I live waaaaaaaaay out and we have lots of coyotes. If we see them too close to our cattle or the horses or headquarters, we of course have to... well... get rid of them. (Really praying no PETA people are on here, prolly shouldn't be saying this.) But it's really the humane thing to do, especially since if we let them get too close they start killing off our foals, calves, and cats. If you are in a rural enough area and on private property, you legally can "get rid of the coyote", if you are a good enough shot. It's what we do; it's fast, easy, painless, and puts the poor animal out of it's misery. But StarryEyedTiger's post was good; they legally cannot refuse this. It's literally abuse to let this coyote continue to suffer. Good luck with it!
