There may be many concerns you have when first seeing a coyote on your property, but the main thing you should consider is how to remove it and keep it off of your property for good. The best option is to rely on someone who has the experience and knowledge needed to successfully remove this wild animal for good.

Here are just a few of the nuisance concerns a coyote sighting can cause that will have you seeking the help of your local wildlife removal company.

  • Coyotes feeding on your livestock. Coyotes are predators and will take advantage of any food source available to them. They will attack your chickens, sheep, goats and even cattle. if they are outside and easily available to them, a coyote will attack them.
  • Coyotes threatening pets. If a coyote would attack large cattle, you can assume that they would not pause to eat your pets, and you would be right. They are known to attack dogs and cats. They are territorial and will attack not only for food but also to maintain control of their territory, which can put your pets in harm’s way.
  • Coyotes can spread diseases. They can become infected with rabies and spread this disease to us and our pets. You need to be aware of any wild animal not acting as it normally would and take the necessary precautions for you and your pets. Coyotes are canines and can carry the parvovirus. While humans are not affected by this virus, our dogs could easily catch this virus, and they could become extremely ill. The parvovirus is a death sentence for many dogs, so you need to take the steps necessary to protect your pets from contracting this virus.
  • Coyotes threatening people. Coyotes are well adapted at living close to humans, and they usually shy away from human contact. Even though they generally do not attack people, the number of attacks have been on the rise in the recent years. As the coyote population rises and people push further into their natural habitat, we can only expect the number of attacks to only increase. Remember these animals are territorial, and any wild animal will attack if you corner them or they feel threatened. So, your best bet would be to keep a safe distance from any unwelcome coyotes.
  • Coyotes can damage your property. Coyotes are scavengers and can destroy our crops and gardens. They are known to eat chicken and destroy fencing and chicken coops looking for their next meal. They have also been known to destroy irrigation pipes in their search for food and water. They can throw trash around our property and cause a lot of damage in their quest for a readily available food source.

Coyotes can wreak a lot of havoc on your well being and your property. You want to keep your family and pets safe while they are at home, and a coyote can cause a lot of unnecessary fear. The best thing to do is not to panic and call in the help of others that know how to handle the situation.

So, you need to remember to keep your head and do not be afraid to call for help if you happen to find a coyote on your property.
