Maybe somewhere up in the mountains or in the subs. As heartless it is you dont have to be very close if you have a gun. Then again coyotes are scared of anything.

Coyotes seem to be Thriving. In upstate NY, I didn't hear much about coyotes in the 90s, but now I keep hearing about them confronting adults (while in groups), eating cats/dogs, and harassing cows.

In NH the coyotes are huge - most people think they are wolf/coyote hybrids. They hunt in packs, take down deer and sheep, and they aren't afraid of people...

57, eating the pets and attacking humans isn't a sign of a thriving coyote population. It's a sign I a desperate one. They're being pushed out of their habitat unfortunately, forcing them to find new food sources, and forcing them to be a little braver.

We have a shit-tonne in Canada. However, no one I know has ever lost a pet to one. Either our coyotes are very Canadian and thus extremely polite, or we're just not stupid enough to leave our pets outside.

We have a ton here in PA but open hunting on them. They scavenge, eat small pray and the occasional chicken or rat dog. I love the polite Canadian coyote comment. Ha that rocks.

115 and 123- thank you! I have cats, chickens,coyotes and foxes on my land. I've lost exactly 1 chicken to a predator and that was a hawk. If its night or I know a mother coyote or fox is denning nearby I keep cats and chickens in. They go out during the day only and into fenced runs so they dont destroy wildlife for the cats. Coyotes when studied will leave all human food (pets included) alone if there is sufficient natural food, or it's supplemented with a feeding station away from people. Only hungry coyotes (usually mothers with pups) are driven to go in close to people and kills pets.

You know, I once entered ten puns in a con.... Eh you've already heard this joke. I'm sorry OP! Losing a loved pet is hard, but keep your chin up!

I think a note was better. The neighbour can't be expected to wait around all day watching for OP to arrive. Besides, with a note you are left alone with your feelimgs which I certainly would appreciate.

It's not that rare- I live in the northeast- where the forests are ridiculously massive. There's one in my backyard, and we see coyotes and foxes running around all the time, waiting to snatch up one of our 3 Shih Tsu's.

Why you got thumbed down is beyond me, it is not like you said something offensive like laughing at Op's loss, all you did was say you've never heard of a coyote in town. The rest of you are just way too harsh.

Thank you 62 - I did nothing wrong! Just because Im from a country without coyotes :/ now your getting thumbed down - honestly what the hell! ?

4- there are coyotes running in Phoenix all the time And OP, sucks for you :( time to get a bigger dog!

I'm so glad I going to Nevada this weekend, you're allowed to shoot any coyotes you see on the spot there because of the trouble they cause, I'll take one down in memory of OP's dog :)

7- Ithought I'd give you a tip... the Marines say Oorah, the Army says Hooah and the Navy Seals say Hooyah. Don't insult the memory of those who've died for your freedom by pretending to be a member of the US military.

17 - To be fair nothing on their profile say "I was in USMC". This looks to me like a little kid that admires and wishes maybe one day to join. If not then you're completely right.

40- Perhaps you're right. I was thinking he was trying to catch some Internet tail. My loved ones put themselves in harms way to watch out for me, so I get a little bit fiesty. ;) Thank you sir, for your service.

17- My husband is in the Air Force and my father is in the Army. I can tell you that none of those are set in stone. Hoorah, Oorah, whatever. It doesn't matter. I've heard people from all branches use all of those phrases. I would know. I grew up on an Army base and now I live on an Air Force base. Don't try and insult other people's intelligence by preaching shit when you a) have no clue what your talking about and b) throw weight around even though you personally never served.

Hooah? Right? Because thats what marines say... Go to hell. Dont pretend to be in the corps if your not. - A real marine. O and if that is supposed to be a drawing of your yourself- you made your self a boot ass PFC. Dont know if you know that or not.

Umm actually your wrong... Marines would not be caught dead saying hooah... We definately say oorah. Take your own advice and stop talking about things you know nothing about.

Reply

No actually I do know what I'm talking about. You're probably not even in the service. You're probably some retarded teenager who plays CoD all day and that's why you think the Marines are so cool. I lived my entire live in the military society. I know what I'm fucking talking about. Stupid kid.

Reply

Cornielious are you stupid? I'm a Marine and I've heard people say Hooah and Oorah. STFU if you don't know nothing about the corps. Officerwife, don't listen to him. You're absolutely right.

All these Americans switching the subject from dogs being eaten by coyotes, to whose dock is bigger in your own military.. No wonder you guys can't even find guys in caves, you're too busy saying who says the best shout LOL

I know what you're saying, I'm GOING to enlist in the Marines in a few months, it's been my dream to be a Marine ever since I was a kid, I guess I'm just a little too pumped lol. Thanks though ( and I'm 17, not a little kid lol )

7- congratulations an thank you for your future service. 53- ask your dad if he really would say any of those. As for your husband... Air force so idk. My brother, cousins, grandfathers (both), aunt and lover however have to disagree with you. How dare you say to me the things that you said? I love these people more then life itself.

If only we had a season for hunters. It's only fair right? FYI I'm pro food hunting, but hunting just to kill and waste I find sickening. Oh well I'll just laugh when you have even more coyotes because they increase their litter size to deal with large losses. Please tell me you are at least skinning them out and using some part of them. If not, giving them to someone who will. Certainly I could link you up with someone who'd be more then happy to take any so they don't go to waste.

All the trouble coyotes cause? I can't walk out my door without being afraid for my life because one of the many halfwit dog owners won't leash their aggressive shithounds in the neighborhood. Just got mace to protect myself from the dog first then the idiot owner.

15 read the comment between Doc's comment and yours. Something might click in your head. If you don't know from the movie it came from or Seinfeld you might be to young or something.

#26 I don't think I'm too young for Seinfeld. I just never actually watched it because I couldn't stand watching it for more than two minutes (no offense to anyone who likes that show). Also, I was being sarcastic...this is why a sarcasm font is needed. And while I'm at it, too*

#26, it is was Seinfeld, the dog's name would be Farfel. I'm guessing it has something to do with Doc's ongoing crusade against Justin Bieber.

Perdix, I have nothing against the kid. I just don't see what all the fuss is about. I think she just needs to be knocked down a few levels. Falafalo - You cheated and read the blog, didn't you!
