Chickity Check It! Living With Coyotes/Coywolves | Eastern Coyote/Coywolf Research

I think one of the really good suggestions from the article linked above is to carry a whistle if you’re going for a walk.

I’d just like some public officials to stand up acknowledge the trend and maybe tell us what the plans are to educate people or how they are talking to The Mass Environmental Police or other wildlife groups about monitoring the explosive growth in Coyote populations around here.

Here’s a couple of articles from The Gloucester Daily Times all within the past few months with the latest being just two days ago.

We never had reports like this 8 years ago. To stick our heads in the sand and not publicly educate people when these incidents are piling up is just plain bananas to me.

      Very informative article with the common questions answered. Thanks.

      • John McElhenny says:

        I got a kick out of some of the tips in the MSPCA document like “Keep children indoors” and “Use livestock donkeys and llamas.” Kim, I think you should be the trend-setter and bring more llamas to E. Gloucester.

        • Kim Smith says:

          It killed me when I read that John–so annoying and ridiculous. “Children should be supervised at all times outdoors,” what a horrible way to grow up!! These tips seem like robotic jibberish to me and are not addressing the core problem in any realistic or meaningful way.

        • Kim Smith says:

          Re we should get llamas and donkeys–my friend JoeAnn, at her farm on Eastern Point, keeps rescue donkeys. The coyotes are seen there, just as often as everywhere else, and in broad daylight.

          Perhaps she doesn’t have enough donkeys? Or maybe the combination of donkeys, llamas, and guard dogs is needed?

  1. Both articles (Joey’s and Kim’s) are great for keeping perspective. Thanks for sharing. I hope folks read these.

    Excellent Research here Capt Joe communication prevents the rumors and wrong information for being passed along…Taking from your previous podcast (Googel-Googel) I have submitted some previous post…You are right awareness and actions to take in event are vital prior to any encounter not after it happens…Our counterparts are no different than humans who also go where the picking are easier and less effort, abundance of items to survive and in some cases intentional -unintentional offering which may draw them to us…
    Traditions and History are the path to look back upon and move forward!
