I didnt say I do or live in a subdivision, you assume alot brother. Several years back, I lived with my parents while I was in escrow for my home and they are in the country. If a rattler was on the property, it would get popped. If I saw one one a public road relaxing in the sun, I left him alone. On the fire line, they get the shovel for sure.
We are the invasive species. The coyotes and other wild animals were here first. We have encroached on their land. Coyotes wouldn't be coming into our neighborhoods if we all properly disposed of our waste and kept our animals contained. The kids are in danger? Not if they are being watched by their parents. I see no reason to shoot these animals for no other reason except for sport.
It's legal to kill them so do as you wish, morally I do think it's wrong.
I play Durango every week and just this last week we remarked that the rabbits were showing up again. I got a great picture of two Hawks sitting in a tree in 18 last week. They used to nest over by the par3 by the office buildings.
We saw the family of yours pop out of the brush on 17 all through December
