Our female rescue greyhound would have defended us, I think.
First Yote I saw in East Tennessee was over 25 years ago in a remote area. A couple years ago I was up behind my house deer hunting and at about daybreak one cut loose calling. I've heard several more since then and some friends I let hunt my place have had visuals. I'm thinking about going Yote fishing LOL.
Not in New England. Ours are hybrids of Canada timber wolves and western coyotes. We had one male come through our yard that was easily sixty pounds.
The problem with this new hybrid coyote is how smart they are, and how much they seem to hate domestic dogs.
Male dogs are extremely vulnerable, as coyotes will use a female coyote in heat to lure in a dog, and then the whole pack jumps him.
They gang up on a single dog, so several smaller coyotes can bring down a good size dog. Someone up thread mentioned two pit bulls getting killed by coyotes. I’ll bet they were chained up and not able to assist each other. Having more than one dog can help even the odds, as long as they can fight together.
I watch some of the Alaska shows on Discovery/Nat Geo like Yukon Men and Life Below Zero. I think one mentioned a good wolf pelt can fetch $1,000.
I wonder what a good hybrid coyote pelt (esp a winter coat)?
These eastern coys are no joke.
We have a lot of them in my neighborhood. The ones by me live in Griffith Park [just blocks away] which is the nation’s largest city park. They walk along the LA River, just 2 blocks from my house, and just come into the neighborhood.
About dusk, they roam all over the streets and yards and prey on both cats and dogs. A couple of months ago one killed a large yellow cat on my front lawn. It looked horrible with the field of debris several feet across. My neighbor found the front part of a cat on his lawn.
But there are stories of coyotes attacking people who are actively walking dogs.
I want one LOL.
I'm guessing likely not that much since there is an over abundance of them.
Throughout the wild fur sale, Hong Kong/China was exceptionally active, but in many articles, we also enjoyed strong support from Russia and Greece. In the exclusive fashion category, we still saw excellent buying from the top fashion houses in Europe and North America. NAFAs wild fur promotion has been an important factor in increasing Chinas buying of wild fur. It was only a few years ago that China showed very limited interest in wild fur. Today, with the huge amount that NAFA has now cumulatively invested in wild fur promotion, this has all completely changed. We have to recognize that fur is in fashion in China, where up until now, ranch raised mink was their number one article. Without NAFAs wild fur promotional programs, it would not have been possible to sell articles like Fisher, Sable and most of the Raccoon into this important market at these levels. Coupled with the coldest winter in 28 years in China, this has created an unbelievably strong fur market.
Coyotes sold exceptionally well with Italy, Canada and China competing aggressively for all sections. Premiums were paid throughout for heavier, better quality Westerns, which averaged $93.98 with the Top Lot sold for $1,400.00.
Seems to me with an increasingly cold planet and colder winters, coupled with a growing China and economically stagnant America, a Yankee especially could make some good cash selling coyote. I'm not sure an Alabama coyote would have a thick winter coat, so I probably won't do so (but they're legal to hunt here year round), but if you Northerners can make some money and reduce these critters some, why not make some cash doing so?
The first American flag ships (Lady Washington & Columbia)
to visit the West Coast of North America came to trade metal & trinkets with the natives for furs. The furs were taken to China and traded for tea, which they brought back to North East Coast US. 1787 to 1793
History repeating, kind of.
I’d be happy just to be rid of them. I don’t know if this is fact but I’ve heard to get rid of them shoot the females only. You take out the male and the females go into heat and a new Alpha male takes it’s place plus a bunch of offspring.
That makes a lot of sense. Maybe I’ll do some coyote hunting.
I've read that their bite force is quite strong. Enough to break smaller bones.
