Sand Cay Farm caught a coyote in homemade live trap, was supposed to be IMPOSSIBLE

Sand Cay Farm’s Gerald designed a live trap out of an animal cage (actually a homemade monkey cage) to trap coyotes. He was told that it would not work. Coyotes are impossible to trap. Well, I guess they were wrong. Here is a female trapped in the cage. Coyotes have become a problem, killing newborn calves and domestic cats and dogs. The coyotes at Sand Cay Farm have killed a newborn calf and a cat. They have been traveling very close to the barns were the cats are. There have been numerous coyote attacks toward dogs and cats in all nearby towns. We will continue to trap these animals to save our own.

    @deerhunt2012 If you loose 39 chickens due to coyotes, you have a security problem. Your brother’s friend is feeding the coyotes. He needs to invest some time, effort and money and better secure the chicken house. Pick up eggs daily. Provide safe area where cats can easily escape to and leave no food laying around. The coyotes will then go back to killing oppossums, foxes, and other little animals and leave your brother’s place alone.

    OK, but when you live where coyotes are literally at the backdoor of the barn where the cats live and around the chicken coop, you cant secure anything good enough.
    My brothers friend just lost 39 chickens due to coyotes. Now thanks to us we’ve taken 5 coyotes of their farm

    he looks soooooooo nice, but i bet if u wer to let him out, or he found a way out, he would just run away and respect the fact that you let him out an ddidnt kill him. i have studied coyotes for over 40 years, i think i now what i am talking about. you should probrably drive somewhere at least 10 miles away and let him loose, he will not be able to find his way back.

    @deerhunt2012 Responsible pet owners don’t loose pets to wildlife. We have lots of cats, dogs, and coyotes on our farm and we secure our pets so that the coyotes don’t have an opportunity to feast on them. Besides, our coyotes are better at controlling their own populations. It’s us humans who are over populated and it is evident at how we are constantly building new homes.

    @pattypat50 What a fucking douche you are. While I do respect your opinion as you should respect mine and everyone elses that disagrees with you, your comment or at least parts of it make no sense whatsoever. You say to quit building homes in THEIR territories, but yet I can for sure say that where ever you live either is now or once was coyote territory. Sounds like a hypocrite to me. If you like coyotes so much, why dont you go and live with them, huh?

    Put, this girl in my backyard…there are no coyotes back there…nice woods, maybe she’ll find a mate eventually. Don’t listen to the pseudo-scientists who think that statistics don’t apply to everything as you just can’t have every variable involved …unless you’re omniscient!

    The major I edited out was Physics because I didn’t have room. Seriously buddy, you don’t even cite any sources but idiotically use your status as one who “works with nature” and as a Biologist to justify your point. You’re probably just a troll or some student who has no idea that certainty is never issued…even in mechanics we use statistical methods to analyze subatomic particle movement…you can’t rationally be certain! Please leave science for all our sake

    @zeeduk Oh, wow…you’re a biologist. Well, sir you are exactly the type of person that should be nowhere near science…biology is polluted enough with dimwits like yourself. While we’re throwing around credentials, I happen to have triple majored in Biology and Philosophy and worked as a cancer researcher for several years. We studied MYC oncogenes in their involvement in human neoplastic diseases. I was specifically focused on CCL6 and other cytokines and their interference with apoptosis.

    @ainulindale27 i will just let you live in your fantasy world ..Im a Biologist..Im telling you there would be NO surviving if you put that young coyote into another pairs territory…I dont claim to be an Expert in anything..Im telling you the facts of what will happen..I have personally seen it many times..would be nice if they could do a coombya and get along ..maybe you could go hold their paws and get them to see where they are wrong..=) get some education.then speak..no statistics, reality

    @zeeduk Ah, what am I thinking then..you work in nature! Let me bow to yet another self-appointed expert on youtube. So YOU would rather be shot than starve to death…interesting considering that you have no rational claim to moral authority to make such a decision regarding another; and (2) by shooting a coyote you guarantee its death, but by releasing it you offer it some chance of living…gee I wonder what the coyote would choose? I guess all those tagged coyotes who traveled 400 miles died

    @ainulindale27 I can guarantee you if you take that pup and toss it out in another alphas territory it will meet with a less than humane death..I can predict that outcome with certainy…its been tried and it always fails…in nature ..only the strong survive..

    @ainulindale27 hahaha well you need to do some home work..while you try to sound intelligent..you are completely ignorant on how things work in nature..I on the other hand work in nature and see it nearly everyday..sound scientific work has been done on over population and carrying capacities in nature..not all critters are going to live that is natures way..i would rather be shot than starve to death or be beaten to death..given the choice I would suppose most would rather go that way..

    @ainulindale27 i know tht and those are the “Fatalities” but some ppl still feed them and they gettin ovr tht fear so ppl are to blame too, that i wont disagree with but im being honest in my opinion. coyotes arent dumb animals they re pretty smart but still the fact tht theyre opportunists is scary and losing a pet is bad enough

    @zeeduk These arguments get really tiresome. They deal with agent-centered restrictions and I doubt that most of those who propose them keep intellectual consistency when conceptually applied elsewhere. The point is this: that neither you nor anyone else on earth knows the future, and therefore cannot justify killing something on the basis that “it’ll die a worse death later on.”

    There are only two reports of coyotes killing humans. There’s more of a chance that you’ll kill someone on the highway than a coyote will kill you or someone you know.

    From Ontario, Canada: Some nights I wake up to the eerie barks/yelps of a pack of coyotes who just made a kill. My 2 Labs can’t stand it! Our street was cleaned out of cats a few years back.
