Yes even larger dogs. One coyote will lure a dog away from the buildings and then the pack will surround the dog. Been there, farmguy

The town folk are having heck with the coyotes and bobcats making meals out of their dogs and cats. There's so many that animal control can't keep up and when they do trap them they just relocate.

I wonder if the coyotes are having the mirror image of this discussion...... You gotta watch em. They'll send a dog in to lure you away, and then they'll shoot you in the face!

A coyote can smell a crazy cat lady from 50 miles away. We had the classic country cabin that was home to an old widow and a few dozen cats perched on her porch. They were killing everyone's chickens.

Now she has a little dog she watches like a hawk. Haven't seen a cat at her place in 10 years.

So, are these still good coyotes as long as they leave the new calves and goats alone?

Been a few years ago now, but the barn cat, ventured down to the patio. I was finishing a bowl of vanilla ice cream, and flicked him a spoon full. Went in and sat down. Stupid cat stays at the patio door meowing for a while, and I ignore him. See the thing clawing at my door, so I get up to run him off. As I approach the door, I see a coyote has belly crawled to the patio, and is about to get the cat.

So Ky cats can play basketball but they can't climb a tree?

It is well known in this area that domestic cats are one of coyotes preferred meals. I saw a video of a retirement trailer park, somewhere in Florida, where they had video taped coyotes grabbing some of the small pet dogs and carrying them off. Residents were warned to be careful as they had gotten so bold that one grabbed a little dog on a leash and the owner was beating it off with a cane....Said it had become a real problem and people were warned not to walk their dogs after dusk.... and to be careful that they didn't get themselves in a compromised situation as the coyotes had no fear of humans....
