Coyotes & Bobcats
Coyotes and Bobcats are some of the larger predators that sometimes become a nuisance in Southwest Colorado.
Coyotes look similar to a domestic dog, are larger than foxes and smaller than wolves. Bobcats resemble a large house cat, averaging about 19 lbs. Both are typically very shy creatures when it comes to humans, but this won’t keep them out of your chicken coop.
While attacks from these predators are rare, they can be dangerous to humans if they are sick or have rabies. They can also prey upon some livestock and household pets. This is especially common on farmland in the Four Corners region.

Colorado Bobcats & Coyotes – How do you get rid of them?
There are different methods you can use when dealing with bobcats and coyotes. You should never approach these animals without the proper training and safety equipment, however.
You may be able to keep coyotes and bobcats off your property by managing small mammal populations, such as rodents or rabbits. Closing off crawl spaces around your home and installing an electric fence may help as well. Sometimes more preventative measures need to take place, though, as coyotes are known to dig underneath normal fences.
If you are dealing with aggressive or persistent wildlife around your home, it is best to call a seasoned wildlife professional. San Juan Wildlife has the knowledge and tools to help you with any critter control issue you may be dealing with. Contact us today for a quote or immediate assistance.
