How dangerous are these things? I just saw one for the 4th or 5th time in less than a month while I was out jogging. At first it looked like an undernourished German Shepperd but after looking at it under the light, sure enough, it was a coyote. You can hear them howling right now too. I usually have my ipod with me playing music as loud as it goes so these things could be on my tail and I wouldn't even know it. lol. Are they harmless? Or should Weedline start running with a 12 gauge?
I wouldn't pet one

About as dangerous as a dachund.
There are just big ass foxes, unless they are rabid of course.
Wikipedia says they rarely attack humans and when they do its not likely to be a serious injury due to their small size and unwillingness to kill a human
I guess that means if they attack its short lived and they run away after a few bites or something
Wtf? Very dangerous. Get a predator call and kill the lil bastards before they start coming up to your house
The ones I've come across have been by themselves- loners as you will. But after I see them I stand my ground and take out my earphones so I can hear and watch them. They always tuck tail and flee. But I know there are more because they always howl on the other side of the golf course like they are the Viet Kong ready to charge out in the woods after me. lol. But seriously, I've been googling too, and theses things don't seem to be bad unless they are in packs. Maybe a picket knife to just be sure.
Yeah, says they hurt in pairs so if you see two of them I guess be on your toes
Honestly they are not dangerous.
Unless you live in a surburban or city area, leave them alone.
They are scavengers not predators.
If you need to shoot them though all you need is a "predator call" or a "squirrel call" or and a .410
Well they've been coming up to my house. Messing with the deer and shat. Scared to let my dog out
Be careful with any small dogs and cats.
Man just rape the thing when you see it and show your dominance. Itll respect you after that
Not guilty y'all got to feel me
No way one is a danger unless rabid as said, as far as a pack, I once had a pack of them eating out of a gut pile from a deer that I just killed pretty close to me as I dragged the deer away and they would not follow me then to try n get the rest of the kill so, Id say your pretty safe on a jog. They are hard on deer/turkey ect..population though so do us hunters a favor and kill every one you see please and if you are lucky enough to find a pack of them then A FIREARM WITH 30+ ROUNDS is a GREAT weapon to kill lots of them at one time.
BTW they WILL most def kill your pets so just fyi..
They especially love bulldogs
If you can get your hands on a wolf or a cross bread with ALOT of wolf in it and can get it to make its presence known by howling ect.. it tends to keep the cyotes away... but then you have a wolf as a pet so..
small dogs, cats ect...meat
2 of my dogs would straight murder a Coyote
They won't bother you unless rabid, they are all other the place here, I scared one up when walking to the woods, I had my .40 on me and he was about 20 feet away but he ran from me as fast as he could and I let him, I won't let my children go back there but at 220 lbs the risk of getting hurt by an adult human is pretty high, you could get hurt but you will win. I had a really big one at the corner of the barn up on the hill when i was checking on the widow up there 2 years ago. I tried to run that one down with car but just because he was so big an she alone up there
I dream of a day when chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
One by itself isn't gonna bother you or anyone else, but get a group of them together and they can be very dangerous. I wouldn't recommend leaving your small dogs or cats outside by themselves either, especially at night.

They love to snap up pet cats

Dangerous to you in packs. Alone, they won't attack anything bigger than a fawn.
I worked for the railroad and had to deal with them for a year when I had to walk trains. They are smart so always keep an eye on it if you see one and always have an escape plan. (climbing or inside)
We have lost a LOT of ferrel cats lately
Incorrect they are predators. The will eat any small animal they can.
Something doesn't have to hunt humans to be a "predator".
