What can one do to prevent coyotes from coming into a community killing small animals?

I'm sorry to hear that coyotes killed your cat. The best way to keep small pets safe from coyotes is to keep them indoors, particularly at night. Fencing can also be effective at keeping coyotes away. You can learn more about coyotes at: There is a good video under the Behavior section of that webpage.
