Hi, I'm a newbie out here. A few days ago, a roaming coyote killed one of our pet cats, and apparently has been killing cats and dogs throughout the neighborhood lately. We live right on the Columbia river, a semi-rural area where there are lots of places for a coyote to hide. My question - if this animal comes on my property again (we have about a 1-acre lot) am I allowed to shoot it? I found RCW 77.36.030 that says I am, but don't know what local restrictions there might be on using e.g. a hunting rifle or other firearm here for this purpose. Thanks in advance.
