Pug vs Coyote @ Gilbert Riparian Preserve

Post by chumley » Sep 03 2014 8:09 am

This is generating some fantastic comments on that social site.

I think normally this coyote feeds on feral cats at the Gilbert Riparian Preserve. ;)

The dog owners think it's cute that the two like to play with each other.

After 200+ comments telling them how naive, irresponsible, and stupid they are, the owner responded:
(quote from FB comments)
LOL at all you armchair animal experts who think you know what's going on here. Your outrage is ridiculous. Harvey and I walk these trails often, and we see the coyote every time we go. It's obviously the only coyote on that small acreage of land. If you've ever been, you'd know there's no lack of food for the coyote. Your uninformed, knee-jerk reactions are keeping you from enjoying a simple video of two unlikely friends. If it were a lion cub and a pygmy goat, you'd have shared it already. But, such is the life of an internet cynic.

I enjoyed taking photos of the coyotes at the Gilbert Riparian Reserve. I saw at least two last time I visted.

Just like there is a small pack in the Usery Park, anyone who is upset about the number and proximity of wildlife, should realize they were here first!

I've always enjoyed the yips and howls out of the coyote clan at Usery. :y:
And for that matter, I don't mind the coyote or the family of foxes we have in our neighborhood as they compete for first dibs on keeping the stray cat population down. I don't care who wins, as long as they keep it up... as in keep the cat population down.
:whistle:
