So I now have a $500 goose...Sadly, Frenchy's wing comes off next week - Page 7

post #61 of 68

I am so sorry about your troubles with the coyotes and Frenchy.  Poor goose!  I pray everything goes well for her now and she mends quickly.  Good luck to you and good hunting.  That is one animal, the coyote, who deserves to die.

Coyote is doing what comes natural to survive we would do no less.  That being said, I'll bet Frenchy will do just fine without her wing.  As you've already bared witness animals are so strong.   She has two wonderful families to take care of her she can't lose.  Good luck to all of you.  And please let us know the outcome.  Sending positive prayers to you all.

Earlier this week my young daughter and her friend were playing in the front yard in my daughter's play yard.  They had just come inside when I heard my goose scream.  Frenchy was in my daughter's play yard, facing off with the coyote to save her ducks.

Going back and rereading CMV's original posting [a portion of it above] I would say that this is defintely not a natural instinct for a coyote.  Rather it appears to be a learned thing and she is passing this along to her pups.  Coyotes hunt, they forage, but they do not stake a place out as this one seems to have done.  This animal needs to be stopped and her pups as well.  They have learned bad habits and will continue to pass them on.  I've been dealing with coyotes here for over 30 years and if I found them showing this kind of behavior, unafraid of humans, I would not hesitate to take them out by any means necessary.  As someone else said, next time it could be her child.

I originaly stopped back here to see if there was any news about Frenchy.  Such a sad thing for the family and the goose.  I hope everything went well and she is recovering nicely.

I have been stopping in on this thread from time to time to see how Frenchy is doing.  I was so very sad to see that her wing was going to be amputated, but then again it will most likely put an end to all the pain she has been going through.  I agree that the behavior of the coyote is NOT normal, and she and her litter need to be killed.  It is really scary to think that your daughter could have been the one mauled.

 

Please give us an update on how Frenchy is doing!

I know this is on old thread but I just thought of something we had pig's I mean 300lb pig's and we have a pack of ball'sy coyotes but when we got the pigs they stopped coming in the field because they didmt want nothing to do with the pigs. I am also sorry for your problem I know how emotionally it can be but you will get through it.
