This year has been on hectic, sad, disgusting one all around. I've lost close to 50 chickens. Two kittens, countless strays have disappeared, and I nearly got my butt kicked by my aggressive neighbor as she thought I killed her cat. NOW I get told that coyotes are attacking my horses. Not ten feet from several neighboring trailers. Plus, another neighbor's dog was ripped apart on his chain. Probably 200 feet away from my horse pasture and 400 ft from my house. Both have small children. I called my stepfather about a guy that trapped yotes for us the last few years. He won't be able to trap until Nov 6 according to the WV fish and wildlife page. This problem is now. I did give my neighbors permission to shoot if they see them in my pasture. But that's a small part of the problem. I'm also dreading this winter. We have an outside wood stove that heats my stepfather's business and our house, so it's halfway between them. 100ft away. I've been stalked at night before. I'm having my neighbor call the game warden/fish and wildlife and so am I. My stepfather and neighbor are really doubtful they'll do anything. Can anyone give me any tips with dealing with them?
