The coyotes have been rather horrible of late
Traveling all over the whole farm in very large packs.
Not just the pack, who has decided this is their spot, but packs from on other farms, but close by.
Hanging out wherever they please. Traveling in daylight and dark. They know no fear.
Even coming into the yard now. I yelled at one just outside the back door two nights ago as it made rounds in the cows sleeping by the house. Nasty creature!
Our son-in-law, Cliff, said, “Okay, I can help out.”
Then Linkin, our oldest granddaughter, asked if she could also go with Cliff.
Plans were made to head into a dry, cold, frozen morning
Out to the Upper End, the Back Forty, and
To the point of Coyote Hill
Home again later in the morning
One down. Many more to go.
Your friend on a western Colorado farm,
P.S. Yes, I know there will be those who will leave nasty comments on the hunting of the coyotes. And NO! Coyotes do not live on ‘nuts, seeds, and berries’. Coyotes are carnivores…coyotes eat baby calves. Coyotes eat pheasants, chickens, Quail, rabbits, ‘wild kitties’, deer, and your lovely house cat/pet, they will eat dogs and puppies…coyotes are NOT friendly helpful creatures.
So, as a warning to you, if you leave me a scathing comment, your comment will be put in spam. Therefore, not allowing you to leave me comments.
And, yes, I am a friend…who lives on a farm, who believes in taking care of the farm and all the creatures who need the farm to live.
