Has anyone had experience with hiring a trapper to set snares for Coyotes?
I have an appointment with the county agricultural trapper to set snares on my property for the Coyotes that have killed two of my cats, a neighbors cat, numerous chickens, wounded a goat and suspected of nabbing a couple of small dogs in the last 3 months in the 20 acre radius of our 3 homes.
I am at my wits end and have decided these ‘problem’ animals have to be eliminated.
From what I am told if you kill the alpha male of the pack the rest will disperse for new territory and supposedly a 7 yr. cycle of respite will be the result.
I am not a believer in random killing of wildlife but this situation is out of hand with these animals attacking in broad daylight as early as 2 o’ clock in the afternoon. Nothing is safe!
