How many cats are killed by coyotes? — 8 Comments

  1. Coyotes are why 300AAC with a suppressor exists. Especially with a thermal scope. Just be aware of backstop, no more coyote.

    Neighborhood cats are friends. They also control burrowing rodents.

    Coyotes are vermin.

  2. Coyotes are the main reason my cats are indoor cats. I’ve seen them jump the 6 foot block wall behind my house–into the yard and then out. They will kill puppies and small dogs in enclosed backyards. One animal control my sister talked to says he has found up to 35 small collars in a coyote den in the ravines near suburban areas.

  3. Thankfully, there aren’t a whole lot of coyotes here.
    Most dangers for cats here aren’t vicious raccoons, dogs, or snakes.
    It’s MAN!

  4. Oh that picture is so sad, poor cat! How horrible to have coyotes around, it’s no wonder American people keep their cats in and safe, but it’s horrifying for feral cats to have that danger around.
    Again down to people in the beginning turning un-neutered cats out to fend for themselves and breed and start generations of ferals.
    I think we are very lucky to live in England!

  5. We hear about more small dogs being attacked by coyotes in the news here in Arizona, but I know my big brother hears about cat attacks by coyotes in the hilly area around Anaheim all the time. In fact he is sure his cat was killed by them. If they saw the attack coming I think cats would have a fighting chance due to their athletic skills to escape, but if it came down to a fight? I’m not so sure they would win. The fact is that cats don’t stay in the backyard so they run off somewhere and could be attacked with no human there to see it so how can we know? That dead cat in the maw of the coyote is sure sad.
    Thanks Michael.

  6. I think that cat is much faster and more agile and canclimb. It’s being caught by suprise that’s getting the cats. A one on one a cat would escape. But a suprise pounce is another thing since it’s not technically one on one until it’s too late for the cat.

    Red used to track and stalk foxes. Silly boy. It did worry me.

    • Perhaps the coyote preys on ill or old feral cats most of all. It is a bit like cats preying on ill or old birds. They struggle to catch fit birds which is why they prey many on rodents
