Hello?

Hello Wauf
My parents (midwestern) suburban neighborhood has a problem with a few coyotes
I want to help them but I don't live on this continent
I can whip up some devices to track and possibly stun the things without too much effort but i have no idea what's the legality of zapping the frickers and smashing their brains in with a rock (i was told you can't just shoot them? but i don't know if that's actually true)

do you guys have any insight on these frickers? if they somehow kill one of my dogs i will end up genociding their entire species.

    What are the coyotes doing that is a problem? There are lots of management options depending on what the issue is.

      existing
      they kill dogs (i am told/others believe)

      >Suburbanites can not possibly have a problem with coyotes. If they have chickens for some fricking reason, they should be fully enclosed to keep them off other peoples property. If they have dogs, they should follow leash laws and not leave them outside to bark 24/7. If they have cats, those belong inside.

If yotes bother a suburbaNPC, they are actually solving someone elses problem. They're only a nuisance for farmers who actually raise animals for a living and need their chickens alive to pay the fricking bills, people who live way out and can graze livestock (and have to) without them bothering another man on his own damn land.
      my mom worries about them killing our ~10-15lb dogs, and other neighbors hate them too. they live in some forested area on a neighbors lot. what's hard to believe?

      also one of them saw it and is now obsessed with it, every time he goes out at night he's looking for it

        Coyotes do kill dogs, if boot dogs are left outside unsupervised at night. It’s not actually a big problem. My neighbors had a whole pack of Chihuahuas for years with a Coyote pack denning on literally the same block we lived on. Don’t let the dog out at night unless you are going out too, and don’t force the dog to go out when it is afraid to.

        Anyways, coyotes are notoriously hard to trap, any trap you, as an EE, make, is more likely to kill your own pets. The best/most effective controls are poisoning and shooting, but poisoning coyotes causes a lot of bycatch because coyotes are more cautious scavengers than basically everything else, and shooting is legally hazardous in town.

        Really the best thing you can do is be a good dog owner, but the second best thing you can do is find out where the coyotes den in February and make them feel unsafe there so they move on.

        I grew up in a fairly rural area of NYS where we have coywolves and could hear them sperging out all the time at night. We had a tiny little maltise poodle, didn't leash him when we let him out to do his business, but we just watched him whenever he was out there.
        Never had a coyote even fricking look in his direction, quite frankly we were more worried about hawks than yotes.
        If a suburbanite somehow has an issue with yotes, it means they're doing something very, very wrong.

          I used to know a guy who used a wienerapoo as live bait when hunting coyotes. He was pretty effective. I figure that any dog under 20 lbs, especially ones which are overbred and not physically fit, is at theoretical risk from coyotes, but I’ve never lost a pet to a coyote that wasn’t a chicken or a cat, personally.

            Losing a cat is somehow less important than losing a dog to you?

              Perhaps. I grew up with barn cats and barn cats are a step up from a hamster as a pet. Most of the reason why I don't have a cat now is because of the bad experiences I had growing up with barn cats. I had barn cats that I'd named get killed by wandering toms, hawks, owls, eagles, coyotes, horses, cows, hay mowers, chewing live electrical circuits which were just romex with no conduit, etc. By the time I was 10, losing a cat meant that I was going to give a name to my next favorite young cat (and there was always more young cats), and little else; maybe I dug a hole if there was enough remains to bury (often there was little to no remains to be found). I was 30 before I'd lost 6 dogs and that includes the 2 dogs that were already on the farm when I was born, I'd lost that many cats I'd named by 2nd grade, so obviously the dogs affect me more. My laying hens have a longer average lifespan than my childhood cats,.

              I haven't owned a cat since I left home, and I never will. Owning an indoor cat is burdensome in my opinion and outdoor cats are shitty stewardship of both the animal you own and the environment around you.

        If you can program, you could make a trap that is turned on my motion sensors, distinguishes coyotes, and lights them up with a water blast or an airsoft or something. Check out Turnah81 for inspiration.

        You could even use pepperballs in an e-trigger paintball gun if you wanted to go ham.

        Be warned if you’re not good at coding it might target your pets too.

        Coyotes do not kill dogs, that is a myth. Whoever told you that is spewing bullshit.

          Coyotes do kill dogs though.

          Just generally not anything other than toy breeds, and even then not as frequently as they eat cats, etc.

          >inb4 hurr durr, toy dogs are yapping rats not dogs

            if a hawk is a natural predator to your fully grown dog you do not have a dog, you have a yapping rat

    The most humane way to get rid of coyotes is shooting them but since you're in a suburban neighborhood you can't just pick them off with a .22. The best thing to do would be for your parents to contact the city they live in and complain about said coyotes so they can either relocate them (they won't) or they can shoot them.

      any pitbull that will kill coyotes will also kill family dogs and children. they are worthless animals and any pitbull not currently in a dogfight, in a cage, or on a chain should be euthanized ASAP.

      i am pretty sure i can kill them without a gun, i can rig up stupid shit since i'm an EE. i'm thinking taze them and smash its skull in with a rock, although idk how hard it will be to smash it, i never killed anything before.

    Look up the laws on nuisance animals in that state. For me in Texas, I can legally kill nuisance animals, including coyotes, on my land without permit or limit.
    Since you're dealing with a suburban neighborhood, firearms are likely off limits. Your best option is to trap the coyote. Scrap meat or chicken bones or whatever with a spring trap overnight will do the trick.

      well frick i'm moronic
      i was thinking of a lidar + strobe flash + dslr camera solution and then maybe shooting a tazer or crossbow at them, some legal shit

      it looks like in wisconsin it's outright legal to hunt them so it shouldn't be too much issue

      Suburbanites can not possibly have a problem with coyotes. If they have chickens for some fricking reason, they should be fully enclosed to keep them off other peoples property. If they have dogs, they should follow leash laws and not leave them outside to bark 24/7. If they have cats, those belong inside.

      There is absolutely no way for coyotes to cause trouble for anyone who is not being a worthless fricking homosexual and ruining things for someone else in the fricking suburbs. If yotes bother a suburbaNPC, they are actually solving someone elses problem. They're only a nuisance for farmers who actually raise animals for a living and need their chickens alive to pay the fricking bills, people who live way out and can graze livestock (and have to) without them bothering another man on his own damn land.

      If you are not on agricultural land and private, posted property that is a great way to lose your entire estate being sued over a 5 year old's ankle, or lose a very flammable roof or breakable car over a dog.

        my mom worries about them killing our ~10-15lb dogs, and other neighbors hate them too. they live in some forested area on a neighbors lot. what's hard to believe?
