    I know if they were my goats, I’d be finding a coyote hunter with dogs and take care of the problem.

    Pretty weird…..Fish and Wildlife thinks coyotes, but don’t they leave tracks? Don’t they stop to eat? I guess I don’t know enough about our next soon-to-be protected species (and I don’t mean goats).

    Chupacabra, maybe goataphobic Republicans, but my money is on little green coyotes from Mars !
