Problem: Perilous Pupping Season – Solution: Wolf Pee

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

How to Protect Pets from Coyotes

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. . .

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. Click here to better understand the predator urine  concept and its application.

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

Today’s Ask the PeeMan: When Coyotes Attack

Greetings from the North Woods where it is snowing AGAIN! Also, a Happy Pi Day to all those math types out there.

In an attempt to be more consistent in my blogging, I have decided to pass on inquiries that come to my Peemail inbox. I will start with an oldie but goodie …

In October 2012, Lori asked:

“I live in the middle of a residential neighborhood, but my dog was attacked IN MY BACKYARD by two coyotes. Do you have a product to keep them(coyotes)away?”

COYOTEPROBS

My answer:

WolfPee is what you need. Here is what Margery in Mass. had to say about a similar problem: “. . .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 big order soon. . .”

How to Keep Coyotes Out of Your Yard

Thousands of coyotes now roam suburban and urban yards and neighborhoods across America. News reports about coyote attacks on pets and other small animals are becoming more common. People are struggling to find ways of keeping them away. One completely natural, yet innovative solution is the use of wolf urine to repel coyotes.  According to the Wikipedia article Coyote: Interspecific predatory relationships, wolves are one of the few natural predators of coyotes and can compete for hunting habitat.

“The gray wolf is a significant predator of coyotes wherever their ranges overlap. Since the Yellowstone Gray Wolf Reintroduction in 1995 and 1996, the local coyote population went through a dramatic restructuring. Until the wolves returned, Yellowstone National Park had one of the densest and most stable coyote populations in America due to a lack of human impacts. Two years after the wolf reintroductions, the pre-wolf population of coyotes had been reduced 50% through both competitive exclusion and predation. In Grand Teton, coyote densities were 33% lower than normal in the areas where they coexisted with wolves, and 39% lower in the areas of Yellowstone where wolves were reintroduced.”

When coyotes believe wolves are in an area, they will move to a less hazardous habitat. By applying wolf urine around the perimeter of a yard, the homeowner can create the impression that wolves are nearby. The scent of urine is one of the primary ways an animal is warned of the presence of a predator and the smell of the wolf urine tells coyotes that this area could be a dangerous place. The coyote’s instincts kick in and they move to a new territory. In addition an added advantage to using wolf urine is that it is completely natural and safe to use around pets.
