@Chumly,
there ya go.

now, an enterprising man of the woods could figger out a way to take care of his pesky neighbor problem at the same time as the coyotes...

(make sure the guy ain't doin' your wife first though, that could be real difficult to explain your way out of...)

@msolga,
I can't really explain why the bear-chair was in response to Rockhead's post, but in some strange way it seemed fitting.

Cheech Marin and Emma Sands starring in The Shrimp on the Barbie "Desire down under" ! Laughing

Who the heck are these two? And what do they have to do with your coyote problem, I ask?

@Rockhead,
Well What The Heck? In another month, our river is going to be crawling, that's right, crawling with Canada geese. Send 'em back, I say! Or let our roadrunners make a couple of Loonies in Canada.

I can't help myself. I have to tell you that a grizzly bear is a brown bear. I think you need to review your pricing structure.

Wish I could come up with a solution to the mouse-cat-coyote problem. I'm cogitating.

For some reason this situation reminds of the song about the old lady who swallowed a fly. I don't know why she swallowed a fly. Perhaps she'll die!
There was an old lady who swallowed a spider,
That wriggled and wiggled and tiggled inside her;
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;
I don't know why she swallowed a fly - Perhaps she'll die!
There was an old lady who swallowed a bird;
How absurd to swallow a bird.
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;
I don't know why she swallowed a fly - Perhaps she'll die!
There was an old lady who swallowed a cat;
Fancy that to swallow a cat!
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;
I don't know why she swallowed a fly - Perhaps she'll die!
There was an old lady that swallowed a dog;
What a hog, to swallow a dog;
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;
I don't know why she swallowed a fly - Perhaps she'll die!
There was an old lady who swallowed a cow,
I don't know how she swallowed a cow;
She swallowed the cow to catch the dog,
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;
I don't know why she swallowed a fly - Perhaps she'll die!
There was an old lady who swallowed a horse...
She's dead, of course!

While grizzlies may be brown, they are different than black bears which are sometimes called browns.

Why buy a bear Chumly, you could probably catch one pretty easily. In the last two weeks I've seen at least six... in different parts of BC.
In the next week or two, they'll probably be roaming the streets here, looking for garbage.

There was a big black bear roaming 'round the garbage a few nights ago.

Coyotes get very few cats because cats can climb and coyotes can't. Most cats are eaten by things like fishers (a sort of weasel) or barred owls. I know someone who studied coyotes for 20 years. He said the only time he saw a coyote eat a cat was when the cat was wounded and couldn't get away or roadkill. Keep your cats inside where they belong. They will eat any rodent that gets in your house. As others have mention, one of the best control of outside rodents are coyotes. Maybe you should get rid of the cats and adopt a coyote.

Below is information about fishers. Few people see them as they only come out at dusk and tend to stay hidden:

@Green Witch,
How are cats and/or coyotes going to keep mice out of my sports car, motorcycles, garage, garden sheds? Coyotes will not patrol right next to the house, and under the cars, and in sheds etc right?

One of my cats spent two weeks up a tree (he eventually jumped down) I figure he was up there due to coyotes, all the coyote would have to do is wait for the cat to come down, then chomp!

Check out this video of a coyote catching a cat, the cat was not wounded and yes it even had a tree to climb!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSibDHcNQ2Q&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fvideo%2Egoogle%2Eca%2Fvideosearch%3Fhl%3Den%26resnum%3D0%26q%3Dcoyote%2520catching%2520cat%26um%3D1%26ie%3DUTF%2D8%26sa%3DN%26tab%3Dwv&feature=player_embedded#t=14

Check out this video of a coyote catching a cat here in Vancouver, the coyote is blazingly fast, AFAICT the cat was healthy but did not have a chance!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaMi8Wb7y04&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fvideo%2Egoogle%2Eca%2Fvideosearch%3Fhl%3Den%26resnum%3D0%26q%3Dcoyote%2520catching%2520cat%26um%3D1%26ie%3DUTF%2D8%26sa%3DN%26tab%3Dwv&feature=player_embedded

Check out this video of a coyote and a cat again AFAICT the cat was healthy but I'll bet it got eaten too, this time however the camera does not show

@Rockhead,
I'm liking it!

But as a true-blood Canadian, I don't know about all them African Mambo. Let's go fer the bloodthirsty ferocious Wolverine http://animal.discovery.com/videos/mutual-of-omahas-wild-kingdom-dangerous-or-in-danger.html

Sadly this misunderstood creature is likely to soon be extinct...such is stupidity in the name of progress.

I met a wolverine once. I didn't know what it was. I was 7 months pregnant. My ex, hitler, took me backpacking up at Yoho national park. I had never been backpacking, I didn't know what it entailed, I was young and apparently very stupid.
I tend to learn things the hard way. lol
Any way... for three, long hot days (30+ above), not a cloud in the sky, we hiked and camped along the Kicking Horse river, climbed up to glacier one day and the next day did the switchbacks up to the top of Twin Falls. I was exhausted and sun burnt when we finally made our way out of the bush.
http://www.globusjourneys.com/Common/Images/Destinations/emerald-lake.jpg
As I crossed the narrow pedestrian bridge near Emerald lake, this funny looking animal entered the bridge and came towards me. We met in the middle, It had the most beautiful fur I've ever seen. He sniffed me, I pet him and he purred. I thought he was an otter.
Then he walked away.
When we got back to the Takakkaw Falls campground the next day, the park warden and staff were having an info night. I asked them about the curious beast I had met, when I described it and pointed it out in his book, he went pale. He couldn't believe it. His only explanation for why I wasn't a pile of bloddy ribbons was that I was pregnant or beyond lucky.

@Ceili,
Your ex "hitler"!?

Extra-yipes on Wolverine, although the video does suggest they are misunderstood, and it's clear by far the most dangerous animal to man is man.
