The coyote expressed its gratitude by eating the man’s pet Chihuahua.

I once saw a shaggy dog with a mayo jar on his head. When I realized it was a coyote, I walked away

I thought this was about a border guard pulling a Mexican trafficker out of the Rio Grande.

Beat me to it.

In other news, marine biologists in Florida returned a nine foot great white shark to its natural habitat (true fact).

And the chief biologist, who was physically involved in the release of the shark, is now known as “Lefty”.

There are predators and pests. If he wanted to help it the humane thing to do would be shoot it and put it out of our misery.

According to Florida Nuisance Wildlife Regulations, the coyote may not be relocated and released as described in the feel-good news story.

Only native species of wildlife may be released. Armadillos, coyotes
and muscovy ducks are not native wildlife.

Armadillos, coyotes
and muscovy ducks are not native wildlife....nor iguanas, boas,pythons and anacondas; all of which hang out in FL.

I once saw a skunk with a Yoplait Yogurt cup over its head, This was before the carton had rims that allowed an animal to pull it off its head. I carefully approached the skunk (which couldn’t see me because of the carton on its head), quicky reached down, and pulled the carton off its head. It quickly scurried off.

Rescued a coyote? huh?

I shoot every coyote I see. My horses have stomped several into grease spots. I regularly lure them into range. I took out a pack of 7 with a bud and hellfire triggers on SKS's.

Rescue vermin? What's up with that? No kitty kats and small dogs missing in your hood?

The little trickster is well adapted to every envirorment we present to them.

Our immediate neighborhood has red fox. Foxes and coyotes typically don’t prowl the same territory. Coyotes are north, south and east of here.

Coyotes here in the valley are such a nuisance there are regular warnings about leaving pets and livestock unattended or unsecured in any way.

Coyotes will jump right over those 5' CBS walls everyone has built around their homes. The feel initially like castle walls but do nothing to stop predators, only slow them down momentarily. A hungry 'yote will make fast food out of any small pet or animal left outside uncaged.

I will make the observation for additional impact. In all my time in the valley, I have not seen any roaming dogs or cats in my area. That's either a testament to the understanding of my neighbors of the threat or the hunting ability of these pests.

I have done that, too.

That was the night I knew I could never get a job on a bomb squad.

Too nervous.

We dispatched 3 coyotes on our ranch last week. Not good to have around your baby calves.

We saw a cat on the side of the road with a glass jar on it’s head. We broke the jar and the cat took off.

It was a plastic jar and a coyote. I really didn’t care.

The coyote lives, but who knows what it will kill next. I have to ‘guard’ my Yorkie outside at night time from critters like that.

Joe - as an aside - I laughed my head off at seeing your doggie ping image on the thread of the FReeper looking for a girlfriend!! ‘woof, woof’, lol.

I understand, I wouldn't really care either, but I would prefer a more humane death for the coyote. But I guess you weren't packin’.

Nope and it was in city limits. A cop rolled up soon but I don’t think they found it.
