Yote pups by my house

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have had a big yote 40+ eyeballing my dog and running around my backyard. Well after hearing them yelping, I have located the den. I see at least 4 pups. I saw them from a distance running around. should I be concerned and should I call F and G?  The mother and my dog had a staredown in my yard a few days that was not a good situation. I chased her off but I see her everyday. Please advise. And no its not the season and I have no discharge laws!:down:

Provided you have no heart, lawn mower, garden hose, and shovel.  Deal with adult as required.

Hook up with a trapper?  If you're in no discharge area shooting would probably not be advisable/safe.  Most no-discharge towns I know of are fairly dense.  Even if you can shoot safely its not worth getting caught.

As much as I know they're a nuisance I'm not here to do anything unethical I just basically want to have the mom not bother my dog or feel unsafe. I'm actually fine with letting them grow up I just don't need any drama with my dog. I guess I'll call Fish and Game

They are hunting your dog.  The stare down was them hoping your dog chased them into the woods.  Once separated from the house/you. They attack. Destroy and eat your dog. 

Hope I'm wrong. 

Once you contact the authorities it's on the radar.  At that point you can't do anything even if they eat your dog. 

Only you can decide what needs to be done. Good luck.

So sorry to hear they ate all your chickens. Under the law if they are in the act of killing livestock you can shoot them.

Is it unethical to destroy a pack of yotes that are, in effect, hunting your family pet? Just a question...

I am not advising you what to do, that is your call. I know what I would do if I was concerned for my family or pets safety...ethics wouldn't be a concern of mine at that point.

I'm not trying to be naive but I do not know for sure whether that coyote was hunting my dog or just protecting her pups. I'm going to take this with caution and see what happens as I can't do anything now anyway. Im in a residential neighborhood and somebody will know what happened trust me. This is a very small patch of woods.
