  1. Folks, coyotes were here long before we were. It’s not the coyotes that are encroaching on territory, but that we’ve overrun theirs. During this process we’ve also devastated their natural prey populations in many areas. As a result coyotes are forced to adapt to the changes we’ve made to their environments by changing what they eat to what’s easily available.

    Domestic cats are an easy target for a hungry coyote. If you let your cat roam you’re putting it into a wild environment were it’s subject to naturally occurring predators from which cats have little ability to defend themselves. The goes for any dog less than 50 pounds. If people are going to let their small pets roam, they shouldn’t complain when those same animals are killed by natural predators or meet some other untimely end. All domestic animals should be properly managed. This includes reasonable containment to keep them safe, protected and to protect other animals from being attacked by your domestic pets. Failure to take these steps that results in the death of your pet or some other animal should not be blamed on nature but on the irresponsibility of the owners that left their pets unprotected, and unattended. Folks don’t let their small children wander unattended yet they seem to think nothing of doing this with domestic pets. Then when nature takes it’s course, people want someone to come and “take care of the problem” when the problem is that people aren’t taking care of their pets.
