YOu could try a live trap. That's what I'd recommend since you're in a neighborhood, but you'll likely catch all the pets in the area, 100 possums and a dozen coons before you caught him. Just shoot it with a .22 next time you see it . IF you don't get a good shot just put lead in him it'll eventually take it out--just make sure it's a safe shot as far as people/houses go.

*theoretically* if there are no neighbor cats or dogs or any pets that roam arround that neighborhood you could put out some meat and poisn it, but check your local laws beforehand.

It's not the local laws you need to be concerned about it's the state law against poisioning wildlife and the federal laws regarding using whatever you poison them with in an improper manner. ;)

no, i believe this is the first time i suggested it. take a chill pil::ke:. yes shooting it would be more ethical and i would much rather him do that, but due to the situation i was just suggesting that. im sorry but i would rather that yote have a slow painful death and save other game than just let that thing walk and kill whatever it pleases.

If you are in Gwinnett in a neighborhood maybe it would be safer for everybody if you just called animal control and let them deal with it. It could be considered a threat to the neighborhood pets right? I'm sure they would come trap it.

Most if not all animal control agencies only handle domestic animal problems.

Not sure what area of Gwinnett you are, but saw one two days ago off Centerville-Rosebud near where I live. It is the third I have seen in a year. The first one, my labs jumped in the park. They wanted to play with it but the coyote would have none of that and ran straight back towards me, brushing my leg as it went by. Labs just looked at it and wagged their tails.:huh:

But what happens when a buzzard or any other animal wants to munch on that dead, Poisened coyote?
They die also. Due to the poisen.

I wouldn't worry about it. It looks like a young pup out exploring. Unless he found lots of juicy food, he won't hang around your back yard for long.

Dont get all poofed up.........someone always recommends poisoning when trying to get rid of a Varmint........it is NEVER a good idea, unless you are talking rats or the like.


To be honest, when I saw your post about poisoning, I was wondering the same thing,
Are you the guy that TELLS EVERYONE to do that??? You have no respect for LIFE.... The guy needs to trap or shoot it.
