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.

I have a friend who's experimenting with some solar, at peak those dozen panels put out a scary amount of power, big issue is storage for use at night. And looking at a book on solar tech there's a heckuva lot to learn far as battery types and how not to fry them. For the time being Ill stick with the woodstove, kerosene lights, and century old proven low-tech to get thru the powerless times. Really the hardest part was a (very) cold bathroom in the morning, and trying to read a book by lamplight . I can easily go more low tech but all this has gotten me through two really brutal a winters...

Yes, my dream is someday to cut that ugly line that comes into the house. The technology is there but the costs haven't come into line yet, but they will. Part of that equation would be having a natural gas generator.

Too bad Edison won't let u run on these commercial generators . You have to be on the grid.... Edison isn't rich enough !

The house is on the market. I had a couple today look at it . It would say they were in their 60s. The really liked the idea of having that generator .

On my Gas bill no joke it showed an extra 1.20 for the generator. We lost power in RS at least four times a day for almost two weeks when we had our big storm!

Cinderella. What was your natural gas bill when it ran for several days? Of course the Edison bill should be small.

Today, my tribal name is Burning Throat. My so called friend Blowing Wind, and his buddy, Pollen Dust, are pick on me.
Hopefully, I don't turn to Running Nose or Watery Eyes tomorrow. (The kids on the street would have a fieldday teasing me.)
