a tenth of exponential.  OTOG an exponent of 1 or negative is possible

You can use bullets that are designed to fragment on impact with smaller animals like coyotes.  In fact, some bullets are specifically designed to do just that, and for the same reasons you mention.

As a side effect, they generally "blow up" when they hit something solid other than the intended target also, so the chance of a ricochet is greatly lessened.

In areas that are just too densely populated for guns to be an option except in obvious self-defense uses, the use of something that shoots arrows would be warranted.  Perhaps a crossbow for those who don't have the time and desire to become good enough with a conventional bow.  Even shooting a coyote with a small game blunt would be a very effective harassment tool, especially if you did it from concealment.  Hurts like nobody's business, but would almost certainly not be fatal to the coyote or to someone who might get accidentally hit (which seems like a pretty unlikely occurrence).

Yogimus: Is anyone here really suggesting gunning down coyotes in an urban neighborhood?


Why not?

If you use the appropriate bullets, in an accurate gun that is the appropriate caliber, you can do it relatively safely.  It's not like we're saying that every person with a gun should go gunning for them, but those with the proper tools and skills can do it relatively safely.

Plus, for those areas where you absolutely *CAN'T* use a gun, something like a bow or crossbow would be appropriate, especially if you use blunts.  Again, you'd want people with the appropriate tools and skills necessary in order to minimize the risks.

Ten yards is a bit braggadocious.

Neighbor used to discipline his hunting dogs with buckshot.  Loaded his own shells for the purpose. It didn't seem to leave them crippled.

Coyotes are vermin. One ate my cat about 10 years ago and my old next door neighbors had their whole coop full of chickens massacred. Some 50 or so hens. By the time Rog and his kids woke up and realized what was happening, the coyotes had killed everything, including about a dozen chicks. Probably took all of about five minutes. They didn't eat any of them, they just slaughtered them and then stood there and took several .308s. The yuppie/hepster couple that owned the house across the street tried to boohoo the whole neighborhood about that.

We just laughed.

Because you are all assholes. Put out food for an indigent species then shoot them when they do what's natural instead of cleaning up your own act so that you don't attract them in the first place. Assholes.

Well, one method works, while the other does not.  Coyotes don't care about your feelings.

We actually had a colony of the vermin here in Stafford County, Va. (3 miles east of Fredericksburg). A neighbor killed 9 down by the Rappahannock River. They had eaten quite a few of my cats by that point and I was glad to find out why my kitties were disappearing and that the problem had been solved.

/Only the kitties that normally stayed in sight of the house survived.

I just spotted a coyote making his way through the small stretch of woods behind my house last weekend so I'm getting a kick. I'm thinking there's a den back there because in the spring you could hear them howl and whatnot at night. As long as they leave my lab alone I've got no problems with them.

They can eat the neighbors yippy little dogs she lets run through the neighborhood for all I care.

/And the other neighbors Chihuahua that likes to duce in my lawn.

They didn't eat any of them. They just slaughtered every chicken in the coop. A coop surrounded by a chain link fence and covered with hawk netting. It wasn't predation, it was just slaughter.

I prefer a pellet rifle in the 500 fps range.  Makes no noise, and it won't kill em.  The infection probably will... Also works on the neighborhood cats.
