When a CAS runs down a coyote it is not a strait race the dog can figure out the zig and zag and on occasion the wrong Zig gets a Coyote nailed by the CAS fmale on the zag. That is because we have fencing , more than one dog working, and woods. Coyotes attack barns not in open fields since the ranchers normally pen up livestock at nite and they come in for it. |
So they get killed when caught in a area they can get speed for.
Male CAs have short quick bursts of speed and run out of stream qick and than do a heavy trot, females can just keep going 80 pound b###h can turn on dime, jump 6 ft in air to catch birds , and have JUMPED over a coyote when the chase is on and the coyote gets stopped by another dog
and she cant get the brakes on, and YES that coyote gets away it outsmarted the dog knowing she was inches away from eating him in full speed. teh dead stop screwed up the chase long enough for the dog to lose ground.
The SHounds would of been able to stop long enough to catch.
Coyotes here are 70 plus pounds a female CAS can not kill in ONE bite a 150 male can.
Thus the battle last a bit longer and the FUR is eaten by the coyote penned by the neck down as the dog fighhts him , the coyote is grabbing FUR and LOOSE LOOOSE skin. he never gets to the back for the tail and normally is UNDER the dog so the ears dont take much on small coyote.
But the Coyotes NAILS are dug into BOTTOm of dog in battle thus a dog with FUR and loose skin
have a advantage
CAs lose TUFFS of fur that the coyote bit or scratched off.
Also a mother stays with her cubs for a long time they will come in together and as the dog GRIPPS one coyote the other one can grip NO tail, no ears, and loose FURRY skin,'
The deserts of the kara kum hit 120 during the day. If the nomads wanted a NO fur breed assuming they were only need fur to keep them warm. They would of used the Italian War dogs the Italians brougth with them.
Fur and loose skin is armor for dogs, it also works as a insulator for heat and INFECTion.
When a wound does occur it helps that the skin is ripped NOT muscle or viens as well as the fur can keep off bugs flies that can cause 2dnary skin infection.
My sheep bang into every ting they can fence walls . When they do it SHEERED in summer I have to get VET here. And I have to wash it and use anotibotics all the time.
When they do it in winter in FULL coat, I use blue kote spary NO Vet,'NO daily nothing it heals quick buried under FUR. FELTED FUR.
We find this out how? When we sheer them and find OLD wounds cleared up the dead skin cells and BLOOD is on the old felt we are sheering off.
And yes every few years we get the ridge coyotes coming in for lambs
Record here is above 80 pounds by hunter.
