I am in East Texas, and have a ton of coyotes around here, and have 5 different pastures.. I see my herds chase those critters from one pasture to another, with the next herd waiting to take over. They are either chased out of here or they meet their demise.

This year with all the snow we have, the coyote hunters on snowmobiles have been really getting lots- which is good because they were getting to be quite a problem.

After about three or four weeks he started chasing my calves around the pasture and the day he chased them through a gate is the day I took him to the sale barn. This was on a Saturday afternoon. The man ask for his papers, to which I replied, I was new at this and didn't know what he meant. He said Coggins Papers and I would have to get them from a vet. The nearest vet that could do it was about 40 miles away so I took off! When the vet finished I paid him his $50.00 for the test and drove back to the sale barn. It was late in the sale and the guy at the sale barn said all the horse and donkey buyers had left. I had to keep him at the barn until the following Tuesday's sale. Tuesday came and I sold my donkey. He brought me $45.00, before commission, ins., feed, and etc. came out of it. I brought home under $40.00 for what was now a $125.00 + $50.00 donkey. That was my first and last experience with a donkey! Now I just use a .22 to keep the coyotes away.
