Awful. There are guardian dogs and even llamas to keep coyotes away from herds and flocks. Better yet, go vegetarian, and don't buy beef and lamb while coyotes die!

Don't you get it, coyote, elephant, dolphin, whale, wildcat? Don't you understand? Now that humans have come you must not hunt, mate, eat or be seen. You have no rights. Only death can deliver you from unspeakable agony.

Oh, woman, shut your mouth. You have no rights either. Neither you nor your children.

Bill, my partner in greed, what's wrong with you? You're stiff as a steel trap. You're not dead yet.

Bill's mouth opens in a wide, terrified scream of horror .KARMA!!!!!

The ranchers and hunters need to fall off the planet. These two groups want to wipe out the wolves, coyotes, horses etc. Please go vegan or vegetarian this will be the way to stop the powerful and wealthy ranchers. Humans are the most destructive animals on earth. This slaughter is beyond disgusting. I hope the hunters and ranchers become victims of karma.

But with strong wolf populations, coyotes numbers remain not only in check but keep coyote predation actually down. Nature is so smart, and we are so freaking stupid and barbaric. A friend of mine in LA actually thought coyotes were gray wolves. That's right. She said "but their populations are just fine, I see them all the time. " O hell. And now we know why our governments can pander to industry and kill everything because most people haven't a clue what's going on.

Absolutely unforgivable - I so hope that the one that lifts a gun to these precious animals gets struck by lightning!
