We keep getting emailed notices from our HOA that coyotes have been eating neighborhood cats. We hear them sometimes but haven't seen one yet. We have more and more deer too...they are a menace at dawn and dusk.

I wonder how one would go about culling the coyote herd without running afoul of the law...

Well that happens around here but generally it is in houses built where the coyotes lived first.

The deer were here long before our home was, but the coyotes are a relatively new addition. The police swat team culled the deer and coyote herds in one of the big local cemeteries a couple of years ago...threw the coyote carcasses in the dumpster and butchered the deer for a local food bank. I doubt the boys in blue would appreciate me doing my own cull.

I read somewhere that raccoons used to be strictly rural animals, but adapted and became urbanized. The first urban sightings were in Cincinnati in the 1920s.

Coyotes are extremely adaptable and can do very well in suburban environments.
Pet cats around me are generally eaten by fishers, we used to see and hear them a lot before a total moron neighbor hired somebody to trap them illegally. I'd much rather have the fishers than this horrible neighbor and his cats that go in the sandy play area we added for our daughter.

On a side note, I lived in a neighborhood with TONS of squirrels. A neighbor found one had chewed through part of his attic and was staring at him from a hole chewed in his living room ceiling so he declared war on the squirrels. He just got a pellet gun and would sit in his kitchen with the window open, knocking them out of trees.

All was fine and dandy until he aimed wrong and shot out the 4 foot triple paned glass sliding door at the neighbor's house. His wife took the pellet gun away...

How big are the lots and do you live in an area designated as no shooting. Cincinnati, OH I would suspect is vehemently anti gun, anti hunting. But you could live trap them. Submerging the live trap into a 64 gallon yard waste container is very quiet.

I'm not quite sure how my dogs would fare with a pack of coyotes...the boys could likely take out one, either kill it or at least run it off, but a pack could probably kill my dogs. The 1 year old is 80 lbs, give or take and the 6 month old one is about 65 lbs, so they are decent-sized but not huge.

That's how we deal with animals we trap at work...throw the havahart trap in the pond with a rope attached, and when the bubbles stop, time's up. They used to poison raccoons with a neurotoxin in diet Coke (they perferred diet to regular for some reason) but they had this bad habit of wandering around drunkenly, making bystanders think they were rabid and freaking people out.

We live outside the City limits, but even the townships are pretty tight about discharging firearms. It's a subdivision with 1/4 acre lots but a HUGE greenspace behind that backs onto a county forest that is 1300 acres.
