I object to The Independent’s scare tactics about the coyote. I have 20 years of experience living near them. They frequently walk through my property and live near my house. There are wild spaces around where I live and several walking trails that I use daily. I often see them on my walks, and I have never been harmed, bothered by them, or seen the least bit of aggression. Once I rounded a blind corner and surprised a pack of them. They quickly scattered off away from me.

I appreciate that they help the ecology in their diet of mice, rabbits, ground squirrels, other small rodents, insects, even reptiles, and the fruits and berries of wild plants.
