There has been a string of coyote attacks on toddlers in southern California. Due to the high population of coyotes on Camp Pendleton, I just wanted to warn parents to keep a close eye on small children when outside. Check out the sites for more info:
A dog was killed 4 houses down about a month ago, the owner let it out to pee in the morning and heard it screaming. It was ripped into pieces... I also got a notice about rattle snakes in san onofre 2
My son told me he saw a coyote in the field behind our house the other day. He said "I saw it mom and I had to play like I was dead so it would go away!"
OOOOOOH Sh*ts! This is the WORST thing you could do, son! He is almost 9. Apparently we need to get the boy in Cub Scouts STAT!
I told him no more going in the field at all.
I know this is a little off the subject but where my parents live (in AZ) the coyotes will jump over 5 ft. stucco walls just to eat other dog. My paretns had friends that were outside with two Gold Retriever (sp.?)pups and 3 coyotes jumped over and grabbed them and took off with them! They will do ANYTHING for food!
there are also buffalo on CP...Iam so not joking...Hubby had seen a few while driving out to Polgus(SP?!?)
omg my hubby told me there was buffalo too over there near polgus and I never believed him I thought he was just pulling my chain.lol
guys Camp Pendleton is a wild life reserve..... Crazy huh? But did you know you arent suppose to KILL the rattle snack, because they are protected by law on a wild life reserve!! Thats what they told us... yeah right.. Im killing that thing..
The coyotes have been bad over here since the fires pushed them up closer. This is not anything new. Not at all. During the fires all the wildlife came closer because they had nowhere to go.
Don't let the article freak you out. They are ALWAYS here. This used to be a ranch. A huge flipping ranch. Lions and tigers and bears OH MY!
i'm in wm2 and i have seen them on our street. when they are close to us my dogs freak out. they only bark in the house if there is a coyote near by. a few weeks ago my friend was over and it was like 1am and we went outside....right across the street right next to the houses. at least it was only one. you really have to beware when they are in packs. they are more aggressive when in packs. i'm not saying that you shouldn't be careful of just one....that would be dumb!
The morning of the wildfires at about 4am there was a coyote right behind my house (our house backs to a field) it was howling and whining so bad it woke me up. I thought someone was in my back yard screwing with me. I think it was trying to warn us (as ridiculous as it sounds) we didn't even know about the fire til later that morning. It kept coming back too.
