Our research indicates that a coyote can go over a 6-foot high
fence and be in your yard in just over one second! Consequently, it may appear
as though the coyote jumped completely over the fence, without touching it. In
fact, the "jump" consists of two phases. First, the coyote jumps to
grab hold of the top of the fence with its front paws. The coyote then adds to
its vertical momentum by pulling on the top of the fence. This allows him to
gain additional height. At the same time, he brings his back paws up to the top
of the fence, so that momentary, all four of his paws are in contact with the
top of the fence. All of this takes less than half a second! Next, the coyote
then uses his back legs to spring off the fence, while he extends his front
paws in preparation for landing. The Coyote Roller interferes with the first
part of the jump by making it virtually impossible for the animal to grab the
top of the fence. Denied traction, the coyote loses its footing. And combined
with the forward momentum, ends up banging into the fence and falling down.
The Coyote Roller system is designed as a homeowner-installed
system. However, if you do not feel comfortable drilling, cutting, and
modifying rollers to work on your fence, we recommend a contractor. We
highly recommend that defective fences be repaired or replaced before
installing the Coyote Roller system. We also recommend having a fencing
contractor install coyote rollers on block walls due to the possibility of
The Coyote Roller system is comparably priced, but offers an
aesthetically pleasing solution that won't make your yard look like a prison
compound. Also, the Coyote Roller is humane, and are perfectly legal in all 50
states. Currently, electrical fencing and barbed wire may not be an
option in many residential areas.

Research indicates that the population density of coyotes can be
ten times greater than normal near urban developments, due to the
"oasis" effect. This is particularly apparent throughout the
southwest where "well-watered" developments exist within areas of
relatively low precipitation. The natural environment contrasts sharply with
the highly landscaped developments, which support lush vegetation and abundant
animal life. As a result, coyotes and other animals are drawn to these
developments, and their populations rapidly increase in response to the
abundance of food and water. Property invasion and pet attacks are an
inevitable consequence of the urbanization of America.
