It is pupping season! Not the “aww cute” puppies kind but the soon to be adult vicious predators that can pose a threat to small pets and backyard chickens kind. Yep, coyote breeding happens in January and February and then voila! – coyote pups in March and April.
Just like many animals, when coyotes are starting a family, they tend to be more aggressive to any perceived threats. This coupled with the fact that many suburban and urban areas are close to breeding spots and you’ve got a problem.
(Coyote)Breeding occurs once annually, typically in late January and in February, with pups born in March and April. Parents and offspring continue to remain in a family group for about six months. Before giving birth, the adults excavate one or more dens in the soil, occasionally expanding the burrows of other animals, but sometimes using hollow logs, rock piles, or culverts. Typically, even when denning in suburban areas, they choose sites where human activity is minimal. If disturbed, the parents may move the litter to an alternate den site. . . Coyote mating season is in late January through February and pups are born in March and April. Coyotes can be aggressive and protective during mating or when protecting litters of pups
Ok, so they are breeding, steer clear, what’s the big deal? The big deal is that every day reports surface of coyotes attacking, maiming and even killing small dogs and other small domestic pets. Here are links to just a few stories from the past month:
And as if this isn’t bad enough, the link below describes a coyote attack on a man who was out for a jog!
Clearly, this is a HUGE(nod to POTUS)problem. Well, as you well know by now, we at predatorpee are all about solutions to common pest problems. Using the predator-prey instinct as our guide, we are led to the canis lupus or wolf as the predator to the coyote.
But, as usual, you don’t have to take my word for it . . .
“…After we bought your WolfPee last year, we did not have any problems with coyotes whatsoever and we thank you for that. New year and we have three cats we must protect. I thank you and will place my large order soon…”
Margery F. – Walpole, MA
“It really works…we haven’t seen a coyote in the neighborhood for years now.”
Nancy – Woodinville, WA
“I believe this is my third purchase from you, and it seems to be deterring the coyotes, so I’m going to continue hanging it on my fence to keep them at bay, from my doggies.”
Susanne – Denver, CO
So, the problem is real but so is the solution. Don’t wait, keep your pets safe during pupping season. Get some Wolf Pee!
