When I worked at Hoover Dam we would feed them bread and they would come up to about 5 feet to us and were fun to watch.
The humane response is, "when you are afraid of something or do not understand it...try to kill it".
P.S. I am not an anti-hunter.
Sometime back, and havent got the link but a woman in Canada was walking on a trail in a park of sorts (heard this on the news) by herslf as she did many times. They said that 2 coyotes killed her. I've seen a few down this way that while out calling them in and after they made me out, they wernt in no hurry to go about their buisness.
A neighbor of mine a while back had SEVERAL sheep killed by a pack of coyotes. Alot of the neighbors pet cats have come up missing as well.
My moms little/small dog 'bought got ate by one if we hadnt have been there to stop it.
IMO, the only good Coyote, is a DEAD coyote. They make fine furs as well!
