I posted earlier about the critter that I now believe to be an orphaned coyote that was wandering my neighborhood last summer. We had a ton of rabbits last spring and no daffodils or tulips. This year we have beautiful tulips and daffodils blooming, they all popped after the eight inches of rain followed by two days of 70 degrees. Given the choice, I guess I'd go with the circle of life, and let the coyote do it's thing. If I had feral cats around, I would buy some coyotes and transplant them.
