My cat was eaten by a coyote when I was a kid. I was the lucky one to find what was left of him in our front yard when I was about ten years old. It took a few years to get over the resentment toward coyotes as a whole, but I did. Now I just find it disheartening and sad that they have been driven from their homes over and over again so that we can have our HOA’s and golf courses.




That would be traumatic for any cat owner Im sure. Sorry you had to see that.

Man and his golf courses and HOAs have little to no bearing on coyote instinct they live by killing Hell theyd kill you and me if they could! Urban coyotes are a big thing now.

Coydogs are spooky.
Saw one at Monahans State park, look he had some golden retriever in him but definitely a coydog. Bigger than a coyote.
Was running as an alpha with a pack of coyotes I think.
The others ran when they saw me at a distance but this one just stood there and stared me down.
Finally when I tried to run him down he bolted and I lost sight of it.
You could feel the attitude...



Just when I thought I was out... they pulled me back in.

Wild dogs in rural areas are a lot more worrisome to me than coyotes (usually), but the hyena-like heckling sounds a pack of coyotes can make is downright spine tingling sometimes. An interesting ability coyotes have is that they can throw their voices, creating the illusion there are more of them than there actually are. I didn’t believe this at first, but did a little research and sure enough... Coyotes have definitely adapted to human encroachment. Even thrived in some places.

What the hell is a coydog anyway?? I guess it’s something else to look up, lol.

I live in a small town and there have been coyote sightings which is a scary thought. I'm not an expert, but aren't they supposed to be cowardly animals?

Coydog = half dog half coyote, not too common but it happens. Typically a bitch dog that in heat that doesn't discriminate too much LOL, female coyote will run away from male dogs even when in estrus. Coyotes typically stay clear of domestic dogs, unless theyre small domestic dogs then all bets are off.

That coyote yapping heckling sound you mention is something I have grown to love. Out here its not unusual for 3 or 5 different groups to sound off at the same time over a large area. We have a pair living in the cliffs behind my house have not seen any pups from that partnership yet but I reckon some are forthcoming. Kinda makes me sad because they live short difficult lives.

LOL. Cowardly is a typical, subjective human characterization. If you made your living trying to catch a mouse for diner while dodging imbecile redneck macho men with high powered rifles trying to zap you, you might behave cowardly as well.

Wild animals generally avoid confrontations and derive no glory from acting tough like people, aggressive behavior in coyotes is rare because they understand if they get in a fight with people or dogs or bobcats and get wounded its probably a death sentence.

Lame coyotes cant catch dinner.

There an excellent layman's treatise on the coyote by the author Frank J Dobe.

Best UER thread hi-jack ever next to "Colorado Instagrammers".

I know it is a stretch for most urbexerz but I encountered these critters routinely in urban DFW while exploring.

Enjoy https://www.youtub...atch?v=a7NPu8vlTuc

Coydog = half dog half coyote


Anyone remember an old DOS game called Wasteland? They had a coydog in their beastiary...a rather difficult fight as I recall (til you got the laser pistol and a good ol' kevlar suit ).
I've seen coyotes here in NC occasionally; doing night patrols at one of the sites I worked, they'd skulk around at night, and would stare at you as you walked around, like they were debating on whether or not to chase after you.
I remember one night there were a few walking around, and when they were behind me, they'd get a bit closer, but would stop when I looked at them, and slowly start to back off, but they generally didn't break eye contact. It was a rather spooky encounter.

I've always heard that you shouldn't maintain eye contact with an animal that would beat you in a fight - that it's a sign of aggression. Fortunately, I've never had to find out for myself if it's true or not!

I think that's true with bears but it has never seemed to bother the loose dogs in the area Ive had encounters with. Even the aggressive ones.

Dogs read body language and they look at your eyes trying to figure you out, are you friend or foe?

The eyes are the windows to the soul. If youre soul is pure Grasshopper the dog will soon know it. (also carry Snausages TM in your pockets)

Coyotes can also be skin walkers and shape shifters.

Ive seen one may have told the story before maybe I'll start a new thread for that

Shadow walkers... trailing them is fun.
It really unnerves them.

I will post it because its vaguely UE related. Watch the South forum for upcoming details, sorry no pics from circa 2001 or 2002. 90% of y'all wont believe it anyway.

Hell even I don't believe it and I was there!
