What Kind Of Pinko Commie Savage Goes Coyote Over Loveable House Pet?

In reference to the comments on Kim Smith’s Post-

The Warrior: Surviving Coyote Attack #2

Seriously?

I don’t know what bizarro world these bananaheads come from that are dancing on the graves of poor dead house pets that were mauled by Coyotes but at the risk of offending said bananaheads there really is no risk because who the fuck would want to hang out with these miserable commie bastards anyway?

These are the same people who don’t want to sentence mass murderers to the death penalty.  It’s un-American to root for the wild animal over the lovable house pet (and I put all house pets over wild animals 100 times out of 100)

Let’s get something straight right off the bat in the pecking order of life of who you root for-

It goes in no uncertain terms-

  • Humans
  • House pets
  • Bunny rabbits
  • Squirrels
  • Chipmunks
  • All other wild animals excluding rats
  • Lobsters
  • Fish
  • Insects excluding mosquitos
  • Rats
  • Mosquitos

This isn’t even up for debate.

You know what kind of coyote is a good coyote in your neighborhood where your pets live and your kids play?  A Dead Fucking Coyote.

and if you can’t figure out the logic in that you might as well go live out in Montana or some other wild refuge location surrounded by wildlife that wants to eat your intestines for lunch with a nice bottle of Chianti.

I don’t wanna live in a society where we start putting varmint ahead of people and pets.  That’s just crazy talk from people who hate people.

Give me humans over animals 100 times out of 100

Give me house pets over wildlife 100 times out of 100.

That’s What I’m saying.

  1. I agree….just this evening at 7:20 pm I was out on my back deck, tending to my flowers, standing back to my yard…when my Coconut ( who is strictly a house dog) began barking like crazy standing at the slider screen door looking outside towards me…she was crazed!!!! I turned around to see what she was barking at…. I nearly died when I turned around to find…. less then 30 feet from where I stood on my deck a large very healthy looking Coyote with very large blue eyes staring me down… for the record…it didn’t even flinch when I let out a very loud scream and as Coconut continue to bark like a maniac…. I ran into the house and closed the slider door as fast as I could,for the record to all the crazy folks who think they have the right to be in and around family neighborhoods this coyote stood in that very spot staring for 20-30 seconds before it slowly turned and walked into the brush in our back yard in the same direction as my neighbors young children were out riding their bikes… I really hope their are more people in this world who think that the safety of humans, children and beloved pets sleep well the day one of these wild animals attack,and I also hope they have their wallets open to pay the medical expenses of the poor victims. I’m all for animals to live in the wild but the last time I checked my neighborhood has been zoned as a residential one not a wild animal kingdom….

  6. I always have found it odd that cats are the only domestic animal we let run free – once upon a time, we let our dogs out, too, but now we mostly keep them on leashes or in fenced yards. We pen our goats and cows, keep our rabbits in cages or pens (or inside with a litterbox, which is way better for them), horses are in stalls and paddocks, but cats just get to go where they want. But when we let them outside unattended, as Paul said, we insert them into the food chain. This can be dangerous for them because they’re not at the top, but it’s also dangerous for the ecosystem because they’re not at the bottom either. Cats aren’t indigenous to our area – when let out, they’re technically an invasive species. Roaming domestic cats kill huge numbers of songbirds every year, and while we think they’re helping with vermin, we have owls and other raptors for that. I feel bad for any pet animal that’s hurt, so I hope Cosmos recovers ok. But I do also think that there’s a pretty easy solution to keeping pets safe from coyotes. I don’t even let my dog out into our fenced yard unattended after dark because I’ve seen coyotes in the area.

    As for “the cat likes to be outside” argument – my dog would probably love to run on her own through the marsh and down to the beach, but I don’t let her do it, because she’d be in danger if she ran across the road. Sometimes we have to keep things our pets love from them in order to keep them safe.

    The diff with coyotes is they protocal their prey. Hunt the hardest to capture, but when hungry they will prey or harvest on their easier “inventory”. Those of you who think they are cute and can be run off… they are managing YOU! You and your pets are their inventory. I hold no degree on the subject, just observation.

  8. Hmm… “It’s un-American to root for the wild animal over the lovable house pet” It’s uncivil to make such comparisons. You aren’t american because you love dogs and cats – you love dogs and cats, which is admirable. Being American is what we all are, whether we agree on specific topics or not. When you start to say that all animals should be destroyed that interfere with house pets being able to do whatever they want – well, I don’t think you want that kind of world either. If coyotes are getting too intimate with homes, then wildlife management comes into play, not wildlife anger massacre. People should be alerted so they can take better care of their pets. JJ Jinglenuts being killed by a fisher cat doesn’t mean we should clear them from the woods. It’s sad and we had a cat here that had the same fate, but they had a good life and enjoyed the freedom vs safety. That’s a choice. Coyotes have a place too in the ecosystem. You want rats taking over your woods – massive amounts of disease carrying small animals that they help to maintain the numbers of? They help maintain the ecosystem from those diseases so our children can be safer – it isn’t one or the other. You want massive amounts of squirrels chewing into your roof and wrecking havoc on your wires causing fires? No? Thank the coyote.

    There is something seriously wrong when you need to rile people up to hate a wild animal that is just eating dinner. You don’t think there’s meat in the food that the cats and dogs eat? All carnivores. It’s terrible that this cat met that fate for the cats family. Some things suck and we can make it so it doesn’t happen in other people’s backyards and help others. Instead of anger, hows about a plan to manage the wildlife better and relocate it or provide protections for the homes instead of rampages of nonsensical garbage. Sensationalism is what makes our general news smut and GMG has always been fantastic at inspiring better from the local community. These rampages against bicycles, new technologies, and wild animals, Paul is right – lets get into religion… That way everyone can fight till we bleed all over one another and it will be really pretty. We need more gratitude, hope, love and positivity. Lets find common ground to grow things on instead of burning the city down. And yes this my toned down version.

      2. No, I was responding to the message you wrote above. I just read the comments to Kim and there were some folks who definitely weren’t sensitive enough. I also know that a cat that has been living outside cannot be confined indoors. Seems to be using up it’s poor nine lives rather swiftly, but what an exciting life! It’s too bad this happened and I’m so glad the kitty is expected to make a full recovery.

        I think though there were some good points made in terms of considering the predicament of the coyotes as a way to create solutions instead of just assuming that they are the problem. The situation is problematic, not the animals. Maybe its a combination of wildlife management and owner awareness with relocating aggressive coyotes. It doesn’t seem unrealistic to expect that the problem needs to be dealt with and Kim certainly wasn’t saying shoot ’em all up or whatnot. It’s admirable that you were defending Kim from mean comments that weren’t very useful and potentially harmful, especially those questioning her as a caring pet owner. Those were plain nasty. I just don’t think that what you wrote was terribly useful the other way. We get no winners, just wars. My two cents, which ain’t worth much – but there you go!

  10. I’ll only interject a personal anecdotal story. It may show that there are unintended consequences of loving one animal over another. Giving that animal more rights than others. Better that you look at the whole picture.

    In 1980 I had the fun job of helping clear trails on a small island (about 3 miles long but only about 500 yards wide) in the Bahamas. As we lived in a tent that month the two things which visited our tent was bananaquits and curly tailed lizards. The bananaquits would almost sit on your arm and would drink out of a cut grapefruit. Cute little birds. The curly tail lizards were even cuter and you could see them scurry around all the time.

    Fast forward to 2005. I had visited a couple of times but in 2005 I got to stay for a week to rebuild a dock damaged in a hurricane. A good excuse to hang out with high school buds and fish. During that week I did not see one curly tail nor one bananaquit. In fact I did not see one bird. This seemed absurd. We thought it was the hurricane that did it.

    But what happened was far worse. A lady on the other end of the island “rescued” some cats and put them on the island. She fed them and then she left and the cat population grew. Those feral cats killed every single curly tailed lizard on the entire island as well as every bird and then because there was no food, all the cats died. It may have only taken a year or so. Cats are trained since ancient Egyptian times to kill everything small. They do not forget when they go feral. Only a dozen cats could have worked down the island killing everything and anything that moved.

    So coyotes cleaning out feral cats could be chalked up to being a good thing. That is if you enjoy birds and anything the wiggles. I do not begrudge cats. I love cats and dogs. As an invasive species, wild outdoors, they are not my favorite. The coyote, which was driven from Massachusetts but is making a come back to fill its natural niche is not an animal I begrudge either. By eating young deer, rats and mice, they keep the population of these animals in check. Their extinction in the Northeast may be the reason why Lyme disease was able to get a foothold. They may keep it in check.

    And I hope Cosmo is feeling better. Two times occupying the jaws of a coyote is two times too many.

    1. Thank you Paul for your well-wishes for Cosmos.

      From what I have read–coyotes were never ever in the northeast. They were a strictly western species when they bred with with the more cold tolerant red wolf, sometime in the last century Just as we don’t allow nor tolerate predacious wolves and bears in densely populated residential neighborhoods, coyotes do not belong either. See below.

      Cats were trained in Egyptian times to kill every small animal because the Egyptians were very intelligent in managing their food supply. During drought years, they relied heavily on stored grains. The cats very effectively protected the granaries by killing the rodents and that is why they were so revered. Cats were mummified and buried with their owners, they were thought so highly of. World wide, rats are a terrible problem in consuming food grown for humans, on farmlands and in the storage facilities.

      Our cats have always been superb rodent catchers and I hate to see what will happen when all the cats become indoor cats and the coyotes have killed all the outdoor cats. Cats can’t possibly hunt all, but their presence keeps the rodent population in check.

      From Mass Audubon: Researchers now believe that the eastern coyote is a hybridization between the western coyote and red wolves many generations ago in the upper Great Lakes region of the United States. It is theorized that as populations of the western coyote increased, they were forced to move east and north in search of food. As they moved into Minnesota they crossbred with eastern/red wolves and produced a genetically hardy animal able to sustain itself through New England winters

      1. I should look this stuff up before I go spouting off. The coyote was not native here but we wiped out all of the other predators. You erase an animal in a niche and hopefully there is another that will fill it. The coyote has become the predator here to fill the gap. It may help getting the deer population in check, it may keep a lot of animals that have not feared a predator for many decades in check. Because without a balance we get weird stuff happening.

        2. This is very correct, sir. Additionally, coyotes might also be very beneficial to humans in that they may play a key role in abating the spread of Lyme disease. Because coyotes frequently kill mice (which are carriers of deer ticks) and kill deer, coyotes may be able to interrupt the life cycle of the Lyme/deer tick. A key piece to the puzzle is learning how the eastern coyote predates upon deer populations. They are known to kill fawns, but whether they organize as packs in order to kill adult deer on a regular basis is less clear. It does happen, but it seems to be fairly infrequently. Due to the coyote’s recent addition to our forests, the science on the exact role they play in the ecosystem is somewhat fuzzy.

          Additionally, the Audubon snippet that Kim is quoting is only half of the story. The reason that the eastern coyote exists in Cape Ann today is because humans killed off the wolves in the eastern forests of the US over a century ago. Wolves by nature, are very territorial animals, and will kill coyotes should they infringe upon their territory, or cut into their food supply. There was actually a very interesting study done on the coyotes of Yellowstone National Park, and how they were affected by wolf re-introduction in the 90’s. The gist of the study was, that within two years the wolves killed 50% of the coyotes in the park, and brought the area to an ecological homeostasis. So, once humans wiped out wolves, coyotes expanded their range farther and farther east as they they were not challenged by a more dominant, territorial predator. Along the way, as the wolf population was dwindling more and more, inter-breeding with coyotes occurred due to an insufficient number of other wolf breeding partners.

          What we have now in this area is a very interesting situation, with coyote/wolf hybrids. They are obviously much smaller (approximately 2-3 times smaller), much bolder than wolves, and much more adaptable. But can they fill the ecological niche that their larger cousins had? I dunno, time will tell.

          What I can tell you is this, for one to write them off as a nuisance, or that they don’t “belong here” is silly. They could be exactly what we need, re: lyme disease. Yes, some cats will be attacked as will small dogs. We might have to adapt to their presence, but part of living in a non-urban area, is working with nature. People tend to have a tough time with this concept, but personally, I’d rather live on the edge of a forest with lots of wild critters, than one with just trees. Trees do not make a forest, a diverse set of flora and fauna together do.

          In terms of being physically scared by the coyotes, please! They are practically harmless to humans, unless you have cornered one or they view you as a threat to their pups. Do not mistake their curiosity for aggressiveness. Once last summer one of my small-ish dogs (15 lbs.) took chase after a juvenile coyote who was watching us from the edge of the woods. I ran after my dog, as I did not want the coyote to bite him out of fear. But that critter took off like a shot, and wanted nothing to do with us. On another occasion, I was walking home from town around 10:30 at night, and for some reason I got the feeling to look behind me. When I did, who was crossing 127 a block away from me? Mr./Mrs. coyote! So I said “Hey, you! You are not supposed to let people see you! ARRRGGGGHHHH!!!!”….and I ran after him/her. Again, the critter ran off up a hill into the woods, turned around and looked at me like “Jeez man, you just scared the crap outta me! There is nothing wrong with you asserting ‘your territory’ if you don’t want them in your yard. Throw tennis balls at them, spray them with your garden hose, etc. etc.

          On an interesting side note – Since I chased a coyote off of my property last summer, and then started snooping around in the woods near my house last winter looking for their tracks and scat, I have not seen, or heard of them since. Huh? They were in my back woods whooping it up 4 nights a week last July/August. Now, not a peep. Is it possible that they felt I was asserting my territory by being curious about what they were doing, and tracking their movements? Possibly, I guess? Not too far-fetched though.

          So really, keep your cats inside at night, and watch your dogs (especially small breeds) closely during the evening hours. It’s not a big deal, if I do it all the time, so can you. Time will tell whether the coyote belongs here or not, let’s try and coexist with them and find out.

  11. I wasn’t arguing. The basis of my thesis is that all animals should be allowed to fill their niche in the world because when we kill one off, shit happens. We killed off all the predators in Massachusetts and we get shit on. Like exploding deer populations, Lyme disease, whatever. But nature abhors a vacuum and the coyote has filled the niche of predator. The Fisher Cats sure aren’t holding up their end because the friggin’ rabbits are going nuts around my house.

They are one of the few wild creatures that have been able to thrive as neighbors with humans and getting rid of them by killing or trapping doesn’t work . Best thing is not to make it easy for them to get food and water by not leaving it around . They eat everything so that means picking up dropped fruit from your trees etc. Keep the pets in at night and be aware small kids should not be left unattended in areas where they are.

  15. It is always unfortunate when humanity and nature are at odds. If these animals are sick and dangerous I understand that they need to be destroyed, so be it. I have dogs and would be extremely upset if anything were to happen to them too, but I live in the wild and can’t see that eradicating a species would help anyone. I feel every creature has a right to live and as we humans keep taking more and more of their habitat and food sources they have to fight for what they can get. And they have a right to. It is awful that anyone would celebrate the loss of another’s beloved house pet. But i often think of the coyotes too and they have their part to play in the circle of life. We have wolves, bears and cougars too. All will stay away from humans if they have enough food and a place to live. In they area we have tons of wild lands and open space and a local organization has purchased large tracks of land in and around town to give animals (elk herds, deer,etc) a place to live. There are also some great trails there too. It upsets me when someone complains about the animals that live there. We are in their space and if my dog is attacked on the trail it would be terrible, but also a risk i am willing to take and NOT the wild animals fault. Why is this suddenly happening? Is there some disruption in the coyotes patterns that are forcing them closer to home. Is it overpopulation? Was there a big development put in recently? Joey it would be really sad to explain to your grandchildren the reason we do not have a certain species was due to us not being able to solve a bit of a habitat issue. And if the coyotes go other will follow. Just sayin’

No insults or hate-mongering that I could find (on either side). If a cat goes out doors, it potentially becomes both predator and prey. If you don’t want your pet to be part of that equation, keep it indoors, and/or manage your property to make it less attractive to wildlife. I see nothing offensive in that.

    You are right, though. I am a weak-willed, country-hating, human-loathing, irritably-disposed, terrorist-loving, parentless, fake-pet-owning bananahead. And I was trying so hard to hide all of that.

      Not sure how many times you need to keep insisting that I dont get that coyotes will eat your pets if they are left outside. I get it. I just don’t rejoice and celebrate the fact. Hence the title of the original post-
      “What Kind Of Pinko Commie Savage Goes Coyote Over Loveable House Pet?”

      In reference to those who were cheering about Kim’s pet getting mauled.

      Still don’t get what i’m talking about?

      Still going to insist that I don’t understand that leaving your pets outside leaves them at risk? not sure where I wrote that.

      I wrote about our JJ Jinglenuts who only wanted to be outside. we knew the risks in letting him roam out there. The fishercat ate him. Doesn’t mean I have to be happy about it. Doesn’t mean I’ll ever understand those who write in happy about it.
      That is what drives me nuts.

      For example the 12% of teh people who say they would rather see a coyote live over a human in the poll. That’s rational thought process? i’m supposed to understand and be sympathetic to those people. Uhhhh, no.

      1. Okay, so I think I get where the miscommunication is happening. You are talking about “rooting for” or ranking “importance to you” in a battle not “valuing” or “ranking in general importance” which is a difference that is not immediately perceptible from the post. The post makes you sound a bit lunatic and sounds like you want to kill any coyote in the area of children or pets and would be alright with a world where only people and pets survive.

        I wouldn’t even being to rationalize those who would not want a small child to win in a combat with a wild animal, or a beloved pet. Of course we all want that. It is bizarre to me that anyone out there would state they want differently for so many reasons that I get your vehemence. What I don’t want, is the wild animal to be vilified due to said clash and exterminated from any area that is human inhabited. The whole world is human inhabited with children and pets – so that wouldn’t leave much room for those balancing animals that may not be popular, but serve an important function. It didn’t even occur to me that someone would not be rooting for the house cat and that’s what you were fighting here. I don’t think it’s just me – so I think the post is a bit difficult to distinguish. Maybe because most folks don’t imagine people that would say and mean such socially contemptuous things. I would guess you received some angry rants from some folks who are general cranks, drunk, drunk and cranks, certifiable, or just dull attention-getters that say anything to get a rise. BUT then again there was recently a poll that listed 6% of people purposefully don’t swerve and sadistically try to make roadkill, so not sure about the world on many levels…

        We recently encountered a weasel trying to ace a rabbit and I took off like a shot to intercept it, trying to save the rabbit – we all rank animals and usually the fuzzier and cuter, the higher on our favorites list. (Rabbit was fine and probably didn’t need my help.) I am okay with the weasel, however, being in our backyard – but I root for the bunny. Although weasel babies are quite cute…
