  • My sister gets them on the farm. Tomorrow have your son or hubby go around and pee in the yard. Seriously. Mark the territory. And call animal patrol.

  • When we were stationed in Ft. Irwin, Ca., I would see them in our yard, the parking lot at the PX, Commissary..basically - everywhere.

  • LMAO @ thinking of my hubby pee around the yard! Oh my side hurts!
    We live right next to a field and we knew they were around but have never had them come thru the yard till now.

  • "When we were stationed in Ft. Irwin, Ca., I would see them in our yard, the parking lot at the PX, Commissary..basically - everywhere."

    I was up at Fort Irwin a few weeks ago, and there's a coyote who hangs around the visitor center, looking for food.

    We sometimes have them pass through the greenbelt behind out house, and every once in a while I see a dead one by the freeway.

  • I haven't seen any in our yard but when we have gone on late night walks I have seen a few. We live in a community on the shores of Lake Erie and foxes, coyotes, skunks and raccoons live around here and they come in to the village that I live in all of the time. One night last week I was sound asleep and at 4:30 I was woken up by the most horrible screams. At first I though my Yorkie was hurt but he was fine and then it sounded like a bird that was caught/hurt but when I looked out the front window it was 3 raccoons fighting over territory. Scared the crud out of me!

  • No coyotes, but we've had a bobcat stroll across the patio on more than one occasion, and even had a moutain lion around a time or two. MIL has had coyotes come up to her fence but they can't get over or through it like the cats can. Can you say YIKES!!!

  • I live in the National Forrest so we have all kinds of creatures here. If it isn't a deer it's a racoon or now a damn coyete. And let's not forget the woodpecker!

  • We have them at my parents' house. They always eat the outside cats/kittens, and every time we go to visit my DH brings his gun and coyote calls(he is an avid coyote hunter, with calls and videos-the works!) and he tries to kill 'em all, but for some strange reason they keep reproducing! lol
