Letter to the Editor: Coyote Forces Campus into Shelter-In-Place Mode

Thanks for the picture of the limping coyote in White Rock. He and a more able bodied buddy, have been hanging out in the mornings for some time in the area. They seem pretty unfazed by humans when I’ve encountered them outside my home on the way to work.

These two guys have also been a nuisance at Pinon Elementary School. Several times the campus has been placed in the Shelter-In-Place mode because of their presence on the playground.

Efforts to have them displaced have met a lot of bureaucratic blind alleys. It’s a real problem. 

As cute as these two guys are, they represent a threat to our dogs, our cats, and more importantly, our children.
