Is it illegal to kill coyotes on your own property?
First, I want to state that I love animals and I have a great respect for nature. I would never kill any animal without good reason, especially if I wasn’t going to eat it. So please refrain from anything that does not answer my question.
I live in the hills in Southern California. I have a field and a large pond on my property. We have pet geese and ducks. We have a huge coyote problem. Over the past two year coyotes have killed four of my geese, two ducks, two chickens and my neighbors french bulldog puppy.
I want to put bait out and kill a coyote. I don’t wait to kill all of them in the area. I just want to kill one or two and hope that group will stay away for a while.
Also, I would be using a bow and arrow. There are other houses near by and I’m pretty sure I can fire a gun.
So my question: Is it legal for my to kill a coyote?
