Default coyotes + kids....................

I know a guy in southern Alberta[Medicine Hat] that was in the process of building a house with a semi-fenced back yard.He was mostly working outside so he could keep an eye on his toddler that was playing on a swing set out back.The day was uneventful and he had to step inside to get something for a second and he was quite horrified to see a large coyote 6 feet away from his kid sitting on it's haunches watching the child swing back and forth .Debating ,should I or shouldn't I? The father let fly with the hammer and the coyote suddenly remembered he had an appointment elsewhere.No doubt in my mind what he was thinking.100% opportunist! Too bad he didn't have a gun.Harold

That's quite a story, never heard anything like that. They have some serious coyote numbers up there in portions of Canada... from what i hear.

In the fall deer gut piles are gone in a matter of a couple of hours. The coyotes are quite brazen and numerous enough to be heard howling at night pretty much anywhere including within city limits.............Harold

That would be pretty scary to see something like that - I'm glad the child wasn't attacked. Yotes are getting more brave each year....

I threw a 4# hammer at one while he was running.The head landed in front of him and the handle knocked him out!

In Banff National Park ,hikers thought it was cute to feed the coyotes sandwiches from their daypacks.[shown on the news]Then after the problem was created and everyone didn't feed them ,they became aggressive and several pulbic hiking trails had to be temporarily closed.Totally preventable but my favorite one is the Japanese tourist following the grizzly down the ditch about 10 feet behind trying to get him in the viewfinder of his camera.Lucky for him it didn't have cubs and was semi-tolerant of idiots.Harold* Hollywood has city coyotes eating garbage and cats .Brazil has jaguars in Rio de Janeiro picking off stray dogs.

Ya,there was a guy a couple years ago hunting cougars with dogs in either CA or CO that treed a Jaguar and took pics to prove it.They used to be in Texas as well and I think there's still some in Old Mexico.The last grizzly was shot in Mexico in the early 40's.Kinda cool..................Harold [The eastern cougar is also coming back]
