Coyote Precautions for Worried Pet Owners

by The Louisiana SPCA on Friday, July 8, 2011 at 1:04pm



Due to the recent encounters with coyotes throughout the City, the LA/SPCA encourages pet owners to take precautions and stresses the importance of the leash law. Some safety measures to keep in mind include:

  • Bring all pets indoors, even if they predominantly live outdoors.
  • Supervise outside time for pets. Coyotes can harm animals if they are unattended.
  • When walking the dog, carry an air horn or walking stick as deterrent for a coyote.
  • Always use a leash on the dog and keep them close at all times.
  • Put all trash in a heavy bag inside of a trash can, and securely close the lid. This will limit food sources for the coyote.
  • Close off small spaces under porches, decks, or sheds, and keep the property well lit to scare away any potential danger.

Coyotes live in close proximity to humans, and linger in vacant lots, levees, river banks or parks. They tend to travel alone or in pairs, and mostly during daylight hours. They eat insects, rodents, and small mammals, but also fruit, vegetable remains and trash. When coyotes travel in larger packs, however, they hunt larger prey.

The LA/SPCA urges all residents to follow the leash law. Under the Code of Ordinances for New Orleans, the leash law states that dogs must be vaccinated and kept on a leash while they are not on their own property. This is not only for the dog’s safety, but for the safety of neighbors, children, and other animals.

The LA/SPCA is directing coyote complaints to private wildlife trapping professionals. For cruelty complaints please do not hesitate to contact LA/SPCA Animal Control at 504-368-5191 ext. 100.

Keeping a watchful eye...

Transport(s)

Just finalizing a transport we have scheduled for Sunday. The family is moving from Guam back to the US. We love doing transports!

You know what amazes me... they (our transport clients) figure out a way to keep the family pets. I am amazed by the number of emails I get on a daily basis that are "family is moving to Kenner, (where ever) - can't take pets". If you want them and loved them you to would figure out a way... it is not that difficult!

Justsayin!

Superdome Poodle - Rescued by ARNO

Animal Rescue New Orleans (ARNO) is doing great work. Are you looking for a poodle? They rescued one from the Superdome!

Superdome Poodle
Post One:
UPDATE: POODLE IN SUPERDOME

No details on sex, etc. yet but just got the call, WE GOT THE POODLE! Michelle reports that finally the poodle is in our trap and sweet as pie! When I talked to Superdome parking today was told she/he has been there quite awhile so they were rooting for us to be successful.
Will keep you posted when Michelle comes up with a name (rescuer names the dog at ARNO)

Post Two:
Well we think he isn't a poodle after all or a mix maybe but little Samson as he has been named by his rescuer has had his first bath in a long time. We will post some before shots as soon as we get them from Michelle but his bathwater was very very gray, we weren't sure we were dealing with a white dog until he was ...dry! We had to cut what looked like clumps of tar off of him and no doubt the exhaust fumes of a huge parking facility, as well as oil and grease are what made him appear to be a gray dog! He is super sweet, had a collar, no tags, no microchip but walks well on leash, jumps and plays and barks when you go away. We will do our best to find his owner but we will give him lots and lots of love while he is on legal hold for owner and then will be available to adopt.

Post Three:
Sampson - stray at New Orleans Saints Superdome. He had been there for about a month now. I guess he wanted to really be a Who Dat dog. Thanks to Lise and Ginnie at ARNO, we were able to get this baby out and into safe hands. He is a sweet and lovable baby!

Give it to me, give it to me, give it to me!

You woke me for this?

Starting to get it...

The nice man is here to walk me... Thank goodness Mom broke me out of that high kill shelter - this is the life!

Henri & Isabelle get one cup of Watermelon a day in the summer... (I minus 1/2 cup of food from PM feeding). They absolutely love it and totally know the word "watermelon"!

Sending love to Mommy... Enjoy Istanbul!







My solution...

My babies are killing my floor... they get more water around the bowl that you can imagine. So, I got a big serving tray and put a smaller bowl inside and it works! I do not have to wipe up water anymore and my wood floors may last a little longer.



I can do it...

My office mates are motivating...

10-pound Chihuahua is snatched by coyote in City Park

Susana Palma had taken her dogs -- a 70-pound poodle and a 10-pound Chihuahua -- to City Park on Friday for their daily late-afternoon stroll.

She parked on Filmore Avenue, near the driving range, and opened the car door to let the dogs roam, without leashes. Story



Oh and by the way... dogs should be on a leash!

Email from Mid-City Neighborhood Association

We have just received information regarding a pack of dangerous wild dogs in the Mid-City area, most recently in the 100 block of S. Scott St. The incident occurred on Monday, July4th between 2:00 and 2:30 a.m. when a neighbor was awakened by a disturbance in their back yard and observed 3 dogs, one being a dark colored, huge rottweiler, the second a light colored German Shepherd mix and the third being a mutt attacking a neighborhood cat. The cat did not survive the attack.

The Mid City Security District and SPCA have been notified, and Officer Frank has confirmed that this is the second report of a cat being killed by a group of dogs that match the same description in the last 2 weeks in the same general vicinity.

Please be on alert and report any similar observations to the Mid-City Security District

Wild dog pack in Mid-City

POSTED BY KEVIN ALLMAN ON TUE, JUL 5, 2011 AT 3:55 PM

So I'm out on my balcony Sunday night/Monday morning about midnight when I see three dogs (two huge, one semi-huge) running down the street. One of them went down the middle of the street zigzagging like Reggie Bush, while the second one took a straight line down the sidewalk. The smaller dog brought up the rear. They were as brisk and silent as a school of fish; at the corner, they simultaneously made a right and disappeared from sight. I thought about calling the police, but the dogs were moving so fast that there wouldn't have been much to report.

Seems like they're still in the neighborhood, according to this email today from the Mid-City Neighborhood Organization:

We have just received information regarding a pack of dangerous wild dogs in the Mid-City area, most recently in the 100 block of S. Scott St. The incident occurred on Monday, July 4th between 2:00 and 2:30 a.m. when a neighbor was awakened by a disturbance in their back yard and observed 3 dogs, one being a dark colored, huge rottweiler, the second a light colored German Shepherd mix and the third being a mutt attacking a neighborhood cat. The cat did not survive the attack.

The Mid City Security District and SPCA have been notified, and Officer Frank has confirmed that this is the second report of a cat being killed by a group of dogs that match the same description in the last 2 weeks in the same general vicinity.

And a posting on a Mid-City listserv says someone has put up a sign on Cleveland Avenue warning about the dog pack. So it sounds like the pack wasn't just passing through, but has made Mid-City its territory.

Anyone else seen these dogs?

And if you haven't, keep an eye out if you're outdoors in Mid-City at night ... and keep your small pets indoors.

I just ordered these
