I mean, you expect to see coyotes in rural areas, but actually here in the Los Angeles area it's been in the NEWS lately for several days that a pack of 5 to 7 coyotes has been roaming the culver city area taking out pets. Culver city! downtown los angeles! skyscraper, concrete, freeways.. and a pack of coyotes. maybe the latest fires have driven them into the populated areas.M
The coyotes I have around don't bother me as I enjoy hearing them at night, plus they keep my rabbit population in check. I do wonder if coyotes are known to eat hogs or young hogs. If I killed a coyote I'd leave it in the woods for other coyotes to eat but hogs and many other critters will eat them too. Interesting posts about donkeys since I didn't know that about them. My neighbor has a couple of them along with some cattle and horses where I always giggle when I hear them braying.
