You can see it now by moonlight alone.

It's a special night on the island tonight. On the full moon, on a clear night, when the surf is low and those songdogs of the dunes sing their disjointed, staccato Concerto de Coyote.

The sound is buffered somewhat by the dunes and very pleasant when you have a comfortable place to sleep. Not like annoying dogs barking disturbing your rest.

Wow!

I feel bad how so many hate coyotes. I am scared of them, but I wish people would leave them alone.

There are hater's for anything you can think of these days. I call them by another name, the jaundiced misanthropic. I had lunch at a Pho shop in Austin today. There was a hipster wearing a "I Hate Hipsters" t-shirt. His girlfriend was covered in brilliant tattoos wearing a pink t-shirt proclaiming " I'm A Virgin" (This is an old shirt). I hate Austin traffic.

So many people! Ranchers hate them, especially. And a lot of people in our city hate them. They can get pets. Of course, if pets weren't fed by us, they'd be preying on smaller or weaker creatures, too. But getting a pet killed by a coyote will turn people against them. I think coyote habitat is spreading, though.

Maybe someone who sees one running off with their best laying hen in it's mouth or whose favorite cat or small dog or puppy became a coyote's dinner.

Coyotes can be a costly nuisance. Like wild pigs, they can also be very prolific. Unlike like pigs (which I see no conceivable good out of them and yet I suppose there are be people who have never had to deal with their destruction ask why would anyone hate a wild pig) coyotes do have a purpose, but when they are over populated and certain conditions prevail, they can also become a big PITA.

People habitat is spreading fast!

Recall some seven years ago when the Las Cruces area was suffering a severe drought? A friend there, with a lush yard, complained the jackrabbits were invading his property and the coyotes showed up after the jackrabbits. According to my friend, the rabbits damned near killed all of his chili petines and the coyotes were taking dips in his pool
