Looks like he's only got a front left and a back right.

He's just doing what he was created to do. Stop hating.

Hate them or not, it is still amazing to see how some wild animals can adapt.

I only hate em during fawn season, and I don't hunt many deer anymore. After seeing videos of them snatching up piglets, I hate em a lot less.

We raise sheep and goats, I could afford a really nice house with all the $ lost to predation over the years.

Looks like he's missing the left rear from above ankle. Yes, they are tough on livestock and other critters but I do admire their will to survive.
Adios,
Gary

Tough sonofaguns for sure and once they get a little bit of age on em…...smart as hell!


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

I understand that and darn sure wouldn't hold it against you. Do you go out at night with the intention to thin them out? I went with a friend that had a call, we got 4 that night. I've tried it on my own but was slightly less successful. I haven't done that in years but if I was in your business, I think I'd have to.

If I was there full-time it would be on my list. We've allowed some locals to try calling, they've never gotten one. Now we have some hogs as well. I spent Saturday afternoon building a #6 hog pen and have the materials to do another when I'm there on Nov 7th. The govt trapper has helped us some but it's been four months since he caught one. Time to put the cyanide guns back out. I hope to acquire a thermal in the next year and do some work on both the hogs and coyotes.

I have a buddy who was calling on a big ranch in South Texas that bordered Hwy. 59. He was calling down a wide sendero with the Mini Blaster when he noticed something moving slowly toward him, very close to the ground. He slowly raised his rifle and found a coyote that was pulling himself along the ground in an attempt to get to the distress sound.
My buddy shot the poor coyote and when he recovered it, found that it had been hit by a vehicle on the highway and was paralyzed in his back end.
Adios,
Gary
