    Folks around our place carry Bear spray. Coyotes have been a real problem for dog walkers for the past couple of years. Despite the new-home construction around these parts,there's still tons of open fields and bush for Coyotes to live in. We've even had a couple of Bears around just this spring and summer (between Courtice- Bowmanville.)
    It's better to walk alone than with a crowd going in the wrong direction.

    I like the part where they say "throw rocks and branches at the ground near the coyote"
    God forbid that you might hit the poor coyote!
    Every article from coyote lovers to coyote haters agrees that they're an INVASIVE SPECIE.
    Why do the coyote lovers (animal lovers) only love coyotes and not Norway rats!
    WHAT? rats have rights too y'know! They're smart and warm blooded and feel pain.
    I have yet to meet any really TRUE animal lovers. Most are very hypocritical. They seem to pick and choose which animals they champion.

    Anyway I have been around a while and seen what game populations are today as compared to pre 1980's before the coyotes showed up.

    I say kill'em all .... by any means!

    LOL. It's not uncommon to be in our local Timmies line up and seeing one or two Yotes trying to figure out how to get into the garbage bins.

    So you can hire the people from "Urban Coyote Initiative" to do professional photographs. I wonder if they would hire themselves out photoshoot with coyote hunters as they state their collaborations include "anything else you might dream up". I wonder what their monetary threshold would be to compromise their morals.

    I agree with controlling yotes in the wild; but in an urban setting they are helpful in controlling the cat population, another urban pest. Cat are responsible for the threatened extinction of various song birds, let the coyote keep the cat population under control.

    Perhaps the people who don't want to injure the coyote should do what some communities have started to do with wild cats... capture and neuter them.

    Unfortunately there is unwanted interaction between coyote and dogs, can't always blame the yotes, some people's dogs look like cats.😁

    Seriously, I don't care what-so-ever about cats whether they be wild or domestic that people let roam. Cats should be treated with the same rules as dogs, leashed, tagged, under control. If people had their dogs under control some interaction between coyote and dogs could be avoided. And as noted already we need to consider taking spray along with us when we walk. I do feel for those whose dogs have been killed or injured, my dog is my best friend.
