Loading a Coyote into a Dog Box [VIDEO]

Would you consider loading a live coyote into a dog box?

Trappers have had to relocate problem coyotes for as long as coyotes and trappers have existed.

 When most coyotes are relocated, there are many safety concerns to deal with. Coyotes are not known for their friendly behavior, and many people are scared to death of the canines.

Now, a coyote is not going to attack a human unless something is terribly wrong with the animal. Coyotes are just as scared, if not more so, than what we are of them.

I have dealt with a lot of coyotes as a trapper. Some have been very aggressive toward me, and others were not.

This trapper has to relocate a problem coyote. Normally a catch pole would be used, but not this time. The coyote was picked up with gloved hands, and placed in the dog box.

I think this guy has done this a few times.

Coyote Steps in Foothold Trap [VIDEO]

Trappers rarely get to see a coyote work a set.

Coyote trappers love to find coyotes in their traps. What they do not get to see very often is how a coyote works a trap and gets caught. By watching a coyote work a set, trappers can get a better understanding about trap placement and coyote behavior.

Watch this video as a coyote works a set, and steps in the middle of a Victor #3 4-coiled foothold trap at a dirt hole set.
