The local angle of this story was fascinating. The references to books and films about Bay Area coyotes were perfect. Often, there just isn't time to research a subject, so including the library call numbers was very helpful. More people are likely to check out these items because they are so easy to locate!
I love to read about wildlife, and particularly local stories. Please provide more of these articles about animals.
By raising awareness, you are doing the animals themselves a great service. People are more aware of coyotes and other undomesticated creatures. Eventually, a community consensus will develop about how to manage these little beasts that are so vulnerable to us humans.
I'm glad the coyotes came back to Golden Gate park. Just by their presence they have proven that the Park authorities did not solve the problem by shooting a mating pair of coyotes a few years ago. A well-informed public will be able to "crowd-source" ways to approach urban wildlife until we find an approach that works.
