Coyote ~vs~ Wienerdawg

Went out on Saturday eve for a few hours with my girl and came home to my nine year old Weinerdawg having survived a coyote attack in the back yard.

Poor guy has some serious bruising and a few puncture wounds on his neck, but is kicking, and that's pretty huge for a 14 pound dog.

Oh crap! Sorry to hear this, hope he recovers ok. Wow.


Guess he won't be wanting to hang out in the backyard much now.

Is the vet worried about any of it?

The size thing was a definite disadvantage for him, but Dachshund is "Badger Hound". He was made to go in head first into a hole, lock on to a angry, strong, toothed, and clawed animal, and drag the thing out no matter how unwilling it was. Though he's the pretty variant of the breed, not the working variant, he was a much better adversary than, say, a Shih Tzu. My mom had a Dachshund for a while. It's AMAZING how much more torque they can put down in reverse than in forwards. Definitely bread to travel in one direction!

You need to use sharpie to put a coyote silhouette on his side like an old fighter plane!

Dawgboy, I would definitely bring that dog to the vet for a shot of LA200 or some other broad-spectrum veterinary antibiotic. I learned the hard way after a coyote attack on my sheep. The ones that weren't killed outright became infected around bites that look just like those, and despite treatment, several had to be destroyed. I don't advocate using antibiotics as prophylactics, but in this case I definitely would.

Glad he survived! :gonk:
Definitely get him to a vet as he's 9 years old...most dogs start to develop heart murmurs after they're 7 years old (according to my vet anyways) so if he has a heart murmur any bacteria/infection from his bites could further affect his heart.
No way my wee dog could have survived a coyote attack...major kudos to the Dachshund :clap:

If your dog could talk, I bet he would be saying "you shoulda seen the other guy"

Glad he is ok.

Tough little guy! We have coyotes around here as well, always pocket a .22 pistol before taking our Jack Russell outside. Glad to see he came through relatively unscathed.

Pretty sure the dog already saw the vet since the wounds are all shaved, but I could be mistaken.

Tough little pooch, glad he made it through ok. Hope he fucked up that coyote bad.

Yeah, He saw the vet the night it happened, and again this morning, He is healing well and on Antibiotics. Helps to have a Vet tech girlfriend, the Emergency docs wanted $2900.00 for "tests" and she drove them down to $214.00.

I really think the spiked collar helped a lot, and I bet he got a lick in too.

Anybody think I could drop a full size Coyote with a Gamo whisper at close range? it's 1200fps and a lot quieter than a .22 or my .40... Thinking of baiting this one we have working the neighborhood.

I doubt it. If you are sure NO OTHER ANIMALS enter your backyard, you can pick up traps really cheap.

So it is "Legal" to kill a predator in the neighborhood, but not to discharge a firearm. Maybe I will get a giant live trap... I would like to get this one as I found out it's gotten 3 neighbor dogs and many many cats... Then tan the hide and make a coat for the Weenie...

Now this I fully support :)

what about finding a buddy with a bow if you don't have one yourself? Not sure on the legalities but that's usually a municipal thing.

Sounds like you need a bowhunter. Maybe someone in your local chapter is or knows someone who is? I could ask around my bowhunting buddies to see if there's anyone near you.

Or you could always get a bow/crossbow and take out the 'yote yourself.

We wanna see pics and a new coyote skin blanket for the dog.

It's illegal to discharge a firearm within x feet of a private residence in most everywhere. Double check the laws, but shooting that predator should be okay if done in a safe manner.

In Portland, the "discharging a firearm" thing has been construed as bows too. Be careful of that in your own area.

I have a 55 pound recurve, so I could use that... I think a live trap and then "Coup de Grace" is in my future...

:?

You mean someone could be banned from shooting their bow in their own backyard?

I have done just that from about 10 yards with my Gamo Silent Stalker. It will do it with a head shot right below the ear. But I live in the sticks, so there are no legal prohibitions of any kind here on firearms on your own private property. Glad the pup is fine.

Go get your hunting license and then follow the below rules. There are more of course, but this will get you started.

http://www.dfg.ca.gov/licensing/pdffile ... flyer1.pdf" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Rimfire firearms are legal for non-game animals (coyotes and ground squirrels primarily) and for sport
hunting of upland-game animals [hares (jackrabbits), cottontail, and tree squirrel]. However, for non-game
animals the Commission has prohibited use of lead projectiles in .22 rimfire or smaller firearms as part of
this regulation change in condor range.


And from http://www.fgc.ca.gov/regulations/curre ... lregs.aspx" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; - Focus mainly on "CHAPTER 6. NONGAME ANIMALS"
ยง472. General Provisions.
Except as otherwise provided in Sections 478 and 485 and subsections (a) through (d) below, nongame birds and mammals may not be taken.

(a) The following nongame birds and mammals may be taken at any time of the year and in any number except as prohibited in Chapter 6: English sparrow, starling, coyote, weasels, skunks, opossum, moles and rodents (excluding tree and flying squirrels, and those listed as furbearers, endangered or threatened species).

Do you have a low chain-link fence that the 'yote got over? That sucks. Might be time for a privacy fence.
