Coyotes are not a problem ! Idiots who throw the remains of their fast food out the windows of their cars are a problem!
Homeowners who let their small pets wonder through the neighborhood and annoy neighbors are a problem!
Ferrel cats are a problem!

Coyotes are natural janitors! Leave them alone!
Nobama is right

Thank you for getting it right here. Leave the coyotes alone.
Love the "Nobama" tag too. I agree 100% with that as well...

You are ignorant of what the situation is in Huntington Beach if you think coyotes are not a problem. I don't live in a mobile home park. I live in a normal neighborhood in downtown Huntington Beach and yesterday at 7:00 my dog was in the back yard going to the bathroom and a huge coyote jumped over the 7' wall and grabbed my dog in his mouth and almost got away with him before I chased him off. WTF, my daughter could have been out there playing with the dog and she wouldn't have been as tough as the dog. If I have to choose between coyotes "natural janitors" and my family; you can guess who's going to get it. Animal control said there is nothing they can do if the coyote doesn't wait for them to show up.
Guess what? Anywhere else in the world, besides our hippie engorged California; the response would be, we will trap the coyotes and move or kill them. Simple. NoBama, please take your baby for a walk in the park this evening. Don't mind the coyotes, I'll bet your family's life that you will be fine.

I wish I was a liar! Look into why our city councilman tried to propose a local law to prevent people from feeding the coyotes. Coyotes have unnaturally over bread, the animals that used to control the coyote population have been removed. Man is the last predator left in town to control their population. You are one of the people in denial that would rather wait until someone dies before anything is done. Historically coyote attacks on people are rare, usually coyote attacks on people occur when a coyote has become comfortable around people, often as a result of people feeding them. I don't want a coyote fur coat. I want to live in a safe beach town without fear of attack from wild animals. Nobama, if someone gets hurt, you and your fang loving hippie friends will be responsible. Let me guess, you don't have babies or small dogs or cats. Since your not personally at risk of being attacked you believe it's natural, "survival of the fittest".
Grow up and put down your bong. We have a problem and it's too many Coyotes!

Hippie !? Bong !?
You stupid moron ! I have never in my life as much as grew long hair ! Nor have I ever had a bog even near me! Nor have I ever smoked anything stronger than a common cigarette ! Stop lying you jack-ass and devote some time to improving your education and usage of the English language! There are NO coyote attacks on humans...period ! You sad excuse for a human being. You probably own one of those half rat yappers that envoy all the neighbors and what you saw, if anything, was a real dog !

Nobama, I apologize if I hurt your feelings. I used to have the same disposition for the coyotes. I would see them at the parks and schools in the evenings chasing down jack rabbits. I never had a problem with them and actually thought it was amazing to have natural predators living so close without any problems with humans.
The day a coyote jumped the wall of our yard and attacked my dog was the day I realized they have stepped up their game and outgrown their small environment in search of more methods of food.
I might be old fashioned but if your pit bull came into my yard and attacked my dog, I would have your pet killed. Why would I do any less for a species that is not domesticated to be mans best friend?
I'm not a liar or a moron. I don't understand your blind defense for a wild animal that has proven to be a danger for public well being.
As for your statement "No coyote attacks on humans", that statement is false. When I spoke to animal control on Friday he told me a few days ago there was a man sleeping in the park who was bit in the head by a coyote.
In the "normal" wild I have nothing against the coyotes. I don't even mind them in the parks. I just can't stand the fact they are jumping walls hunting down household pets. My story is true. Stop feeding the coyotes!

I don't mind the coyotes in parks...I like them there!
I do NOT like the bums sleeping in the parks and if the coyotes keep them out, that's great! Don't want a coyote to eat your dog ? Don't allow it to run around crapping on your neighbor's lawns! And even better, get a REAL dog, one that doesn't look like a cross with a rat and that doesn't yap incessantly for no reason all day long! As to your not being a moron....I think you proved my point quite well!!! Period.

Your point has not been proved. The coyotes are not just staying in the park biting bums. They jumped my back wall and attacked my dog. My dog is not a little rat and was too big to be easily killed but it did get the bit up pretty bad to the point that it cost a couple thousand dollars to have the vet patch him up. THIS WAS MY FENCED IN BACK YARD. I'm not a liar. The fact these coyotes have gotten so comfortable around people makes me afraid that they might jump over the fence and hurt my baby playing in the back yard. I'm not going to wait for a real disaster to happen before I do something. I don't want to run barbed wire around my fence like Compton. I will keep my 357 loaded and ready to pick off any stray coyotes that decide to bounce into my back yard. I believe the fish and game should step in and control the situation before it comes to that. Encouraging the Fish and Game not to take action only pushes the people who are getting attacked to defend themselves and their property as best they can.

If you actually own a 357, that might be a good use for it and you would be fully justified....
But I don't think you actually own one ! You sound like a whiner, a complainer and probably an Ohbummer voter.

Nobamma - you are F*cking asshole!!!! I'd love to kick your ass and then throw your limp carcass to the coyotes. What a f*cking jerk you are!!!! HBdad speaks rational, common sense....and you just don't "get it" ....what a cock. it's obvious you had problems listening in school by your utter lack of being able to listen and understand what is being discussed here. You drag the rest of mankind down with your type of i.q. display. I am very embarrassed for you.

Nobama people like you make me hate computers and the pussy generation they spawned. All tough talk and ignorance behind a computer screen, I agree with another HB dad, I too would LOVE to beat the life out of you and throw you to the coyotes. I live in south Texas and coyotes are not frightened timid little creatures, they will kill large dogs, calf's, 100 pound +goats, and man I like California for all its freedom but that hippy shits going to get you guys hurt, well not you but some kiddos that's the sad part.

I am not suprised at the ignorance of people, but only by their relentless bantoring and failure to see what is truly happening. Thank goodness the coyotes have not continued to be aproblem here in my neighborhood this year, as they were last year. It was pretty scary when my son rode his bike home from school and at 3 o'clock in the afternoon, the coyotes were running down the streets. They had only been coming out at night, in fact, I had one at my front screen door peering in late at night, but when the coyotes became bolder, that is when it became evident that no one really knows what they may be capable of doing. I have lived in HB since 1970, adn never had seen this problem here before. I have no objection to animal control doing whatever it takes to get the situation under control, even if it means killing them. Why does one insist that some dogs are not worth calling dogs, when clearly, the dog deserves a right to be able to roam free in the yard, as well as children. Animal control will kill cats and dogs when they have no home, because of overpopulation, why not coyotes? Are we in need of a great flood to control that which is out of control? Clearly, some are in need of repentance.

Like it was said above THERE IS NO NATURAL PREDATOR FOR THE COYOTES OTHER THAN MAN, its a no win situation unfortunatly over population has depleted the coyotes hunting grounds,....id say get rid of some people and make room for the coyote to hunt ,now that's not gonna happen anytime soon. ..so they must do what is best for humans ,and that would be ....yup you guessed it one is to relocate them ,...two is to trap and put to sleep,..or just plain eradicate them all .....sucks for the coyote but I would not mant to read a headline saying small child was taken by hungry cayo to feed he's own,.....
