Coyotes on the Rise


Last night, on the way “over the hill” and back, I saw 5 coyotes and 2 foxes. This guy was by side of road at about 7 this morning. It let me get within 15 feet. Not good. I believe clueless people are feeding them. Bad idea. Makes them beggars instead of hunters. Also a death sentence for some, as they get hit by cars. “A fed coyote is a dead coyote.”

As the Miwok knew, they are special.

    Us govt killed 68,000 coyotes in2018, sheep ranchers are ecstatic. Me, not so much.

    The natural predator of coyotes is wolves.
    We have killed nearly all the wolves.
    And now we are surprised that coyotes are flourishing.
