Bullet idea on what they're gone what then and it won't take the at bat out of mail in. And if you got a pack of wolves. Right. Only two of them are gonna breed exactly. But don't Ambien delegate here might don't. From the wolves they're kind of dog so it doesn't the female. You know in do you have that they have the right time and then I'd the other dogs would ignore that the male dogs would ignore that.

Give these sixty found that really warm up recently. Dread but to point out container. Good. Yeah luckily that's happening but that. Yet but I like twenty yards. Out of my back yard. But it would equipment today you know I've seen dog around the economic activity. And averages you know so that if people keep that two audience and don't have their garbage accessible coyote that needs food. And has yet so he you know keep you are reporting should the public people keep more on. I thank you Mike and lady call Rhonda. In correct ninety bed running threatening our company you next everybody else had 260. 187 a lot of people apparently having coyotes appearances on the area and seen one. Maybe in the zoo adamantly Tony to temper that and crap. I does it takes about coyotes we've seen coyotes in their neighborhood two blocks off a river road last week no one came in attacked a litter of kittens very frightening. And ended violently Tom element tanner have an animal trap in my backyard three to four Parsons are trapped in a tramp. Each spring during mating season the city of Kennard I was in my on the pick up upon some. And drop some off of the spill way we have seen an occasional coyote to. But Parsons are the worst you may they'd heard the phone go off in the background a kid who by the way graduated from. High school and she's a Texan and she is gonna come back editing human here anymore text on the air but apparently I was wrong. Consummate picture she stayed overnight at a friend's house. And the friend's father. Trapped raccoon. To government looks like in. They're take him over to the zoo. But I don't know if the zoo was going to be happy when these these two girls chill up with raccoon I don't know if that's what you're supposed to do. Or not what happens to them from that point Rhonda Gretna and good morning and talk about coyotes with me. Yet coming on the tingling golf course we have coyotes and it's quite a controversy. Ears to what to do them in. Oh wait Rondo where would be controversy coming possessed nine GAAP net. The controversy and really. I'd I'd venture researcher when it came out because at first it was by ball and shoot him and got it right. Felt a great article by you Easter. The humane society get wonderful article explaining why it at work. And created called it they're not like a world that we actually got the opposite. All the groups they may and they. You know they can't. Well what happened with that eagle I need cal one and put these female Indy. They have. More later he is like killing her and when her hand on his bike killing one it doesn't. You kill part of the group vague they are automatically go into. Odd lenient on a set of the day into reproduction and reproductive minding lag Edmonton. They reprint ultimately. And it reproductive mode and then may have already earlier they letters that are bigger. And you actually can increase the population. Away in a match trying to be silly here how does a female population know that. That coyotes being killed or one of them how to they know leader and his golf for a pack of cigarettes some. Well one get prepared they note that somebody's gun is that what happened you know mother nature it was prisoner here I don't know it's better for meals. It. So it may be less about that Rondo started a doctor yesterday of very educated man and I asked him do you think you're Smart a that I AM. Andy cause recited says I know why am. And when you responded just now it respond if it reminded me of that it's like you know what a dumb question I don't know why you're asking me. Miso so if a male or female as far as you know is killed the same thing happens. Yeah I mean and it's 00 articles out electricity means that article one. I'm you need to worry because I Saunders. Is coming in Crawford. You know they're out doing it it will then of course common knowledge. In which it's incorrect. To use the coyote during the day because nocturnal animals. Rabbit ears and your wallet. Out during the day because they like these squirrel squirrel around there. In the decade in the greater. And there are not you know basically the controversy comes in you try to trap them and then it. And you can see my picture taken. The idea that we have a right here once trapped until you know. I opinion that he killed in part to you know you. Try to relocate them help themselves. Now complete odd miles back to their territory because territory currently populations have actually. So your testimony of Rhonda from Redmond is that they're suicidal as well. I. Management caught in the states like he went from here and you solid down the practice which is one of the ideas out there. An important that. Thank you bring in the held chains we appreciate that Rhonda that's wonderful you know I know there's not like at this rate neighbor. You know bring in the LJ's and hope they can't get through the tunnel or cross the bridge thank you Rhonda. Now. So it is sad that he said bring in the plaque humans. I. Love him bring bring you bring a idol. A suicidal coyote to play arguments there. And let him kill them that. You're delightful moment that re divorced me. Now again McCain and that it. Happened. And basically it yet again that bill. That we it and repeating. All articles on. Your eating. Cap on what to do to keep the prudently and get in and out I shouldn't eat out pants and shoot. Now I'll pick up for kept that from. The UK and we trap neuter return. Mr. Alton. I think the great advocate in particular that population. And keep the other one. Out the population are eventually going to go. Run that we got to run in his template you cultured delightfully you know because that. Think hey I Jordan and Shelvin make note any Erekat sent them to Gretna. 830 to ten and it of you offers news that we deeply on your knees Soares who Allen's always have fascinating stories. On the web and in the news and and seen this here could FaceBook in due in divorce court me ya what can't. Yeah yeah. Let me something that'll keep you out damning attacks from people saying you sound better problem blah bitter Kharrazi on it's just a joke. So rob and Taylor I'm bitter and angry about his Rhonda Singh in bringing Iraq. Bring Iraq crude supply humans parish and probably don't need any raccoon and plaque humans and I'm so confused about everything she said because she yeah and and they're loners now. But yet if there is a Packers and Aaron I don't know and and if one leaves. Then the others get suicidal which just. Does is like site coyote psychology I guess they cannot and now and then they say if if you take one away. Well when they breed but then they're saying if you take one away it becomes suicidal. Seared in me is. Jay Leno till this joke years and years ago in Las Vegas that'll get mad at me but he said you know he saw a news report answer. He. Look out through B bolo be on the lookout for some and its armed and suicide only symbolism brown but it will take care of itself. Leno's joke not mine 84218. Before nine coming back with Robin beau Leo who is going to settle straight. And all of this coyote taught. You know trying to have a serious conversation Blake in some money text and what about the road. This is a serious problem for people we don't need. Cartoon antics like that. We appreciate him though we don't need them back in a clash of it. 8481249. Coyotes a problem in the area there is so much misinformation out there the one thing I can tell you is do not. Even considered dumping your coyotes and plaque commends perished. I'm sure we have more than we need right now another tanks comes in acne has a coyote trapping machine. Where evidence serious conversation here with Robin. Beau Leo Jefferson Parish animal shelter director good morning Robin. I am well thank you I say on TV last night and I am so confused because. If you can't kill your way out of the problem. I am I don't know how you and this explain to me to take us through coyote 101 if you could. Well and and first let me just mention he got my name I heard you talking about it in Imus and friends actually speak. Right it's one of the French names and yet on top of it you know. I always say just remember a polio but with a deep it like I'm right now opening you to write the floor right at the last which is bad. Well lived drama life and never denied a say that name but I do now. I can't look thank you so on yet coming in these you know just like alt lives a law applies. They should be treated with respect and and they aren't it is fear isn't it very serious matter. Urban. Cities and urban areas all over the country are dealing with coyotes there coyotes in Central Park in New York. So coyotes were here first like a lot of a lot life they're going to be here we don't want unnecessarily eradicate. All the wildlife around the fact is that coyotes are treated they were very. Scared of humans. You have to learn how to live and coexist with them. I don't I don't wanna run out of time here rob Bartlett again I done. And asked are you said don't Killen because it makes it worse does trapping make it worse and why does it make it worse. If you can eradicate. The they'll pull them. I didn't run in packs there are several of them that belong to the pac. If you take at alpha male what's gonna happen and the alpha female is that gonna go into a stress. And she is going to be mating with all of the beta males you'll have a population explosion. How would she know like danced earlier you were listening how old she know. If he's to energy society goes somewhere else. It doesn't matter at the minute he's not around in the whole pact becomes unstable. It's it's an innate knowledge. Without they're not there to maintain control. And this is what happens. So arm couldn't go ahead and sent. It's been studied for years and years and years added immensely famous out of Denver Colorado the biologists that study did what they found is. By trapping and being certain ones out of the population you actually lead to a population explosion now if you know where that then it. And you can actually get a whole act. Then it becomes an option but if you don't have that knowledge. And you do not eradicate 80% of that pack you're actually making the problem. So how do you do that Robin do you find the holes Dan means it's on them like. And I try to be indelicate GPS so like out there like apparently in numbers in new home Norman and well Archie. I mean they were at they're so high Eddie eaten nutria that's something a lot of people don't realize that they do have a place and time arm and if you you know we're not piety Connors diners say yes. That. Well they are originally and part of recently sworn in to be nutri honors either but. Note it line by today that was an important sermons so what you have to remember is number one now it has to be balanced. Two if you can get a whole pack and I can't believe that you know the king of Harry hand may have been able to do that but. You cannot and Jake yet so officers. Shooting animals in in neighbor that's not a safe thing to do. If the pack is located away and you're able to gain that knowledge. Then you can if you're able to eradicate all packed and then it certainly can be a solution. Get a couple of more minutes. It take a look at Traficant in this subject fascinates me because I didn't know this much about coyotes I've never seen one. Other early Tommy there an element like humans narration. I guess the other thing is of the conditions are favorable. For the end to be there in the first place Heidi you know another. Packet coyotes and a moving your right equities started Robin goalie as a yes some interesting information. About coyotes a very serious subject because they're showing up more and more nineties here but around the country. Robin bully on anxious to get back and talk to our time is limited Jefferson Parish animal shelter director. Drama coyotes so Robin what do what do you do I mean if that your person you get these things in your neighborhood buddies and those that do. The best weapon is educating the public about what to do and each community has to look at their resources and their situation and decide what's the right way to go. The death. App live passing communities the piety. I get a share acknowledge it. Keep your in the yes see he's playing hadn't. Potentially aggravate you stand collier aggressive to them you yeah US so you make a lot of noise. You go at them he never run away from a coyote you always. Act as geographic you need. Bring the message back to the pact. They bring the message back to the pack if they run from you know block and they stop and look at him you gotta keep going until that out of your neighborhood. Also small small animal. Cap stocks don't leave your small animals unattended outside in the yard societies can jump senses very very easily. They are predators there's a reason they work out wily coyote they're very very Smart. Before we run out of time Robin you cannot coyote ever be suicidal. Mean that we not seen that there's no message of and it it endanger. We want you to contact as if it's confined acting in a threatening manner we want should contact. I thank you Robin will give that information when we come back.
