NEW SIGN IN COLLEGE PARK WEST POINTS TO ANOTHER DIFFICULT SPRING FOR COYOTE-HUMAN COHABITATION

Three weeks after a coyote alert was called in East Long Beach, officials from Long Beach and Seal Beach are about to post a warning banner at the entrance to the College Park West neighborhood (above).

But coyotes are clever (right), not to mention more than a little bit deserving of our sympathy, cornered as they are by vanishing habitat we keep taking. Also, the rainy winter improved breeding conditions, resulting in more and larger litters of hungry pups. Of course, the last few springs the explanation was that the drought drove them into neighborhoods.  That’s what we mean about clever.

    I would put out dog food for the coyotes as well as my dogs.
    IF possible, I’d attempt to capture or lure some into my back yard so I could attempt domestication.
