Animals and their Relation to Gods, Humans and Things in the Ancient World

What dd hit the press about six or so years ago was then Texas Gov Rick Perry shooting a coyote when out walking his dog.
The animal rights activists were about as outraged as the gun control types. No big cities to coddle idiots, though even so we have some, mostly in our bigger towns and some union bastions even in rural areas. When you need to shoot a lion or bear in town now and then, it kind of puts the damper on peta and gun control types. Seems like even here, though, the media moguls, such as they are, are all lefties. And even here people are people and with a high proportion of government employment, and the natural propensity for folks to want free shit, even our supposedly Republican government is not really very conservative with people voting for cowboy hats and pretty faces.
But it is continually getting worse, just like Texas. We need a Rick Perry. And, of course, all bets are off for Jackson, WY, which is a suburb of Hollywood with Cody quickly catching up.

People were not meant to live on top of each other. Coyotes, lions and bears are just fine. I was going to counter with Jackson….. Discourage your dogs from romantic liasions with the coyotes…..

It is possible the coyotes have not allowed the fox population to recover. Raccoons are probe to a nasty parvovirus…. Epilogue: Great first-hand and eye-witness reports from all over the US and Canada, including interesting stories. Appreciate all of you whom have added to the conversation. One of my sweetest dachsies had a litter overnight, in her birthing box. When I went to check on them so see if all was well, she nearly took one of my fingers off.
I never made that mistake again. Many readers report coyotes hunting in packs — a wolf-like behavior — not generally associated with coyotes which are more likely to hunt as individuals or mated pairs. Feral dogs also are known to hunt in packs. More research over the years will give us better insight into the behavior patterns of coyotes and their various hybrids.
I hope that this opportunity to comment about coyotes on-topic has satisfied those readers who have needed to comment about them repeatedly…. Packing up is standard coyote behavior. Always has been and always will be. Especially in winter, when they hunt larger game rather than relying on smaller prey. Same goes for partnering with badgers. Coyotes or something very like them are the ancestor of wolves. Dogs do indeed pack up.

Finally got permission to shoot some of the wolves which have been released into my AO. The wonderful thing about imported wolves is that they wear radio collars. Thus I can watch them watching me. Here is a photo of some coyotes on the ice of Lake Revelstoke eying some deer that they have herded on to the ice. Locally, in town, many cats and small dogs have been taken by coyotes and a woman was attacked and injured while defending her dog.
Just for clarity here are the mule deer that the coyotes had herded on to the ice. Suppose if I was smart I would have combined it into the same post. Reposted in correct spot. From what I can tell they like to herd deer on to the ice where slipping and falling can be fatal with a pack of hungry predators circling. This shot was late in the season with lots of snow on the ice making for better traction, but the new danger is breaking through the ice. Since deer are more likely to break through the ice than wolves or coyotes, the predators take advantage and hope for ready meal. Bear in mind that coyotes in the same area are liable to be related or at least know each other.
And a pack can be litter mates. Initially, the two coyotes were close to the deer, who were nervously looking over their shoulders in the opposite direction.
The coyotes then ran towards me and the deer also moved closer. Yet you can see some of the deer locking back, which indicates to me that there was something else they were watching — likely more coyotes. Also of note was that this was midday and usually you never see coyotes or wolves since its open season on these guys. As is par for this type of thing a B. Conservation Service spokesperson Alicia Stark said that officials were running DNA tests to confirm it [a coyote tracked and shot] was the same animal that attacked the toddler.
Coyotes attacks on humans are increasing. In the 30 years leading up to March of , at least attacks happened in the US.
While only 41 attacks happened in the almost ten years between and , there were 48 attacks verified in the five years to It should be noted that the majority of these instances happened in southern California, close to the suburban areas that border wilderness. To stalk humans, coyotes often work in teams, as they do when hunting other larger prey, attacking from the rear and flanks. Some of their successful, persistent hunts will last as long as 20 hours or so.
Their unsuccessful hunts may last eight hours before they give up.
