Americans expect other countries to let large carnivores wander around at will but when a lone coyote shows up in their neighborhood, it must be hunted down and shot. SMH

Not a coyote but another example of Americans saying carnivores are not welcome. "This is not a habitat for those kind of animals." From the video, it looks exactly like the kind of habitat for a lynx.

KC, I'm interested in reading this article, as I am fascinated with the prospect of seeing a lynx, but when I click on the link, it leads to a dead end...

I watched the video of the capture. They used a leg hold trap then went in and caged. Poor thing. Talking about where to release in upper peninsula Michigan. It is a shame they can not let him be .

We are not afraid of coyotes. Just this morning my husband had to leave in the wee morning hours and we saw a coyote take off and run down the street along the parked cars. Not the first time either. With it being baby rabbit season in our yard I know he probably makes this a regular stop. I think school yards attract them in urban areas because of the open school grounds.

Here in Chicago many coyotes are radio collared and tracked but left to roam. They are good hunters and serve to keep the rodents down.

Keep your small pets on leashes or inside and the coyotes won't eat them...

Thanks for getting that Gloria. I was surprised I screwed it up and more surprised that I was not allowed to fix it.

Got coyotes in my yard for one summer when their territory was torn up for a new housing development. We would eat dinner on our deck and watch the coyotes run along the tree line. I'm glad they're gone because that means the foxes were able to move back in.
