I have a cousin in chatsworth who's 8week old lab pup was killed and partially eaten by a coyote. The property is surrounded by undeveloped areas with a lot of cover. Apparently a lot of coyotes have been spotted in this area. I was wondering about the legality of killin some of these critters. Maybe using a crossbow or some other silent methods(.22 pellet gun?) cause its in a sort of a "neighborhood" area. What do you guys think?
