Re: Too many coyotes...
What prompted you to post a 4 year old story that has been debated to death ? I'm pretty sure the park service has not changed anything and that the coyotes in the area that this happened are no more afraid of humans today than they were then.
Hunting free areas are just like gun free zones. Places you can't defend yourself that shift the balance between people and wild animals. The animal rights people probably say this is how it should be, forgetting that man is one of the foremost predators on the planet.
