Here I am in Colorado in the midst of a blizzard and thought I would look outside to see how much snow had accumulated. I saw this large well fed coyote eyeing two neighbor mini schnauzer's. I stepped out and yelled at which point the coyote just looked at me and sauntered off. Imagine my surprise when I got on the computer only to see the story below pop up;

The short of it is two coyotes attacked a young woman hiking alone in a Nova Scotia park and she died from her injuries. My immediate thought was of the old hometown and your problems with wolves. Let's hope it never gets to that point.

Not much to fear from wolves. http://www.yellowstoneinsider.com/issue ... people.php Or coyotes for that matter. Almost 20 people die from dog attacks in the US every year. On average none from wolves or coyotes combined, about 1 from bear, 1 from mountain lion. Want real threats, over 32,000 killed from gunshot in the U.S. every year and even more from vehicle crashes.
