We live near a creek with ducks - the Coyotes cleaned out all of the nests and killed/ate the ducklings.
They like water features. McKinney is over run with the yotes we live on a golf course and they walk with impunity down the street and through yards to and from the water ponds. They trip my motion sensor lights and CCTV all the time. To bad city ordinance forbids discharging a firearm. My 300AAC would make short work of them on the quiet. Out in open country we callem in with electronic calls and blast them with 22_250s or in my case 25_06 85gr 3300+fps makes for an impressive redmist show.
