talk to the game warden in your area. i am sure other people are having the same problem in your area. maybe get several people together having the same problem and then talking to the game warden and see what solution they can come up with. in the mean time keep your animals penned up or inside.

Just invest in some raw chicken and some antifreeze. Problem solved.

You would kill a wide range of wildlife with poison. Not just the target animal. Also poisoning wildlife is illegal and cruel.

I agree. Poison can kill a lot more critters than the coyotes. Including your own cats that may be outside. Don't do it.

Set traps on your property (the very edge of it), lots and lots of them. Be sure to secure your traps from theivery. Box traps would be the most "humane" and probably the least effective after the first one. Box traps do give you the option of releasing the critter caught, whereas some of the "snares" or wire nooses are less forgiving of curious kitties. Also, i would bet the law against shooting has an exception for defending yourself or your pets/livestock against aggressive wildlife. Read the rule and find the usable exceptions. I'm wondering about archery, even archery practice. I bet coyote skulls would make some very attractive cat bowls.

Motion-activated lighting might useful after you thin them out.

Keep the kitties inside and the coyotes in the ground where they will all get along.

Get a crossbow. Quiet and deadly. Shoots like a rifle.

^^^^^^this! If the landowner gets encouraged by the game warden, and if multiple households are having a concern vs one guy, there is a much better chance of getting somewhere.

Now, i was raised Southern Baptist and absolutely despise a frivolous lawsuit, but seeing as how your cats are your property and they are being damaged by pests harbored by your neighbor, perhaps you should have another conversation with the neighbor. If rats from his barn were eating your seed corn at an alarming rate, wouldn't he be in the wrong and on the hook for damages?

Few things can do more damage and be more motivating than a drooling attorney. (It's like a nuke; try everything else first.)

I'd say it's time to invest in a 6 foot fence or move back to the city, remember you moved into their area.
