  1. If we keep on developing wild life habitat like we have and still are, we can bet there will be many more attacks. I’m so sorry for the little girl, but we have really messed up the natural habitats for wildlife. For every action, there is a reaction.

  2. My thoughts go out to the child and family. Being a resident on Scott and Portia, seeing the starved coyotes search for any kind of sustenance on these streets and at Elysian Park below, I can’t help but wonder how much longer they will live. I’m certain that it’s frowned upon to feed them, I wouldn’t feed my local raccoons because they will keep coming back for more, but what is our city to do about the safety of our children and the wellness of our wildlife?
