^^^^^^This. The coyote you remove will be replaced sooner rather than later by another. The habitat is prime. Coyotes are extremely territorial. Little dogs and cats in the area are not necessarily the target of the coyote as a meal but viewed as competition. They will kill their competition to protect their territory. They rarely ever actually eat a cat or small dog unless they are really hungry. Ohio State University did some very interesting research on coyotes if anyone wants to investigate.
