Just for the Record

We had a family of ducks living in our pool during the winter. We had a baby skunk living under our deck this past spring. On a couple occasions, we've had raccoons come inside the house to chomp on the cat food. The backyard is filled with squirrels, hummingbirds and an owl. Today, when I went to swim, there was a coyote in our backyard - a coyote! He scurried over the fence pretty fast, but I couldn't mistake him for anything else - it was a wild dog. We live in the middle of Los Angeles - and I feel like we are living out on the prairie!

I know you (and all of us) wouldn't want your wildlife (pets) to be attacked by the wolf but it is kinda scary. Why is the wild dog being forced to look for food so close to man? Is the weather so extreme there is less and less small rodents/animals to eat? Our world is one big weird extreme place now!!
