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!Best finds: GOLD - One 14k wedding band, one 18k pinky ring, one 2.5 gram 14k religious medal, one 10k child's ring with 5 stones: SILVER - One 42 gram chain, one 12 gram bracelet, one heart with glass stones; small child's bracelet with inlaid mother of pearl; COINS - One 1947 Wheat Penny;

If the Gardner doea that too often, it will get quite smelly back there We have a bounty on Coyotes here, so if they came to my back fence,,, $$$$$$$$Ineptocracy [in-ep-toc'-ra-cy] - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

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!Best finds: GOLD - One 14k wedding band, one 18k pinky ring, one 2.5 gram 14k religious medal, one 10k child's ring with 5 stones: SILVER - One 42 gram chain, one 12 gram bracelet, one heart with glass stones; small child's bracelet with inlaid mother of pearl; COINS - One 1947 Wheat Penny;

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...

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.
