Wildlife / Coyotes in Florida
« on: January 17, 2019, 02:58:24 PM »
Here in Florida there has been a increase in coyotes running around in the neighborhoods.  Last night (1/16/19) a lady around the block from where I live let her dog out in the evening to go to the bathroom (which shes done hundreds of times before) and in a blink of an eye a coyote was lurking in the bushes and killed her dog.  It only took a few seconds and she never saw the coyote.  Neighbor contacted Florida Wildlife about capturing the coyote and they said they can't do anything unless it is captured.

I have asked before while walking my dog what to do when approached by another dog.  Your answer was carry pepper spray (which I now do all the time) or a large stick.

What are my legal options when it comes to wildlife like a coyote?   

thanks
