Knowing neighbours walk their dogs in the area where the coyote was spotted and letting them know is not such a bad thing that people need to bully them about it.

What's next? 'Beware there are squirrels in the mountains!


Yes there are, and they are just coming out of hibernation. They are hungry and looking for nuts. Best keep your hat on when out walking.
If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

Nothing wrong with reminding people. Some people are foolish and don't know. Some people are thinking of other things and forget.

There probably isn't a square inch of this city where you could never, ever see a coyote. And no, that's not an invitation to brag about your MMA-trained guard dog or your impregnable back yard. My point is, they can potentially be anywhere.
My fervent hope is that you and your tax dollars will be reunited in the afterlife.

Fancy , WADR , they should ALREADY KNOW things like that ...

There will be wild , and sometimes dangerous , animals in the forests and on the mountains ...
Don't bring your "boom box" to the bathtub...
Don't try to rescue stuck toast burning in the toaster with a metal knife WITHOUT unplugging it first...
DON"T throw water on a grease fire ...

And NEVER , under any circumstance , lick a steel pole outside in the winter .....

C'mon , people ,REALLY ??
And the "bully " thing ??? Get with it .

Neighours put out warnings for all sorts of animals in the area. Never once have I heard anyone called names because of it. Yes, it IS bullying. Yes people know animals are around but coyotes can get aggressive and it makes people take more notice when someone takes the time to say something. There is ZERO reason to make an issue out of it like this thread - shame.

Urban coyotes are around. Doesn't hurt to be reminded once in a while.

You worried a squirrel will take your dog? Now that would be a wuss.

At least some people were appreciative.
Other people commenting on the post thanked Nestman for alerting them, as they were planning on heading out with their dogs.


You get a pack of coyotes after your mutts, you'd be hard pressed to save them.


Valid point, however I think what the OP is getting at, and I agree, is that when you live in interface areas, as pretty much all of Winfield is, then you have to expect coyotes, bears, deer, and such all the time.

There are hundreds of coyotes around here, and frankly it would be more surprising to be out for a walk on trails, and not see one.

To read the story, one would think that what this woman saw was an unusual event, when it's anything but.

I've been on lots of trails hiking and haven't seen a coyote - sign yes, animal itself no.

I would never call someone a wuss for putting out a friendly reminder. I appreciate heads up as obviously others do.

coyotes rarely kill deer they go after smaller animals and scavenge they certainly wont have an impact on the deer population
