RE: Re: claws

We have coyotes, hawks and owls to deal with. A hawk or owl can pick up a small cat with no problem. It happened to one of my neighbors cats. She was just sick about it. Cried for days. And since we've put up a heavy duty horse fence, and bought the llamas, the coyotes don't come around much. Llamas will go after a coyote. They have thick fur and the coyote does not stand a chance. A llama will sit on them and suffocate them. We had one llama try to do that to our pygmy goats so we could not allow him in there with the goats.

As for a parent's concern about the coyotes around the kids at school. Well, they should be concerned. I am a wildlife lover...obviously....but they are known to carry rabies. In fact, my husband shot one in our barn in Texas...that was rabid. So, the children need to be alert about that. A rabid coyote will walk right up to you.

This is dog, read coyote, country here Kitty.... I would worry too much
if he went outside. He doesn't seem to mind it, never tried to get out.
He will be by the door as everyone walks in and out....and just sits
there. Most times you have to walk over him to get in or out...
