I was complaining to a neighbor about the coyotes - we live on a farm and I'd hear them run through almost every night - and he told me that if we shoot one and hang it on a fence on the back of our property that it would "scare off" other coyotes. I don't know if it's coincidence, but we did that about a year ago and I haven't seen or heard another coyote since. That dead one is gone - the buzzards eventually ate it - and the guy that manages the farm has done it a couple more times and hung them in a couple of different places. It sounds like hooey voodoo to me but I can't deny that I haven't seen or heard any since then. Has anyone else heard of that? And I wonder if it would work for possums and/or raccoons?
