A little while ago, I read the article about coyotes in our midst. I have ambiguous feelings towards the measures recommended to discourage coyotes: fruit tree and fruit removal, bird feeder removal etc. We know coyotes will always be there, as we know they adapt. So, if they can survive near us, why not? We just have to be aware and be careful. Their lives are never easy, as we continue to destroy their habitat and food sources and even trap them for their fur and poison them.
