If a wild animal acts in a manner very different from its normal pattern (e.g., a bat attacks you) it might very well be rabid and you would do well to try to capture or kill it (without damaging the brain) and deliver it to your local public health people.

However, if a coyote follows you it means that it thinks you might be or might become food. Or it could be in love with you or think you have dog biscuits in your pocket. On the other hand, if you're near its den you might be considered a threat to the babies and it WILL attack, just as a bear or even a mouse would.

If you go down in the woods today and you are worried about being attacked, pack a pistol and shoot INTO THE GROUND (not into the air, for what goes up must come down and it might come down on someone's head). Or carry a blank starter pistol. Or a very loud whistle. Or a portable marine boat horn.

If you ARE attacked (unlikely), do as Kendall said and go for the eyes. Use a stick as a spear. Fight back, but note: this does not apply to bears! I suggest you read up on the subject of animal attacks.

read your own article, Crank-El:

"In May 2011, an analysis of red wolf, Eastern wolf, gray wolf, and dog genomes revealed that the red wolf was 76-80 percent coyote and only 20-24 percent gray wolf, suggesting that the red wolf is actually much more coyote in origin than the Eastern wolf."

We are quite literally in the middle of the woods -- 33 acres of trees and rock on a south slope in Nottingham, New Hampshuh.

There are a lot of coyotes around, but we've never had any problems with them. Raccoons, foxes or skunks are more likely to be rabid. Just stay away from sick acting animals. I started keeping our very savvy lady cat, Sabine, inside a few years ago after spotting a fisher cat (variety of martin) very close to the back quarterdeck.

Biggest coyote I ever saw was trotting down the sidewalk on Rte 33 in Portsmouth, which is a pretty decent-sized city. It wasn't very far from Borthwick Ave. where both the hospital and several large medical buildings are. There have been problems with coyotes harrassing people in those parking lots. I did a double take when I saw this guy -- he was HUGE. Size of a large German shepherd. My first thought was "wolf". And a bit of a shock to see it right alongside a busy highway in a mixed business and residential area.

Then again, all the black bear I see are right in the thick of civilization, too. I know we have them in our woods, but I've never seen them there.

We have a fair number of both deer and coyotes right in downtown Wichita, Kansas on occasion. 'Possums are just about everywhere in town, and I've been forced to "dispatch" one that aggressively attacked our dog a few years back. Raccons aren't too common in town but are seen occasionally. (I've seen more dense 'coon populations in downtown Philadelphia.)

Some time ago, we found a porcupine dozing in front of the door to the Courthouse in Boulder Colorado. (We assumed he(?) was waiting for them to open so he could file a complaint about a Krinkle.)

Skunks aren't much more common here (in town visibly) than Armadillos. The skunks are natives, but the Armadillos are immigrants from Texas mostly - hence somewhat unwanted.

Eagles nest nearby, and one pair nested on top of a downtown building for several years.

The most "objectionable" are perhaps the half dozen flocks (50+ per flock) of GEESE that local idiots have been feeding long enough that they've forgotten how to migrate as good geese should do. (That stuff is really sticky when you step on a fresh one, and some small ponds have suffered major algae blooms that kills the fish, from all the gooseshit.)

The beasts that killed Taylor Mitchell (link in first message on thread) are called Eastern Coyote (Coywolf) and are a cross between Timber (grey) Wolves and coyotes. They grow much larger and stronger than the common coyote and they hunt in family packs like wolves.

Forgive me Mudcat for taking Krinkle seriously even though we are just his puzzle and toy.   When I drive trough South Carolina they have public service announcements saying not to hunt coyotes at night because they look and act so much like red wolves. Perhaps they are not as endangered as you thought.

This article says the species may even be a cross between wolves and Coyotes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_wolf

Obviously Mr. Krinkle you have as much right to the woods as the coyote/wolf/dog, whatever it is. (Carol says it is probably a chupacabra) But animals being spared the pleasure of dealing with lawyers are blissfully unaware of your rights.

One of which is the right to bear arms. If it were me I would purchase a light, easy to carry, double barreled 410 gauge shot gun or pistol, one barrel to shoot into the ground as previously suggested, one barrel to "go for the eyes" as Kendall so sagely suggested.

The 410 would have plenty of stopping power for a dog or Coyote. It would not have the range to endanger distant people or animals with a missed shot.

Carol suggests that bear repellant, (large cans of pepper spray) would be effective with the side effect of not killing the animal. She always thinks of the humane way. She used to do animal rescue and work in a zoo.

If you do kill an attacking coyote. Save the head so that they can test it for rabies.

Did you know that most most US chupacabra sightings in the US turn out to be coyotes with extreme mange?

Rap... "If you ARE attacked (unlikely), do as Kendall said and go for the eyes. Use a stick as a spear. Fight back, but note: this does not apply to bears!"

Sticks work well on bears if you only have a stick. Just don't go for the eyes... go for the mouth if you can, ie, if it's open.

There have been many threads in this forum with a lot of info and they are worth reading if you you think you may ever encounter a bear, yote, wolf, fox....

As for any wild animals owning any territory, I am of the opinion that I won't mess with them if they don't mess with me. Now, I respect their HOME territory and I KNOW there are places I just should not go into. And I don't do that. BUT, if I am there by mistake as when I explore new territory, I expect them to give me a break and I don't go back. If I am in "neutral" territory and they mess with me, they are dead. If they mess with me in my territory, I terminate them with extreme prejudice after appropriate warning(s).

Tree huggers who have never be amongst the trees or have never farmed are laughable to me. Hmmm... would be laughable if their ignorance wasn't so detrimental to folks that live off the land.

If you have to shoot a wild animal, other than a game animal, walk away as quickly as you can.

As soon as the body stops producing the normal gases such as CO2, the fleas jump to the first live replacement they can find, which will be you.

The fleas may carry plague, rabies or another ones of dozens of diseases.

when i lived in the deep remote rocky mountains with grizzly bear neighbours and lots of black bears. there were coyotes and timber wolves, although never at the same time.

they used to call grizzlies fool killers. there were people who would say they had as much right to be in the woods as bears, and they's get killed every now and then if you live in wild country you have take notice of what's around and act intelligently. i had no guns. i did share a pack of a dozen or so malamutes(we sold them occasionally so the number varried), most predators will veer aroung big dogs and take the eaay route. in the winter when i was cross country skying i would see timber wolves fairly close--for about ten seconds. they don't hang around. very imressive animals. when grizzlies were around i made as wide a berth as possible.grizzlies actually waken once or twice in the winter, unlike black bears. that's when you really don't want to meet one, they are hungry then.

i was never bothered by coyotes, but if someone showed up with a gun theysatyed much further away. they understood what a gun was. you rarely see wolves near people and not for very long.

and crank-el, i like those grizzlies a lot more then i like you, and they made a lot more sense.

Oh, hell's bells! We have wolf, grizzly and black bear, mountain lion, fox, coyote, skunk, and God alone knows what else in these here hills. The worst I came across was a rattlesnake and I threw that (living) into the river I was fishing. Yeah, I sometimes carry a pistol into the brush (sage, among other types), but I haven't had to use it on an animal yet -- the four-legged types will leave you alone unless a) you do something really stupid, like try to pet one or, b) they're rabid or otherwise sick.

In the animal world I'm more concerned with wasps or a spider in the outhouse than I am about being attacked by a coyote, mountain lion, or wolf.

On the other hand, I am far more concerned about two legged types because they're DAMNED unpredictable.
