    civilization has always been hostile to nature. it's how we got where we are and why Kelly could easily be right.

    pretty annoying news story, though with the always on hand slant that automatically assumes human dominion. that kind of thinking gets us all killed. humans barely have dominion over their own actions...

    I have coyotes in my Woods behind the house. They don’t bother me and I don’t bother them.

    Was a fellow in the hood that was using claw traps to snare coyotes. He'd then go out and club them to death. He was reported him to the city. They didn't do squat. So he was reported to the state fish and wildlife folks.
    They prosecuted him. The claw traps made the act a felony. He had to sell his house when he went on a state funded vacation.

    We were glad to be rid of him.

    The coyotes and deer and rabbits and squirrels all seem happier too.

    One good thing about prison is there is always someone meaner and deadlier. :thumb:

    If we could make rats palatable to coyotes, they could meet a need...maybe train urban raptors to hunt rodents as well.

    You folks understand coyotes are dangerous, they pack up and they will attack people if they are small or weak looking.
    Any hoo there's been an explosion of them in my area due to less human traffic, peoples cats and small dogs are disappearing, at a local large park I had one walk past me 10 feet away, that's a little too comfy for my taste.

    "We designed an experiment that calls for the capture, GPS collaring and release of 20 coyotes east of the 110 Freeway in Los Angeles."

    :eek::eek:

    What are you doing in the barrio in the middle of the night, homie?
    Oh don't mind us, we're just hazing coyotes.

    I did a double take on reading that as for most Angelinos east of the 110 = BAD neighborhood, until I saw the map and they're doing this in toney La Habra Heights. I guess that qualifies for "east of the 110"...so does Arizona.

    In my hood, hearing coyotes sing at night is normal. I find it pleasant. Much more so than the yappy little sh!t up the street. Occasionally we see them walking through our yards and on our streets. But mostly they're only roaming at night. They live here. It's their home. If we don't want our pets to become lunch, we don't let our pets outside unattended. Including the yappy little sh!t up the street.

    I think most of us, but clearly not all, understand that coyotes are a part of our ecosystem and were "here" long before we arrived. We either learn to live within the system or the system will spit us out.
