Also asked, what can I use to scare coyotes away?
Throw small stones, sticks, tennis balls or anything else you can lay your hands on. Remember the intent is to scare and not to injure. Spray with a hose, if available, or a squirt gun filled with water and vinegar. Shake or throw a “coyote shaker”—a soda can filled with pennies or pebbles and sealed with duct tape.
Likewise, can a coyote climb a fence? Coyotes are AMAZING athletes and very smart. Most can clear-jump without touching a 5 foot fence. They can jump and get over a 6-7ft fence barely touching it with their paws – we've seen it live, it looks like they are levitating!
Herein, what smell do coyotes hate?
Smell has been used for a long time to keep coyotes away and their numbers from increasing. Most commonly used is wolf urine, moth balls and rags soaked in ammonia. These deterrents can be positioned around your yard to keep coyotes from entering.
Do Coyotes carry off their prey?
Coyotes take their kill to a safe place to eat. They may carry their prey up to a mile before consuming it. They don't leave much behind and tend to eat whatever they can fit in their mouth. In some cases they may even eat a leather collar on a pet.
