I just lurk at this great site for informantion.
We have been partimers for over 40 years, Last Monday afternoon we suffered our frist coyote attack. The SOB came right up on our front porch and snacthed one of our Boston Terriers with me setting just a few feet away. Within seconds he was across the street and out ofsight. Being a wheelchair user, all I could do wa scream @#*%! at him. MY 70 year old sister jumped in the van and sped off down Lakeview, hoping to see him. Too no avail she took to offroading behind nearby cabins were she spotted the SOB killing the 10lb. dog. Charging straight at him, he drop the dog, she was able to scoop her up before he turned towards both of them. Offroading back to our place we smoked it to VCA-Lakeside, were Dr. Sevedge was waiting for us after our call. He did a great job saving her life and closing up her many bites.
Any ideas on how too ride our area of this preadetor, he has been sighted many times stalking and has killed many pets on our point.

Welcome Oilhauler. So glad your pup was able to be saved.

No good deed goes unpunished.

Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty much leave me alone.

The best way to be rid of them is a $40.00 bounty per hide! Call it a predator stimulus program!

I am so sorry for your traumatizing day! I am glad your sister was able to rescue your pup and VCA was able to save her! I don't have an answer for you about what to do about the coyotes, but I'm sure others will.

BTW...welcome! I hope you visit more often!

Welcome to the mountains! You need to keep those puppies on leashes at ALL TIMES. You can't keep the coyotes out unless you buy a really high fence. There you go. It is the mountains and it's their world.

A leash is not going to keep them from nabbing the fur babies

It would be a hell of a tug of war in my book! I would be bashing the crap out of the coyote till it dropped my cat or puppy on a leash! Hell the tire knocker would do some damage to it! Sorry I'm onery (no not horney) tonight!!!

tonight?! you're always ornery! that's why I love ya! I agree...it would be a helluva battle, I'm just saying a leash isn't going to intimidate a bold coyote.

Ohiochad: I suggest the santa ana river trail, down from the crossing of 38 or up or down from Glass road. Easy but some up and down, pictures not grand canyon but nice local flora etc

I asked at the Barton Flats Visitor Center and find that the South Fork trail head is open. SGWA volunteers have worked on the trail to allow it to be opened. Bad news is that the Fish Creek and Lost Creek trails are not open and no future opening for these can be seen. There is a closure order for these areas.

google "spot-the-station" and sign up for emails or text messages. This is a NASA site and only alerts you for viewable passes.

Had a great flyover this morning too. Went from WNW to ESE. The only thing shining in the sky as it cruised over.
