Coyote removal job. Coyotes can be extremely elusive. They are predators and coyotes are used to preying on other animals for food. So when you set up a coyote trap you have to be aware of this.
I made sure that I didn’t leave any of my human scent on the traps or the bait. If they can smell you on the trap, chances are they aren’t going into them. Also, I was very sure that I set the trap in a place that was kind of hidden yet accessible. This way, they still think that they’ve found the food and it wasn’t left for them. After I did the inspection, consult and set up of the traps I left very happy with what I did.
I had a very strong feeling that I was going to catch the culprit(s) responsible for killing my customers dog. Sure enough, the very next day I had a coyote pickup in my box. The customer actually called and left a message at around midnight letting me know how happy she was that we caught it. I explained to her that there might be others and we actually ended up catching one more. Catching a coyote is a feat in itself because of how smart they are.
So I did what anyone else would do. I took a bunch of photos with it and bragged about it for a week. Our other technicians did not find it as amusing as I did. But it sure felt great. And now our customer can go get a dog and not worry about potential dangers lurking around.
Until next time,
