[RC] coyote threat - L gin

Here in Ga. I know of a mini horse left alone in a pasture at night and coyotes attacked it and permantly injured her back legs (daughter adopted it).
Recently there was a report on the news of a coyote going after a small child at dusk while playing outside, it was biting his neck and trying to drag him...siblings were screaming and the mom came out on the porch.
There was a coyote(rabid) who attacked a jogger on a joggin path in Atlanta suburbs, guy wresteled it down and held onto it , till 911 came-- had rabies.
All my farmer neighbors carry shotguns on their tractors , they said when working out in the fields , sometimes they come across them attacking calves or they are alone on foot. (nightly here, there are packs , sounds like 50 of 'um howiling in the pasture to the ones the next mtn. over. You can even hear the pups.
My dogs have a 4 ft. fence with hotwire around it to protect them. I have a donkey, hopefully to help protect the horses, but they are om 4 strand hot fence, but sometimes I see tracks, dog or whatever in the mud, a few places they can get under....
They might go after a lone horse in a pack if hungry enough.....?/ I won't say never......
