Coyotes lurking in the woods in Massachusetts have been known to attack dogs, chickens, cats, and even, in rare instances, people. But a buffalo ?...
A pack of coyotes entered a pen where his 14 buffalos grazed. When they were done, one was missing...All that was left was skin and bone, said Kimball, who was keeping watch over the pen today as the herd huddled together and grazed on grass.
After the coyote attack, he vowed to be vigilant in protecting the animals armed, if necessary. Im going to come out here with my gun, and if I see one, Ill shoot it, he said.
Its not the first incident involving a coyote in Haverhill in recent years.

say, did you ever live near Haverhill?
Probably in Plastered NH.
As their numbers dwindled, wolves were absorbed into the coyote population.
Two words.... PIT BULLS....
We have a den near us.
It is only going to get worse. Just like the beavers! When they get a kid(and it might have already happened ) then they will lif the leg hold trap ban!
not my fault, sorry...
Wolf or coyote? Genetics tell complicated tale
Taylor Mitchell, 19, was recently killed by coyotes in Cape Breton Highlands National Park in Nova Scotia .
I doubt pit bulls would do much with the Eastern Coyote except for providing a lunch. Only dogs that will work are livestock guarding dogs (multiples thereof with spiked collars). Eastern coyotes can weigh about 50 lbs so several territorial dogs that are much larger are needed - Maremmas or Akbash or other mastiff derived breeds.
Coyotes don't interbreed with dogs. Dogs cannot survive in the wild because they have pups at all times of the year.
The old "coy-dog" label was never true.
The coyotes were interbreeding with wolves.
Many of our neighbors keep donkeys with their cows. Works like a charm.
Then there’s the neighbor in the bottoms with a 200 head Boer herd. And two Pyrennese on watch 24/7/365, I think the only true working dogs I have seen around here.
