A coyote that I let go out of my scopes view killed my favorite cat a couple months ago. He went missing and I found his body out by a fence line by a cattle feild. I set some traps, caught the coyote and shot him dead. I feel no remorse. Coyotes to me, are like cock roaches. Feelings you say? The coyote didn't even eat my cats body. It just tore it up. SO, if it can go around and kill whatever it pleases, and there are people like you who say "don't hurt the coyotes, they have feelings," I'll shoot any coyote I see. I will shoot to kill. If I wound, it will be like stomping on a roach and it crawling off.
A hit with a .22 is better than a miss with a .44
