Are Coyotes Dangerous to Cats, Dogs, or Other Pets?

A Mytle Beach coyote is a canid native to North America. They are much smaller and more basal than their close relatives which are wolves.

Hostility posed by coyotes
Coyotes are in fact very dangerous than it seems. They will not only attack pets, but will also attack humans. Therefore, keeping yourself on guards is highly recommended if you are living in areas prone to these animals.

Protecting your dogs from coyotes
• First keep a tight guard while the dog is outside: This is an important step when ensuring security of your dog. Never let your dog outside when you are not near it.
• Keep the dogs food and water inside: Pets’ food might attract these predators. Make sure that while the dog is feeding, it’s on the inside. Otherwise the dog may lose its life when feeding outside.
• Do not chain your dog while it is outside: Never keep your dog chained when it is outside. While chained a South Carolina coyote may easily attack and kill it.
• Never let a coyote play with your dog: You should not let your dog play with a coyote just because they seem happy doing so. The coyote might be luring your dog and may soon end its life.

Protecting your cats

• Provide escape routes for cats: You should ensure that you provide escape routes for cats when outside. This makes the cats easily escape when confronted by coyotes.
• Erect posts on open fields: Where are there are no trees, erects posts that the cat can climb on when faced by the coyote.
