    After finding the cat scratch tracks, I was reminded of this incident on the farm in 2011.

    Thanks EB, I will look at all the links later. We just brought our boy HOME! He loaded in the backseat of the truck as soon as the door was opened despite the pain. He is a remarkable dog!

    I have been fighting coyotes for the past 40 years. Goats, cattle, small stock, cats small dogs, nothing is immune from their attacks. Donkeys are a bust! I have seen a pack of coyotes chasing my donkey with no regard for his reputation at all. Llama will protect themselves but you need at least two before they are effective, and in some of the places I have lived the 'yote packs ran into numbers of more than a dozen, and they ignored the presence of my Llamas.

    I have found only two effective means of control,

    The first is poisoned bait piles. Any time you find a kill pour antifreeze all over it. They return to finish off their kills and the antifreeze will get them. They love the taste of the stuff and consume if willingly.

    Second is using a predator call from in a blind, day or night. I will only hunt that way with two people, back to back and at least one of them having a shotgun loaded with large size shot. If I am forced to work a blind alone I only use a shotgun and buckshot and back the blind into a corner where my back is protected.

    It is near terrifying to turn on a predator call, in the dark, and have a dozen 'yotes fire up their pack hunting howls within 100 yards of you. It's abut as close to a primal fear as I have experienced.

    One thing about coyotes is that one does not need access to large plots of land to effectively hunt them.

    Once they have invaded the living space they will enter fenced yards and barn lots freely. If you live in a semirural area where the houses are close, but shooting is still allowed, you can call them right up to your back door using a good predator call, or penned chickens.

    The chickens really did not appreciate being lowered to the status of coyote bait.

    Thanks for the tips Kyrat! I've been pretty busy taking care of our injured pup. But, I am plotting an attack. Priced a live trap yesterday @ $179 ouch!

    Glad to hear the pup is healing. See if you local humane society has live traps to loan.

    Good news on the Bear, hope you get the problem sorted out. BTW from personal experience, don't involve the humane society,(sorry 1sts) you could end up with all sorts of troubles. What about your local Farmers Union or is it 4H?

    Oh, ours is "Animal Control" not "Humane Society." There's apparently a difference. Our Fish and Game also have live traps to loan.

    Big difference 1TS

    Animal control controls the animals. (move them if possible kill them if necessary)

    Humane society controls the human behavior toward the animals. (there are no problem animals only mean people)

    Outside the urban confines the 3-S rule dominates problem animal behavior.

    Occasionally you will find a careless one.

    I was sitting in the Jeep one night listening to the end of a ball game and watched a lean rangy 'yote pounce out into the middle of the road and head my way in that lazy lope stride they have.

    I thought about shooting him but figured he would hear me getting the gun out and the window rolled down.

    Instead I just waited until he was even with the Jeep and blasted the horn.

    He did a four footed flat jump straight up in the air with all feet scrambling the air and bounced off the embankment by the roadside twice before making the top. Looked like something from a Road Runner cartoon!

    I have dealt with them for years, poisoned quite a few I am sure and shot some, but I still consider my head count low compared to the damage they have done me and my neighbors over the years.

    When they run in packs they will attack humans in spite of what the tree huggers tell you. I know of three separate instances where friends of mine have been attacked and injured or cornered and treed by packs.

    I do not take any chances when dealing with them and they are the reason a buckshot loaded 12 gauge sits by the back door 24/7.

    Ah yes, thanks for the clarification. Ours is good. They do a lot. They are really helpful in keeping animals and pets safe, yet realizing that humans do come first. I got our cat from them a couple of years ago.

    I honestly think the Humane Society has a place, but it ain't on my farm, same goes for the SPCA. They apparently have no facilities for horses, have no idea how to care for horses. Heres an example...They'd lock me up if I did not have a shelter for horses. OK, so it is warmer in a shelter when it is 20 F? No, it isn't, a horse heats from the inside out. Available food is how they stay warm not a damn shelter, there is no shelter in the wild. One more, The wonderful SPCA threatened me for my horses eating hay from a round bail off the ground....umm the horses put it on the ground not me. Where the heck does hay grow in the wild? Needless to say I wasn't ever in any danger of being persecuted by idiots, but they damn sure tried. Now, DNR definitely has a place and are required, but umm, not on my farm. I've had all the help I need from the gooberment!
