Lately I've been hearing a pretty big pack of coyotes less than 50 yards away in the woods behind my house.
It's hard to tell how many there are and I can't find on google how large a pack can be. Does anyone know? If I had to guess by their howls, maybe a couple dozen but probably way off.
They never got this close to until a couple years ago, and I'm not sure why. I always thought they only lost their shyness around hiking trails and public parks, but I live in rural Mississippi. I can't imagine there were any more pets, chicken, etc... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2032370 Normal coyotes (most of the US and Canada) are solitary animals. They don't hunt in packs but a fair number can live in the same general area. These aren't dangerous bar rabies and as far as I now have never killed a human directly.
The eastern coyote, also called tweed wolves or the annoying "coywolf", in the Northeastern US and Canada they are actually hybrids of coyotes, eastern wolves, and domestic dogs. They can form hunting pairs or even small family based packs and grow about twice... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2032370 It's probably not as many as you think. Coyote family groups make a ton of noise, especially when the older ones head out and come back from hunting. Since you're in rural Mississippi, think of it as like when rednecks go to visit relatives--they see cousin Jimmy Joe's truck coming up the drive and all spill out of the trailer, hootin' and a' hollerin'.
The groups are usually a breeding pair, maybe 1 or 2 offspring from the previous year, and the current year's pups. They're not as cohesive or stable as wolf packs and tend to disperse into solo animals when there aren't any pups.
Since they're more noticeable now they may have dug out a den and had pups somewhere behind your house. Or (since I don't know you) maybe you've gotten more observant over the years and are now picking up on things you missed before. Who knows?
It's a nice sound though. I grew up in rural Texas and it always reminds me of summer evenings as a kid.
How hard is it? I'm not a vet or anything, but from the picture it looks as if it's just a cyst, or some other type of growth. If so you don't have to worry much, but it is a good idea to take her to the vet in case it's cancerous.
Also is that white stuff web? I fed it a cricket cut in pieces and within 2 days it died and got covered in that white stuff, normally I remove food every 3-4 days. I did not think land tarantulas would web that much, my OBT webbed his whole set up. But this one doesn't eat and it's done this several times how does it produce so much? Unless it's something else.
I love most of what AEF stands for, but am I the only one who cringes when people take advantage of animals like this? I'm slightly disappointed in you, Al. I thought you were better than this. Challenger shouldn't be flying around at a fucking football game. Why is the bald eagle only seen as a symbol of the United States? They're basically regarded as a mascot. . .
>>2032276 Yes, it is our national animal. I'm just saying we don't treat them with the respect they deserve. We nearly killed them in the 20th century through hunting and DDT, but we needed pesticides, so we dindu nuffin. They're seen by most people as an emblem of the United States, and nothing more.
Do you really think Al Cecere should have Challenger flying around in a crowded stadium? For someone who rehabilitates animals, that's not the right thing to do. Challenger should be kept at Pigeon Forge,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

where do dogs poop? cats poop in litter boxes, but what about dogs? my parents had a dog when i was a kid and it pooped outside in the lawn on the side of the house. but what about people with dogs without lawns, like apartment dwellers? can dogs be litter trained like cats? thank you for answering my questions.
I just take my dog outside. Of course, because it's not your lawn you should pick it up immediately. Some people use litter boxes, but usually use paper litter instead of the sandy stuff. There is also potty pads and fake grass pads to put inside. I'm not really sure how you're supposed to clean the grass pads though.
So my mate who lives at mine with my mum got a pair of hamsters and one of our two dogs keeps whining behind his room door and barking. My mum and mate say "it's fine, she's excited there's new animals."
Well, I personally think the dog's instincts are setting in and she views them as a threat in our own home. She's a shih szu (not stereotypical of being dangerous) but keeps walking around with her tail down, whining at all of us. When she was in front of the hamster cage on the bed she followed the hamsters with her eyes and had an... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I once saw a little girl show her dog her new hamster. Before I could get to them in time, that hamster was sucked down the rotties throat faster than piece of ham.
Some dogs are okay with small animals. My Aussie cat tale dog thinks my guinea pugs are puppies or something and will corral them between his arms and just lick them and eat their little poops like they are living candy dispensers
What's your stance on adopting an older dog? I'm looking into adopting my first dog, and all of the ones I'm interested in are like 5 to 7 years old medium to large size mutts, which just about pegs them as senior dogs. Personally, I'd love to adopt one of them, but I've been told that vet bills skyrocket with senior dogs.
i saw a german tv show lately which stated that the average dog is 6600€ in veterinarian stuff in his lifetime. In total a dog is about 13-14000 € with all expenses. (always thought they were much cheaper.)
I've been advised to get a first dog that's past the puppy stage but before it's a senior, so about 3-4 years. Dogs get old eventually, but I think their logic is that if I got a younger one I'd have a longer time with the dog before I'm swamped in vet bills
