I have a question.

11 replies 1 views Edited Dec 2, 2006
Ok, but before i say the question, I need to give you a little exposition:
 
2 nights ago:
 
I have a 6 month year old American Bulldog, and he's still considered a puppy.  He's not too big yet, but fairly stocky rounding him up to about 50 lbs.  He's an outdoor dog, and I have a fairly large backyard.  At night around dinner time, he sits by the back glass sliding door just in case someone opens it so he can come in. Well anyways, my mom walks by the door and screams. i run over and by the time i get there she has opened the door to allow the dog in quickly.  I asked what happened and she says she had just seen a large coyote in the backyar, about 15 ft away from my dog.  I was a bit skeptical on her over exaggeration of size, but it was enough to make me worried that my dog could've been attacked.
 
Last night:
 
We're eating dinner, and my mom says the dog is acting weird. I look over, and out of another window I see a strange looking animal coming towards it.  I sprint to the back door and see it; IT IS **bleep**ING HUGE!  I was shocked, it was the size of a german sheperd, i had no idea that a coyote could be that big.  He's stealthily walking towards my dog, no further then 10 ft way.  The coyote sees me and gets scared, sprinting off into the darkness.  I'm in complete shock.  THe coyote was probably mostly fur, and a lot larger in size then my dog, but in weight it looked only 40 pounds.  Now we're keeping my dog in the house.  And my dad is saying he is going to kill it.
 
Question:
 
Is it legal to shoot a coyote if it's in your back yard?  (I live in the Los Angeles County)

well its hard to trace the shot if you only fire one time, if your dad is a good shot.... and if its trying to attack your dog then yes you can shoot it...

you should probally check with your local authorities, or call your local animal control and maybe set up traps, because usually they travel in packs, i remember being at my grandmothers as a child and hearing them at night, sounded pretty scary

you ever been camping and seen bear tracks about 100 yards from your site, heard wild boars, and a mountain lion screaming all in one night? yea that was an interesting night, moutain lions make that kind of noise similar to a woman with a high pitch scream and nails on a chalkboard...
