Coyotes will also kill nasty humans.
The problem comes when lil precious spits out a litter, nobody wants them, so they throw them in a box, drive them to the country and dump them in front of the first farm they see.
“Oh lookie, a barn, farmers love cats.” Er..No we don't!
Farmers often have to shoot batches of cats that get dropped off several times a year. The ones that don't get shot go wild and wind up getting shot or eaten by something else anyway.
