Letter: Coyotes can be beneficial, too
I am always baffled by people who move to a wooded area and then are surprised and even offended when they see wildlife there. My husband and I have lived in heavily wooded areas for more than 20 years, with children and dogs, in harmony with all the creatures that share the area. It really doesn’t take that much effort, just a “real” fence for the area you actively use.
No wild animals should be fed by humans. The coyotes have learned some behaviors because of humans, and humans can help them unlearn them. They do much to keep the rodent population in check when left alone.
