They live in Woodland Hills, which is a built-up neighborhood, so he wouldn't have expected this to happen there, he said.
"We don't live in a zoo, we live in Los Angeles," Eliyahuo said. "Now I'm really, really, really afraid to let the kids go out, even in the back yard, by themselves."


And before it was your built-up neighborhood, it was the Coyotes' home. They're not going to just leave, when there are fewer and fewer places to leave to.

Anyone that doesn't expect coyotes in California is delusional.  They're fine with haunting urban environments - more so at night but they are there.  They have adapted to cities quite well - and they appreciate what a lovely food source they are.  The only upside for us humans is that they are cowardly as hell unless they have the numbers to dry gulch you or you're obviously extremely helpless - like a toddler.  They're opportunists, they see an easy out they're liable to go for it.  Fences are your friend - and not 4' bullshiat either.  They can get over 6' if they really want to, but they generally won't 'cause it's not easy if you have nothing to act as an intermittent step for them, and they don't want to be trapped in a yard if it turns out it's not such an easy out after all.  Clear out stuff they can use as steps to get in, keep the fence in good shape, you're fine barring the occasional "Fark it" case of a coyote that's ill, starving, or has starving pups

That and either have a dog door so pets can scoot inside at need, or keep your damn pets inside at night.  That's when they do their serious pack hunting - don't care how badass your dog/whatever is - it ain't gonna win vs. a pack

I wish I hadn't read that because it's too sad. A toddler was hurt and has to receive rabies shots. Physically, she may be fine, but she may develop a fear of dogs now. A wild dog will be hunted down and killed. It's just depressing.

Raccoons love dog doors. Admittedly not as much of a problem as a coyote in the house, but still.

The advent of traffic cameras showed that there are thriving coyote populations literally everywhere, including deep inside large metropolitan areas, like Los Angeles, specifically.  They live in pockets of vegetation in parks & cloverleafs, verges & medians, and use the freeways to travel downtown to raid dumpsters in the dead of night when there's no traffic.

Until they set up the cameras, there had been NO reported sightings.  Not one.  They're that sneaky.  No matter where you are in America, there are probably multiple coyotes within a mile of you.

That said, they're usually quite shy - hence the ninja-like lack of sightings in L.A.  It's the hybrid coywolves that are scary.  Bigger & stronger, less afraid but just as sneaky...  The coyotes just want to sneak their food or hunt small things, and the wolves don't want anything to do with us or our cities & towns, but the coywolves are adapted to us and much bolder.

We have recently been seeing a big increase in coyote populations around my rural parts. It's very rare to see them, but when a pack starts howling and yipping while on a kill, that shiat is blood curdling. I won't shoot them unless given good reason, but my dog doesn't go outside at night unleashed. She'd just want to make friends.

I am going to guess no matter where you live, it is not smart to let a 2-year-old outside by themself

The majority of the attacks are on small children 2 years old that are alone and even then the last I looked on Wikipedia, there wasn't a recorded death in the USA since 1981 and that was once again a 3 year old.

Given that dumbf*cks keep feeding coyotes in those areas because they are absolute idiots, coyotes become less concerned about humans. I always make to a point to hit them with large rocks whenever I encounter them.

I wonder how many bear cubs get eaten by coyotes. Oh, none, because the mama bear kicks the shiat out of them. We are the apex predator and coyotes will learn that if people stop being idiots. I realize that people will continue to be idiots, so people in LA should get used to coyote eating their cats, small dogs and babies.

The price for stupidity should always be death.

There's a reason women like my mother made sure there were plenty of windows facing the yard. She always had at least one dog out there with us. If the dog made any noise other than a fun, playtime with the kids bark, she came running. The overwhelming majority of the time, the problem was a person, not an animal.

I'm always impressed by that cat's hiat whenever I rewatch the video.  He just flies in full body using all of his momentum to knock the dog away, takes a half sec to regain his bearings, and then restarts the chase.  That cat was an NFL linebacker in a previous life.
