    Coyotes and a full moon!

    When I brought my dogs in from the back yard tonight the coyotes were really howling up a storm! I don't know if it was the brilliant full moon or if they had just made a kill. Occasionally, I see them through my back fence. There's an orchard behind me then a riverbed and they use the riverbed as a trail up to the mountains. They have actually come to the back fence to "play" with my dogs. One morning I saw one out there in one of those haunches up front end down play postures and I thought it looked so cute! Then another one came up, then another and another and I decided it was time to break up THAT "playdate!" But for the most part they have stayed away. Partially because I read that unneutered male urine will deter them, whether wolf, or human, so I asked my gardener to take his "potty" breaks through the back fence! My neighbor's son, who was working for him at the time, also did it so I guess it might have worked because I never see them that close anymore. It's a lot cheaper than buying wolf urine to spray back there!

    Na, he only works here twice a week and I don't think he has the capacity (unless he drinks a lot of coffee) to over saturate the area, nor does he do it all THAT often. Just enough to keep some scent going. And the yard is 70' wide so he can space it out.

    I don't think we have a bounty on coyotes here, at least none that I've heard of. This morning the dogs were making a ruckus and I looked out and sure enough, a lone coyote was slinking around a fence on my neighbor's property - keeping as far away from my dogs as possible - then headed over to the river when it had a clear path! It was quite a sight!

    Hey, littleman, I think I'll stick with my coyotes! I'm glad I don't have to worry about bears in my area. I don't think we have any wolves here, either. So far the 6' chainlink fence has kept the coyotes at bay. I just see and hear them. So far, no attempts to make a meal out of my pups! I guess they are finding enough food with the rabbits in the area.

    Coyotes- shoot first ask questions and/or forgiveness later...
    They only want to play untill they find the point where your dogs weakness and thier hunger meet. Though you may hear about them on occasions do you ever see packs of domestic beagle dogs that have gone "wild" or wild bands of persian kittys... Nope- all become coyote food - that's why yotes love the suburbs...
    Hotdogs and regular dog food soaked in the old type antifreeze used to make then "go away" but the formulas changed and it don't work anymore...

    In all fairness- the deer was probably hit by a car or something first... Who knows- it was not my camera...
    PEACE

    Brat, that's a funny deterrent methodology. Hopefully that's not one of your detecting spots

    We have quite a few song dogs around here, now. Hope to thin them out, this winter.

    Guess the rest of them will be headed to Washington DC soon.

    Nope, not a detecting spot! My "back fence neighbor" and I don't get along very well so I'd never be asking for permission to detect there. Probably nothing of interest over there, anyway. It was county land and the original owners of the housing development I live in were told it would always be county land so they would always have access out their back yards. Then somehow this guy finagled the county to sell it to him for his large animal veterinary office and orchard. And access for his neighbors was not part of the sale. They gave me such a bad time when I needed a new septic tank put in that it's left some "bad blood" between us. And his wife is worse! They don't get along with anyone in the neighborhood. So this "remedy" is more than just coyote deterant. It's kind of a "statement!" But I've got to check with my gardner to see how long it's been since he's "treated" the area. I've been seeing coyotes come by regularly lately.

    I haven't seen them first hand, but have heard about bands of domestic dogs gone wild - and it ain't pretty! Many domestic stock was taken down by them. As for kitties, not so much. But my sister has had to live with wild parrots in her area where domesticated parrots get lose, find others of their kind, breed and really make a ruckus! Not harmful, but pretty AND pretty noisy!
