We had a cougar in a woodsy area east of Kansas City. Two men had owned it, probably illegally, then dumped it when they broke up.

A spokesman from the state Department of Conservation told me recently that most cougars seen in settled areas are animals like that. Most likely their teeth have been filed, their claws have been removed, they can't hunt, and they are starving.

I've heard a rumor that "pet" cougars are favorites of drug dealsers. Wouldn't surprise me.

Anybody who sees a cougar where it shouldn't be should report it, for the animal's sake and for the sake of people it might hurt in its desperation.

Fact is, Greg, cougars have been reported in Illinois since at least 1960. I know that because a friend's father came face-to-face with one in a Boy Scout Camp outside Lorraine, IL. Cat never hurt anyone; the Scouts nicknamed it Alfie (for Alfred E. Neuman) and everyone lived harmoniously for years.

Cougars -- mountain lions, panthers, painters, pumas -- were in one form or another widespread across the US before the hand of man set foot. They are indigenous to Florida, for example, and still live there.

I don't think the Chicago "Tribune" would like being called a tabloid.

Do your own research. I retired from looking it up.

Well, Greg F... I WAS a "rough-and-tough, brawny woodsman" when I was a young man and I spect as much time in the bush as any of them. Fact is, you took what I said and pissed with it then and pissed on it.

Only difference is, I am a gentleman and I admit to my mistakes rather than hide behind bullshit to save face.

Soooo.... if you really were not shitting on me beacause I was dissing the asshole in the video... why were you shitting on me?

Oh... your question about "where you said that"... "See coyotes about every third day - or should I say eastern brush wolves in your chosen argot". Come on, Greg... get in the game.

I'll stop there. Fact is, from what you have said, you are an avid woodsman. I used to live and breathe it too, until health problems took it from me. I am sure, under different circumstances, we would "bond". But, buddy boy, I just cannot accept yer arguements in the way you state them. Yotes ain't wolves. Our "yotes" eat livestock, prey AND people. They ARE NOT yotes... the are wolves. Don't tell me OUR yotes ain't wolves.

Maybe we need to hash it out over a beer. If I ever get down to your neck of the woods, first round is on you.

So, Rap:

Agreed! Damn near anything has more validity than Blog-O-Pedia.

However:

1. , the problem is rarely with the animals but with the humans who interact with them.

Uh yeah, that's what I said. Several times. You're obviously still having problems comprehending the English language.

2.We're not talking about Australia. Wake up. Strike two

3. The article on California doesn't signify, the western coyote has had no cross-breeding with the grey wolf; nothing whatsoever to do with the current discussion. In addition, the California situation is a perfect example where the relentless spread of yuppie suburbia into wild areas impinges upon the wild animals concerned. Perfect example of why humans are the problem, not the coyotes. That and idiootic humans not respecting or knowing bugger-all about the resident population of wildlife..

4. From your Vermont article Quote : statistics indicate that the chances of being attacked by a coyote are far less that that of being attacked by a domestic pet. Guess you missed that. Statistics would also indicate that you're more likely to be struck by lightening twice on the same day and/or be abducted by space aliens than that of being attacked by a coyote.

5. An anamolous cougar in Chicago - assuming the tabloid story is true, also has nothing to do with the point under discussion.

6. .None of the things you've posted address the point I raised, that it is more likely for a person to be killed or injured by a domestic dog, horse, or goat than by a wolf, coyote, ort the mythical Coy-Dog or Coy-wolf.

Strike five, you're out. But thanks for playing.

And hey, just stay out of the woods, weenie - it ain't safe for the likes of you out there.

I doubt, Greg, that a group working with the University of Ohio Extension Services and the Wildlife Foundation are equivalent to Wikipedia.

But since you did ask, here's an article from the USDA. Here's a tidbit from down under (U. of Queensland). And finally, here's some words from Vermont; a nice bibliography is included, as are comparisons between human/dog and human/coyote interactions.

Here's an article from "National Geographic News" for you to think about -- and the similar reports from Chicagoland this past September and October.

Finally, the problem is rarely with the animals but with the humans who interact with them. A mountain goat faced me down in Glacier National Park; I left. I have no desire nor need to pet a bear cub or tease a bison -- I'll leave that to those whom the gene pool is better without.

There's no respite from wildlife in city life, Greg -- at least not in Canada. Our old tomcat got skunked a few weeks ago right in his own back yard, in the downest downtown this town has to offer. Moose are occasionally spotted in our suburbs; deer are common. Raccoons are so common the city has invested serious time, energy and public money in developing coon-proof bins for compostable waste. Bears are uncommon in city limits, but not unknown.

In eastern Ontario, coyotes are a problem mainly to farmers. I know people who raise sheep near Oxford Station, and they need guard dogs to protect their woolly investment from the wily critters. (The dogs do a good job.) Every now and then the Toronto-centred media get frantic about coyotes in the ravines that criss-cross the city, but I've never read an account of a coyote attack on a human. Maybe Torontonians are smart enough to avoid them; I think it more likely the coyotes are smart enough to avoid the Torontonians.

And finally gnu-

Where did you get the impression I don't know the difference between what used to be called in my bilology/taxonomy classes canis latrans and canis lupus? Certainly nothing I've posted here suggests any such thing.

Similarly, what is your assertion that I "approve of that twit's behaviour" based on? I didn't comment on the video AT ALL, pro or con. But for your information, yes, I think the guy is a real asshole.

In point of fact, 99% of the interactions between wild animals and humans that result in injury to humans are the result of the human acting the asshole in one way or another.

As for "dangerous" animals in the woods, in 50 years of hunting and extended backpack camping in NY, VT, NH, northern ME, and elsewhere in the lower 48, I've had serious problems that might have resulted in injury with only two species: domestic dogs and humans. The latter were considerably more dangerous. Oh yeah, and once I got too close to a porcupine - but that was entirely my own fault.

In general, I've always been amused that a good number of the rough-and-tough, brawny woodsman types are actually afraid of wild animals.
Perhaps THEY should saty out of the woods, or move to the cities.

Ta,

G.

Hullo, Jack - well the genetic studies I'bve read seen to suggest that the genetic mix of the coyptes (or "brush Wolves as gnu persistes in calling 'em) in both places are a pretty similar mix of grey wolf & coyote. "Coy-EWolves? please - most Eastern Coyotes have had an admixture of wolf DNA for quite some time.

As for frequency of sightings- one sighting approximately "every third day" is two to three times a week, not three times a day, genius.

But even assuming yhey are correct (albeit a large assumption) now do look up the number of hunmans, adults included, that are killed and maimed by domestic dogs on an annual basis.

So once we've killed off all the domestic dogs - a REAL invasive species-, we can tackle the much more minute coyote problem.

I am a litlle pissed that buddy played with him like that. Imagine what will happen when that yote gets near a human child and has no fear. People who don't understand shouldn't "play" with wild animals. And, imagine if that was an Easter Brush Wolf (falsely called yotes here).

I was just talking with my next door neighbour and he mentioned that a coyote has been hanging around his place fairly regularly and is often seen in his paddock with the horses. He was wondering if the 'yote was interested in the horses but I figure he may be more interested in what the horses leave in the field - my dog seems to find those buns tasty.

Here's a YouTube vid described as a coyote attack but it looks more like the healthy looking and well fed 'yote is more curious and playful rather than menacing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqVE9qfg7yI

I know it sounds like a definition dreamed up by Ambrose Bierce, but a species is "whatever the ranking expert on a given group says it is".

Members of different genera are usually unable to produce fertile offspring. See Liger and Tigeron.

It is more likely that different species within a genus can, but not always. Coyotes and Wolves seem to breed with no problems.

Subspecies should be able breed fully with each other since the criteria are usually just color variations and locality.

It has been said that "propinguity is the mother of romance" (Steven Stills?), but there can be no interbreeding when subspecies occupy completely distinct and isolated territories.

A few hundred years ago, the Coyote was not found east of the Mississippi River (as far as I know). It is able to walk accross bridges on our great rivers. The Coyote is a invasive species in this case.

Well, they are considered that in today's classification scheme.

We must assume that DNA evidence has been responsible for the changes, but in reality, most taxonomists feel the need to change the status of something now and the just to prove they are relevant.

Rarely does a new worker in a field look at a group and say "everything looks right to me" and leave things alone.

I learned them as Canis domesticus (pet dogs), Canis latrans (coyote) and Canis lupus (wolf). Now the domestic dog is called Canis lupus familiaris, the same species as a wolf. Canis domesticus is not used anymore.

you rarely see mountain lions. i never saw one when i lived in the rockies. when i lived a few hundred miles further south there was a sick and old one that started killing chickens. it likely had lost the baility ti hunt. locals shot it. there are the occasional stories out of the british columbis and alberta rockies of maountain lion attacks on humans. they are c\anny predators and will rarely be seen ntill they kill you. luckily that's rare. howeevr i had a young daughter when i lived in the rockies and i used to walk her to the school bus and meet her to walk back(about a quarter mile) just in case. we did have a deer living in a copse of trees nearby, so i took that as a sigh there wasn't a mountain lion aroundm but better safe than sorry.

Jack, the big-cat poop includes mountain lion poop, which a coyote probably recognizes. I'm pretty sure tiger poop gives off the same "great big predator" signals.

From observing my pet cats, I see that they have instincitve reactions which I cannot begin to understand. For example, there used to be a fire house near me whose engines sounded strangely like coyotes howling at the moon. My cat was terrified whenever she heard those sirens, but she had never been near a coyote in her life. How did she know?

My current cat was scared recently by a recording an owl. (We live in a big city.) Again, how did she know? Instinct, but how does it work?

Henry, you seem to be between a rock and a hard place. I know! Tell your housemate to pay for the big-cat poop and give her the responsibility of spreading it. I bet she goes for indoor cats in no time.

Four sounds like quite a few, though.

There is a yard spray sold out here in the West that is supposed to be derived from Mountain Lion urine.

I know unemployment is high, but I suspect than involves is a job that is hard to fill.

Rats are quite edible -- it's your cultural bias that prevents you from enjoying them. Do a web search for ways to cook rats and mice. Maggots are also edible and are 90% protein.

Hi, Henry. How many cats do you have? Do you have a colony, like might be on a farm, or do you have a small number, that might become housepets?

1. The best thing for the cats and for birds is to keep them in your house. The cats stay healthier, are more affectionate, and the birds can raise their young in safety. You've got to get them neutered, of course.

2. If that's not possible, I found a site where the Cheyenne Zoo sells big-cat feces. Buy some and put in around the yard. The coyotes will smell it and say "Mountain lions, tigers! We're out of here!"

However, it occurs to me it might freak out your kitties, too.

What to do, what to do...
