There's an article in the newspaper today about a dog in our town who was attacked by a coyote. It was a 10 yr old deaf lab, doing it's business in it's yard at 8 AM with the owner watching from her deck. The coyote came out of the woods and attacked the dog. Luckily only a small cut - nothing major. The owner screamed, the coyote ran away, only to come back later to watch from the woods. Just a warning that it's coyote mating season, and they are very territorial. We never let Haylie out alone - very scarey! Agnes

We are in rural Minnesota, with our land backing up to a state wildlife refuge. We never let our small dogs our alone. We have not seen the coyotes near the house, but we hear them frequently and I found a leg bone from a deer close to the house a couple of months age.

If it ever thaws out up here, we are going to put in a 6 ft chain link fence with coyote rollers at the top AND we are looking for a large dog to add to the pack to protect the little ones.

Haylie, take Agnes into a different room. Stare into her eyes as only you can. Explain to her how you can make coyotes run in terror just by looking at them. Demonstrate this with a big Whoof. If this doesn't work then call Orson. You still have his phone number from the last secret meeting, right?

Shhh. Don't tell anyone about the secret meetings. If these humans figure this out, we are in deep stuff.

We know that feeling. We about 2 miles off the pavement in western Arizona and we never let the hounds out with at least one of us with them. When we see the rabbits hightailing it by the house it usually means one or more coyotes are near by.

Doc, you crack me up as usual![emoticon] I wish someday we could meet and discuss how crazy each other is.[emoticon]

We have plenty of coyote around here, but Gen. Gretchen doesn't pay them much mind unless there is the clear and present danger of Darkness and Evil afoot! The coyote are our allies at those times.

Where is Orson's picture??!! We will be needing him very soon!!!

Live out side a small town. Not reall rural. I have never heard or seen them but know they are there. The neighbor lady. heard her dogs making a racket, looked out the window, saw 3 coyotes carring off a litter of kittens. she went out but they were gone. We have lots of rabbits and deer around also. The deer ate all the gardens last year. Was first time this had happened. Love the wildlife.

IMO a 6 foot fence will not even slow a coyote down. I suggest 8 foot, unless the rollers you mentioned are an additional 2 feet tall. Coyotes do not bother our German Shepherds. I worry more about bears and mountain lions, both of which we see around here, but we've been here over 16 years and no problems yet. Our outside run for night time potty breaks has an 8 foot fence.

Chuck, you're right about the fence. My daughter lives in Colorado and she has coyotes come right over her 6 foot wood fence to try to get at her dogs. She has to be very careful when she lets them out.
