    and they keep our packrat population down.  My dad would ask, "So what do you think of the Human Species?"

    •  When i lived in the Tucson Mts (8+ / 0-)

      i would walk my dog early- 7:30 am before the big heat set in.
      Almost every day we would intersect with the coyotes, still on the move from their nocturnal adventures.

      Often, it would be 30 feet or so between us.
      Alpha parent would stop, turn, check us out ...my dog, using good sense , would just stand there and not go all barking she-devil... and when they saw we were harmless, would just lead the family across the road.

      I loved to see this pair- i am sure they recognized us- and was so sad when one of the pups died, probably of snake bite.

      If people would just stop and observe the nature around them, whether it be a tree full of cedar waxwings or a pack of coyotes, they might begin to see the necessary connection between us all.
