Three Coyotes!

Another sighting: This time it's three coyotes on Shasta Way in the Briarcliff area. These things never get old.

Some might say coyotes aren't news anymore. Been there, done that. In fact, I think this is like the fourth post on coyotes, so one could make the argument that coyote sightings are no longer newsworthy. Make the argument if you'd like.

It's also true that coyotes are sensationally awesome. I tend to avoid sensationalizing anything, but I have no problem going nuts about coyotes. Everytime I get an email with "coyote" in the subject line, my day is a little bit better.

So, moving forward... There's been another coyote sighting. This time it's Shasta Way in the Briarcliff neighborhood. Courtesy of the North Briarcliff Civic Association:

A neighbor was driving down Shasta at 10 pm Sunday night and saw 3 large coyotes walking down Shasta and turn and walk up a driveway on Shasta.

Coyote 101: Coyote's feed mostly at dawn and dusk. They will eat pet food, garbage, seeds and fruit. Keep your garbage covered and secure - don't leave out food that can tempt them. Also, watch out for your smaller pets.  Coyotes will attack a wide range of small mammals that includes small dogs and cats, as well as rodents, squirrels and rabbits.

Now, if I could just figure out a way to get some Ennio Morricone or something to play whenever you read this story...

ED NOTE: I accidentally misspelled the word "three" in the dek headline of this story, resulting in the phrase "tree coyotes" for a few moments after it posted. I only bring this to your attention because there is no such thing as a tree coyote no matter much I might want such things to exist.
