Wow, I had no idea Coyotes were that aggressive, I wonder if there was a chance they were rabid or something? Probably not since it was two of them attacking. Scary, I hope the girl will be ok.

Re: Here's another good reason why I hate coyotes

It's gotten so bad around here I don't want to go for a walk with the dogs after dark. The cat used to go down the road to catch mice now she just hangs around close to the house.
You can hear the darn things yipping in the field behind the house.
AUHHH!

Re: Here's another good reason why I hate coyotes

Coyotes are brutal killers. Before the premature death of my little pard, he was the top coyote hunter on the plains of Western Kansas and SE Colorado.
The ranchers have to use coyote hunters to keep them from destroying their calves.
The Coyote Hunters use Greyhounds as chase dogs, and then use a kill dog to end it.

Re: Here's another good reason why I hate coyotes

One of my neighbors walks her dogs before dawn, and she saw a coyote wandering down the street one day while she was walking one of the dogs. It paid no attention to her or her dog thankfully.

There was also a news article about a woman whose dog (miniature Poodle, about 20 lbs IIRC) was attacked by a coyote while she was walking it ON LEASH in a mall parking lot about a mile from my house. The coyote grabbed the dog and would not let go. The woman finally beat it off with a shopping bag. The dog was injured but recovered. That happened a few years ago.

There was a recent study about urban coyotes done here in Chicago. 200 coyotes were caught and tagged within Chicago for the multi-year study. The researchers estimated there were several hundred up to a thousand coyotes living in Chicago! They found that coyotes were everywhere in the city.

I guess it shouldn't have been as much of a surprise then when a coyote wandered into a Quiznos in the middle of the city (in the Loop, what is often referred to as downtown) a year or two ago... It was a young male. The coyote just sauntered right in and hopped into a drink cooler for a rest! Animal Control was able to safely trap it and release it elsewhere.



I guess you could say he was "chillin'"

Re: Here's another good reason why I hate coyotes

Why didn't they just shoot it?
Instead they drop it off to be someone elses headache.

Re: Here's another good reason why I hate coyotes

Driving down the main street in a town up north it was 12:30 on a friday afternoon and there was a coyote standing in the middle of the road. Didn't care that there were cars swerving around it.

Re: Here's another good reason why I hate coyotes

I didn't see if it said the woman would be ok or not other than the bites were "serious"...I do hope she's ok...that being said....

I guess I'm the only person who likes/has a respect for coyotes. This wasn't even some wild attack where the coyotes were in her yard or town...she was hiking in a National Park. Predators live and hunt there its a risk you take when hiking outdoors. No telling how starved those coyotes were to attack a human...coyotes attacking humans are far more rare than dog attacks. I get why farmers hate coyotes but I don't blame coyotes for looking for a free meal either. Are you guys aware that there are coyote killing contests? that is sick....Do you guys know about Charlie the coyote? check him out here The Daily Coyote I'm not sure if the 1st posts are there or her old site HERE
