For years at my house my dad has had problems with getting the Javalina (Wild Hairy pigs for you non desert rats) to stay out of our property, but generally banging on our metal shed has scared them off (Except the time they got in the rose bed *lol*). Recently though, our eighty-something year old neighbor (No exaggeration) has gotten a dog because she was told having a reason to walk would get her walking more and be healthier... though the one coyote in our area became four recently and Javalina's have been harder to get away. Just tonight My father and I helped her keep her dog from attempting to take on 7 Javalinas that had gotten into her yard... he's a really short dog that couldn't take on one *lol*. She was smart enough to get the dog away and bang on her metal door, but the dumb pigs aren't as scared at the sounds as they used to be.
So back to my point, any ideas what we could do better to keep the Javalinas (And Coyotes for that matter) away from our area? (Besides the obvious Coyote's want to eat dog meat, and our neighbor is going to be fixing the gates to not let the dog get out of the yard, and she promises to try harder to keep the gates closed --- Getting rid of the dog would probably fix the problem, though that's not really an answer)
Lol sorry it's so long.
