Hmm, a very large dog just came up to the window (outside) here where I am working--about 5 feet way from me--and starting a loud howling for a few minutes, and left. (not my dog). Last night there was a raccoon there all night, and a coyote wandering around. Now I am wondering what is so interesting right here outside.

(I think it was a dog, because it was wearing a reflective collar... but now, I am not so sure).

(For the record, the dog here inside was very confused--but not alarmed--about why a strange dog was howling at the window) #random #dogs

Where do you live? Do you live in a rural area? How is there so much wildlife around?

@railmeat I'm currently in the middle of a Southern California suburb, blocks from open space. However, coyotes thrive where there are humans...

@ai6yr man, I will trade you any number of coyotes for the damn foxes behind my house. Have you heard the sounds those things make? From the Great Below, I tell you.

Plus they troll our dog mercilessly. If he ever gets one I won't even be mad. They sneak into our yard and leave droppings in his bathroom spot, drives him nuts.

@me 🤔 Wow, those are fighting moves there....

Oh look, now the coyote is there.

@ai6yr Did you get bitten by a werewolf? Maybe they're all really gathering there because of YOU.

    @inquiline @glightly That would be a great idea for some of the kink-minded joggers around here who only wear black while running in the street 🤔

    @ai6yr Oh, man, I saw a guy walking along a street with no sidewalk..all in black. I really wanted to yell that he should at least get reflective sneakers or something.

    @glightly I've seen quite a few, and nearly hit a few (seriously, could not see them). Not a good thing... too many pedestrians hit round here (fast speeds, pedestrians wearing black and running with earbuds in at 4am, etc.)

    @ai6yr A lot of that here in Davis. Lots of feckless youth new to Davis each Fall.

    Davis is also to blame for its bad infrastructure in so many places, though...

    ai6yr, avatar

    @glightly Oh, certainly, combination of bad infrastructure + poor judgement = tragedy for all involved.

    @ai6yr When night hiking, coyotes have always been a big source of comfort to me. They don't hang around if there is a lion in the area.

    @W6KME Normally I don't mind coyotes... except the one time over near Satwiwa when I came across a pack of what must have been 20 of them. I was taking photos and then I came across them, and they all looked at me VERY intently... so I very slowly backed down the trail and left, LOL.

    Well, at least there will be no rats here!

    @ai6yr no cats either

    @MeTwitt That is true! Cats are portable lunch meat for coyotes.
