Do coyotes jump over fences to attack dogs?

Simple answer - YES!  HERE IS HOW.......

Research has shown that they can scale up to 14 feet and that it's at the 6 foot mark where they need use leverage to get over. 

14 feet!! 

Fences or walls lower than 6 feet risk the Coyote jumping over it without ever touching the top. This why we recommend at least a 6ft fence to install your Coyote Rollers

The "jump" consists of two phases. First, the Coyote jumps to grab hold of the top of the fence with its front paws.

It then adds to it vertical momentum by pulling on the top of the fence, this allows him to gain extra height.

At the same time he brings his back paws up to the top of the fence. Now, all four of his paw are in contact with the top of the fence .

This takes less than 1/2 a second!

The coyote then uses his back legs to spring off the fence, as he extends his front paws in preparation for landing.  

The Coyote Roller interferes with the jump by making it impossible for the animal to grab the top of the fence. Learn More about Coyote Rollers.

Coyotes can grab and carry an animal that weighs up to 25lbs over a 6ft fence.

They are able to dig under a fence but they take prey that is the fastest, easiest to secure. 

I have heard from people that have had Coyotes attack not only small dogs, but also larger dogs!

A loose dog (or cat), no matter their size, is at risk for getting killed by Coyotes.

They will attempt to engage a loose dog in a friendly, to get the dog to follow them towards awaiting pack members. This is why small pets are at risk inside your yard, and loose dogs of any size are in danger when off your property.

How do you reduce this danger?

When you have Coyote Rollers installed,
THIS DANGER IS REDUCED!
