    Yep, this is close to my neighborhood! Thr town received text alerts about it. We sometimes hike in that area. Luckily there are a lot of hooved rats (aka deer) around here, wild (feral?) turkeys too.

    Eh. More people, building more houses to put their fat butts in on what was wild lands, plus more 'Generica' strip malls, more acclimation and a resulting reduction in fear and caution by the wildlife, combined with the need to find food and and otherwise survive...and this stuff is not only happening more frequently, but will continue to do so. He/she probably figures they can find a nice little Fido or Fluffy for lunch, because suburban kitty needs to eat too.

    My personal experience highlights the incredible ignorance of so many to the local residents. People used to move into our neighborhood, and in a few weeks their cat or small dog was on a flyer at the mailbox. They ain't coming back honey, they were picked up by an owl or fox or coyote. Learning what it out there, what it does, and protecting yourself and your pets and family is basic responsibility. Failing to do so is ignorant neglect and there is no excuse for it.

    Animals are learning how to be very successful in man's suburbia and even in fully urban areas. A perfect example is coyotes in Chigaco, or foxes in the UK. No one likes to look out and see a bear or a cat or a gator in the yard (except maybe me), but we had all better learn to get used to it because it's not going away, and its our duty to peacefully coexist with them IMO. Just look outside, note they are out there, keep the pets inside, and wait a while to go out. They'll move on. No reason to freak out unless your kids are out there.

    OK, rant off :)

    Oh yeah? I'll see your family of Bobcats and raise you the Jaguar that lives in the mountains just south of my home. BTW, you never hear me complaining about pesky kids in the neighborhood, do you? :)

    Agree 1000%. to the whole rant. The coyotes in our neighborhood are using the sewers to get around. Not kidding. LA has those concrete river tributaries. They're using those to get around and coming up thru the drains that have broken bars on them. Or they're just sauntering down the street. I saw a female just strutting thru the hospital parking lot the other morning.

    ME TOO! but our dogs would be going crazy.

    Just outside my door, every time I leave the house. He likes Tuna. :)

    Seriously, the mountains just south of my house have been home to some interesting wildlife. There's a sufficient buffer zone that I don't think any of these critters ever find their way to inhabited areas. The area has innumerable deer and I imagine that is the attraction for the Jaguars which are spotted and photographed from time to time, in the area.
