Here's how coyotes travel in my neighborhood.   The ugly  cement block fences are very common, the coyotes easily jump up on them which allows easy access to multiple back yards.

Wow. Who would have guessed they'd turn the cement fences into a coyote freeway. Dangerous for backyard pets.

I guess ya gotta do what you have to do if you are a coyote....I don't blame them one bit. Every creature needs food.

There was a news story the other day, on KTLA channel 5, which had a woman walking her medium sized dog for an evening walk.  A pack of coyotes came towards her growling. Which, as far as I know is pretty unusual. I am guessing they were hungry.


She ran screaming with her dog. Luckily, a random neighbor heard her screaming, opened her door and allowed her and the dog to run in. It was all caught on the neighbors security camera.

Wildlife using man-made structures to get around. Like squirrels on power lines.

We have had a family of them down at the very end of our property for a few years, they howl at sundown and my blood runs cold. My neighbor keeps a donkey specifically to keep them at bay. So many in our area are missing 'outdoor' and 'indoor/outdoor' cats . . . sadly I doubt they will ever come home.

My daughter's neighborhood has an alert system-emails go out as soon as someone sees a coyote and to bring pets inside.

They are so scary but I also wish they had their own place to live and thrive without hurting domestic animals or humans.
