It happened again.
At 1:30am a pack of coyotes were yipping so loudly they woke me and surely no one else could sleep through it. This has happened before a couple times a year.
It's normally very quiet here at night.
I went to Hoggie's cat door which is about chest height.
I pushed the hard plastic flap outward and yelled HEY! Very short like the crack of a rifle in the silence. Now, I have a loud speaking voice anyway, but, when I PROJECT, it's quite EXCEPTIONAL.
I let out the HEY! to startle them, and then I listened.
Their yipping had dropped to about 30% .
I then slammed that cat door to make them think I was coming out.
THEY COMPLETELY SHUT UP.
So, what have you learned?
Coyotes are cowards when confronted by the voice of Hoggie's Papa?
Well, Smoking Is A Coward Too
It Cannot Stand Up To You
Cigarettes Travel In Packs
Just Stop It!
I'm going back to bed now.
