    I don't know of any case where a solo coyote attacks or person for that matter anything around the person.  

    I saw my 14 year old, arthritic dog chase one away from me while I was picking plums one day.  

    I thought Rick Perry was an idiot for spontaneously deciding to shoot a solo one while he was jogging.

    However if there's three together, look out!

      a study set up specifically due to the increased incidence of bites. Not sure how many there have been, maybe three or four a year in the greater metro area. The problems are in the urban setting, not in the urban/wildland interface.

        are forced to adapt to ours.  That makes us more a part of their food chain.  

        I've been observing deer behavior for the last 6 years, since I moved to small town Texas.  Many people here avoid driving at night because of deer hitting cars- serious about the deer doing the hitting.  Our population increase is about 12 years old.  This year I've seen deer standing calmly at the side of the road until cars pass, then calmly stroll across that road.  No more panicky moves, just observation and safe passage.  

        {I used to be sentimental about deer.  They eat most of my plants though, so now they're rats on stilts.   ;-) }

        I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
