Mule, I am very surprised that has not happened here in Tucson, Arizona. I live on the NW side of Tucson and the coyotes run through here all the time. Once the pups are out on their own, the all night howling will start around the 1st of September.
Here is a photo I took last week. There were two of them and that is why this one is looking back. They aren't afraid of you either.
Mule, yes that's close to me but no suprise at all. Matter of fact, My wife and I saw the helicopter behind Jess Ranch golf course and a bunch of cops with shotguns running all around ( like they are going to get the coyote lol). I've seen many a coyote out in them alfalfa fields by Tussing ranch rd. Sooner or later I knew this would happen and it's not the last of it. Those people are lucky the coyote didn't kill that kid. Since I have lived here in the high desert I know of coyotes, bobcats, Mt lions and bears that have been in the town of Apple Valley. It really makes me mad in a way, all the animal lovers and Bee Bee brains from the big city build homes where coyotes, Mt lions etc live and when one shows up all hell brakes lose. By the way the hunting out here is great lol.
Hi NASA, lol I only drink the beer out here. Hey, Charlene and I both laffed at that statement in the paper. We are getting out of Apple Valley ASAP, I can't believe how many people from down the mountian are moving out here.
