This face, though strangely beautiful can be the last thing a poor, unprotected pet will see. The coyote can be a vicious predator.
The following story is unfortunately becoming all too common . . .

Coyote attacks Scituate man’s dog, raises concern
Earlier this month, at about 6 p.m., John Norris was fixing the light on the front door of his Cedar Crest Lane home when he heard his dog, Lucy, barking in the driveway behind him.
“I turned and I saw a coyote,” Norris said. “Lucy went to the edge of the driveway and the coyote shot out and grabbed her by the rear and threw her.”
It all happened so fast, Norris said.
As he ran to his injured dog, the coyote took off.
“I was all concerned about Lucy,” Norris said of the 21-pound Australian labradoodle. “She was really badly injured.”
Coyotes are definitely present in Scituate, where Animal Control Officer Kim Stewart reported receiving sighting reports for more than 20 years.
“Heavily wooded areas are more common, but there are very few areas that we do not have reports of coyotes and in fact they are present in virtually every town in Massachusetts,” she said.
There have been a lot of reports of coyotes being aggressive toward pets, Stewart said. . . . Click here to read more of this article
Well, this is scary for pet owners, but what is to be done? Many articles reference fencing, keeping the food inside, making loud noises, or just learning to understand them. I don’t know about you, but I don’t really want to get to know a coyote, and I certainly don’t want to share my back yard with one. Now, I make it my business to know predators, and I sell urines(including coyote) to scare off other critters. As soon as I caught wind of this growing problem a few years back, I did some research and confirmed my hypothesis that the coyote has only a few natural predators, one of which is canis lupis, more commonly known as the wolf! I put 2 and 2 together, and now predatorpee.com .com is selling 100% WolfPee to deter coyotes. We have sold hundreds of bottles. . .but you don’t have to take my word for it. . .
” I was about to get a gun for the coyotes trying to attack my puppy. But I’m not the gun-slinging type. Was chatting with a lady on the hiking trails and she told me about you. can’t remember her name.” -predatorpee.com customer
“…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
While I am not a cat lover at all, I do have 2 dogs and I understand the connection pet owners have with their pets and the strong desire to protect them. Coyotes aren’t going to just go away, and we’ve got to be able to protect our pets. Wolf urine provides a safe, natural way to do so. No guns, no walking around your yard banging pots, and certainly no attempting to “get to know” your neighborhood coyotes – just the predator-prey instinct put to use.

Wishing you and Spot or Fluffy or Mittens a happy and safe New Year!
