wildlife spotting  
Most mornings on my commute, as I cruise through the city, I tend to have to deal with bad drivers, jaywalkers, the odd bicyclist or two...

Today? I stopped in the middle of Golden Gate Park to let a coyote cross the road in front of me.

Now *that's* something you just don't see every day!

I saw that article yesterday when I got home from work, as well as another another depressing one posted 10 days later. In the second article, it talks about how the coyotes who were shot became habituated to humans because they were BEING FED BY THE PUBLIC!!! ...leading to them becoming more aggressive when humans come into their area, walking little appetizers on strings in their "territory." Genius, people, genius. I hate how some people believe the best thing for wild animals is to treat them like pets. (le sigh)

Also, did you see the original July 16 article? It has a few more facts about urban coyotes that I found fascinating, including their range of up to 45 miles in a day!
