Thread: Walking your dog in coyote areas

    Someone lost their dog just a few km's down the road from me a couple of months ago. Personally I feel coyotes know the high traffic areas. I'm a little more remote and have trails in my backyard, but I'm one of the only people in my area (one of about 16 homes) that walks their dog back there. In other words, not a high odds area for coyotes waiting for a dog meal.

There were five of them with the alpha male in the lead causing all the trouble. As soon as the riders got by me,I dropped the alpha,re-chambered and dropped the closest behind it. The rest scattered. I got two more shots off,but,missed both. The horse riders kept on going without sticking around,but,there was a trail of blood all the way up the trail back to the trailer park area.
    First i would bet the horses did not startle too much at the sound of the rifle, second I would have loved to be a fly on the wall back at the parking lot and the ride to the vet/home.

    Wonder what thoughts were going through their minds as they replayed the events over a couple strong drinks.

    There was a 11-12 year old girls riding a pony a few years ago in the field( 9 to 10 acre backyard)behind her grandparents place. Two Coyotes surprised them and the pony threw her and ran. Coyotes took off after the pony, but turned and went for the girl after she started scream in pain from a broken arm. It took both parents and her grandfather to keep the coyotes off, and they followed them all the way to the house.

    Pony ran into the barn, and three horses and a pony was more then the coyotes could handle so they left.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    The horses didn't seem to notice the rifle crack and the riders had their hands full trying to keep them "in hand" and get them out of the area. I've often wondered the same thing,about what they may have thought afterward,but,if the horses needed immediate care,I can certainly understand their priorities. Member's who use the area at any given time have permits prominently affixed to vehicles with identifiers readily available. I'm kind of surprised that I have never had any feedback.

    I bet they still go to meetings to try to get hunting banned from the forest.

    I've been to a fair number of meetings,so,I have a good idea of who those players are. There's several who show up every so often,stand and speak their blather until many others tell them to shut up and sit down. They always never stick around after to talk,either,pathetic little cowards that they are,especially,after I and/or several others have gone out of our way offering specific invitations. They turn tail and skulk out with slouched shoulders before the meeting is over. They're membership addresses are all from Toronto,so,it's not rocket science to know what horse shyte they're up to. There's no doubt in my mind that if there was no opposition to these miscreants along with the huge amount of permit and membership money from hunters and the financial support from OFAH,hunting would have been banned in those forests long ago.

    That’s really brazen behaviour by the coyotes, I never imagined they’d be nipping at horses while they were being ridden.

    I bet those riders had a helluva story that they’re still telling....

    The coyotes were just acting like coyotes. giving chase when something runs away from them.
    This has happened to someone I know very well, what they did was just stopped the horses, turned them around and gave chase to the coyotes which then turned tail and ran away.

    2 years ago I was doing some pre deer season scouting, watching a doe with 2 fawns feeding in the field when a buck came out and started walking toward the doe. She put her head down and was running the buck off when 2 coyotes came out. She stopped, gave a warning to her fawns who took off into the bush, then she ran the coyotes into the bush as well. Within 3 seconds that doe came flying out of the bush with both coyotes on her heels running her to the opposite side of the field. This gave me time to get my rifle out of the truck and a few minutes later the fawns were back looking for mom. The coyotes came back from chasing the doe off sneaking across the field within 50 yards of the fawns. I put the hurt on the one that walked up the hill a bit and gave me a shot but the second one stayed along the long grass and I couldn't get a shot. It was a lot more excitement than I was expecting to have that evening.

    Good stuff, if you hadn't done it they probably would have killed the fawns.
