    Families in a Washington state community have noticed an uptick in coyote sightings lately. Within a 24-hour span, the city of Snoqualmie received seven reports of coyotes in the area—including an attack on a 3-year-old girl while she was on her porch, according to KCPQ.

The little girl was outside with her father on the front porch of their home. Lucas was up on...

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement has arrested more than 400 people in an operation targeting undocumented parents and guardians who allegedly paid smugglers to bring their children to the U.S., putting them in grave danger. An ICE spokesman tells NPR the domestic phase of its Human Smuggling Disruption Initiative concluded on Friday. He said the "surge initiative" will now shift its focus to the transnational smuggling organizations that bring the children to the U.S.-Mexico border. The operation, which uses immigrant children to target their sponsors in the U.S., has been controversial. Immigrant advocates complain it is hampering efforts to reunite families....

    SALMON, Idaho (Reuters) - A "cyanide bomb" planted by U.S. predator-control agents targeting coyotes near homes and hiking trails in Idaho exploded when a boy handled the device, injuring him and killing his dog, authorities and relatives said on Friday. Canyon Mansfield, 14, was playing with his yellow Labrador retriever, Casey, on Thursday afternoon near his home east of Pocatello when he saw what he thought was a sprinkler head on the ground and touched the device, causing it to detonate. The explosion sprayed the boy and his 3-year-old, 90-pound (40 kg) pet with toxic cyanide gas, according to the...

    Donkeys hate coyotes, so much so that they sometimes go postal on intruding 'yotes like this donkey did. South Carolina landowner Steve Hipps has a grass pasture in his backyard that's guarded by a donkey named Buck. Buck used to share the pasture with a female donkey, but when she had babies, Hipps decided to let Buck have it all to himself. "I just wanted something in there to keep the grass eaten down, and I've always loved donkeys," Hipps told Georgia Outdoor News. But Hipps got more than a grass muncher; he got a coyote killing machine. Read the...

    Lights along the highway from farmers’ fields in Emerson, Manitoba, west of the border. The taxi stopped at the side of the I-29 interstate after cruising north for about an hour. Their $400 in the cabbie’s pocket, he dropped off Seidu Mohammed and Razak Iyal a two-minute drive short of the North Dakota-Manitoba line. The driver pointed the men toward a darkened prairie field and a row of red blinking lights, wind turbines in the distance. Walk toward those lights, and they could grasp freedom. “We didn’t feel any sign, but we could feel we are in Canada, because of...

    When coyotes pack up, big game is no match for these killers. Witness this stunning game camera footage of a whole pack of coyotes on the hunt. Seeing fewer deer this season? Well a coyote pack this size or larger just may be devouring your game. A single coyote is a formidable predator. Now, combine multiple coyotes, and their killing power increases to large game with no issues. At least eight coyotes by our count make their way down this trail in search of prey. Now, that is a team of killers with a swagger. See the video here.

    The Coyote Principle California The Governor of California is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks the Governor's dog, then bites the Governor. The Governor starts to intervene, but reflects upon the movie "Bambi" and then realizes he should stop because the coyote is only doing what is natural. He calls animal control. Animal Control captures the coyote and bills the state $200 testing it for diseases and $500 for relocating it. He calls a veterinarian. The vet collects the dead dog and bills the State $200 testing it for diseases. The Governor...

    Coyotes will hurt our Deer Hunting With the rise of coyote population, Quality Deer Managment Association data shows that 75 percent of the coyote population needs to be removed annually to control their population. But the reality is that hunting coyotes isn’t going to make a dent in decreasing their population due too many coyotes out there. Some hunters and land owners have talked of trapping, localized areas have had some successes. Trapping is still hard due to resource, man power and gasoline. Someone has to get out there and check the traps in the areas. Despite the efforts our...

    A Milton man chased down a coyote to help save his family’s dog from a potentially deadly attack. Early Saturday morning, the small dog named Cally was outside in her backyard when a coyote attacked her and opened gaping wounds. The coyote then ran away with Cally still in its mouth. Ryan Labbe says his father then chased down the coyote and saved his pet’s life. “It attacked her first in the abdomen,” Ryan said. “But she managed to get away somehow. Then it attacked her again and went right for her neck, picked her up and ran down the...

    It is rare for a new animal species to emerge in front of scientists’ eyes. But this seems to be happening in eastern North America. ___ Like some people who might rather not admit it, wolves faced with a scarcity of potential sexual partners are not beneath lowering their standards. It was desperation of this sort, biologists reckon, that led dwindling wolf populations in southern Ontario to begin, a century or two ago, breeding widely with dogs and coyotes. The clearance of forests for farming, together with the deliberate persecution which wolves often suffer at the hand of man, had...

    Police caught another not-so-wily coyote Saturday morning in lower Manhattan after a nearly hour-long pursuit, officials said. The critter was first spotted around 7:30 a.m. in Battery Park City, police said. Cops quickly responded, chasing after the fast-moving critter on foot and in police cruisers, authorities said. The coyote was eventually cornered near a cafe at North Cove Marina about an hour after being first spotted, cops said. Police shot the animal with tranquilizer darts, placed it in a cage and brought it to Animal Care & Control’s East Harlem facility. It is unclear if the coyote captured Saturday was...

She has reason to be nervous. Stories abound in nearby Orange County of dogs and cats snatched...

    Real-life wild dogs are on the prowl in San Francisco, which has itself a coyote problem. "More than 100" coyotes are alive in well in the City by the Bay, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, which notes a marked increase -- there was just 15 "a little more than a year ago," according to outdoors writer Tom Stienstra. That figure is based on "crops of pups" as well as a field study and photography by Natures Lantern, the newspaper reported. Coyotes have been seen crossing busy streets like Sunset Boulevard, and have been seen in populated areas from Telegraph...

Johnson says sharpshooters would likely be sent to certain wooded areas and fields to shoot and kill the coyotes. “We would not like to kill everything, but we definitely want to lessen the population,” Johnson told the paper. Princeton uses...

    WESTMINSTER (CBSLA.com) — A family’s dog is recovering after being attacked by coyotes in the family’s back yard.

Deputies believe at least two coyotes attacked the dog after jumping the yard’s fence. Neighbors, meanwhile, say that coyote attacks are no rare accidents in their neighborhood, suggesting that they come from a field near the school. “There’s a little farm just about a block away, and they lost...

The latest example comes from Midtown Atlanta, where one resident spotted and photographed a coyote. ... "Whenever they do drop down, they rebound really quick. Sixty to 80 percent of the adult female coyotes are going to have pups every year," said Elliot. Elliot warns don't be fooled by the animal's appearance; coyotes are natural predators and small pets have become prey, so he advises to be careful especially if your pets spend a lot of time outside.
