Discover How You Can Keep Your Cat Safe From Coyotes

Intro

How to keep your cats safe from coyotes should be on everyones mind, especially people that let their cats out of the house from time to time.

The cockroach of predators? Coyotes now live in every state but Hawaii and thrive around human civilization, eating our garbage and sometimes, even our pets. Here’s what you can do about the pesky critters.

​How To Keep Your Pets Safe From Coyotes

The cockroach of predators? Coyotes now live in every state but Hawaii and thrive around human civilization, eating our garbage and sometimes, even our pets. Here’s what you can do about the pesky critters.

As Gareth highlighted a couple weeks ago, coyote populations have spread down the eastern seaboard where a new, larger species has taken over. These Eastern Coyotes are big enough to take down a deer, much less a toy poodle. Coyotes also live in cities, you’ll even occasionally see them in Manhattan.

At the risk of sounding like a fear monger, coyotes can also attack humans. While, like most other animal attacks, this is a very rare occurrence, 160 coyote-on-human attacks were documented nationally in the 30 years preceding 2006. To put that in perspective, the CDC says 4.5 million Americans are bitten by dogs each year. So, while the possibility is there, worry more about your cats, dogs and other animals.
