Coyotes seem to be very opportunistic. They will kill what ever is available, the easier the better. I had one come into my yard and try to kill my 20 pound dog, my screaming and hollering freaked him out enough that he dropped the little guy. Mostly small and young or old and frail are at risk. I have had livestock guardian dogs for the past 15 years, first Anatolian Shepherds and now Maremmas and have not lost a kid, or lamb or chicken to a coyote since they have been on duty. The neighbor to my left lost several calves last year and they aren't sure if it was coyotes or mountain lions but my critters have been safe from harm.
