Coyotes have taken over lots of territory

The coyote was originally an animal of the Mexican desert and, beginning about one century ago, began expanding its range.

Editor: Re: “Share the planet with wildlife,” (letter, The Times, July 3).

The letter writer’s heart is in the right place, but not her brains.  The young lady who complained that we have invaded the coyotes’ territory should do some research before speaking.

The coyote was originally an animal of the Mexican desert and, beginning about one century ago, began expanding its range north, west and east.

It is now on the Atlantic as well as Pacific coast.  I can remember when the first of them appeared in Fraser Valley, and the people who shouted “impossible” at that time.

Good luck to them but, unlike your correspondent (whom you should have corrected), I say “Greetings, Stranger.”  El hombre lobo.
