Coyotes are not native to Ohio. They have moved in from the west because we have made it attractive for them to exist here. They have no more right to be here than the Damn mexicans or somalis. Either control the population now or it will get worse. A bounty is the best way. Give $10 for a coyote,$15 for a mex or somaili.<quoted text>
First of all, it is not certain that it was a coyote. Next, this is what happens when the whole ecological system is out of balance. We develop more land and animals have no choice but to live in close proximity to us. And now everyone wants to kill these animals much like we took out the wolves years ago out west. We all need to learn how to live with coyotes. They are a key piece in controlling deer and other wildlife. No, I don't want my children or pets hurt by coyotes and it would be easier if we didn't have to worry about them, but they have the right to be among us.
