I see that you don't know how the internet works. Topix pulls your "location" from the router ID that you access the net at the first "hop". This can be hundreds of miles from where the poster actually lives.

The router "location" may not even be where the person lives, and is ENTIRELY dependent on how some 22 year old kid at the ISP programs it.

I'm in the San Bernardino Mountains. My ISP routinely shifts from "San Bernardino", "Big Bear", "Redlands" "Lake Arrowhead" and "Lancaster" every few weeks, likely based on routing tables and network loading at the time.

We had a 60lb pit bull taken down by two coyotes this week in our Huntington Beach neighborhood. I have heard about countless encounters here in HB with coyotes over the past year.

Some of the comments on here are ridiculous! There are many areas for coyotes to hide and roam in Huntington Beach... and they are now getting very bold and entering highly residential areas to hunt for prey. If you want to test it yourself, take your dog on a walk in Edison Park at night or evening. You will be stalked by coyotes!

The city's apathy toward this problem is only going to make it worse.

I think you are right. But there are always foolish people protecting dangerous animals - snakes- crocodiles- sharks in areas
where children are allowed to play without suitable protection. You
read about these vicious attacks continuously. Too many idiots having too much say.

I see you live in the San Bernardino Mountains. You should probably not comment at all.

HEAVEN FORBID someone correct you, oh feathered one!
Maybe he should comment, as he likely has more knowledge about coyotes in his little finger living in the mountains than you will ever forget about them.
We already know that he beats you in the internet knowledge category.
Less people would lose their pets if they didn't let them run loose. We live near Brookhurst and Adams and we have ALWAYS had coyotes. Since the 70's. There's this coyote freeway that runs from the San Bernardino Mountains through Corona and the Santa Ana mountain foothills, and it's called the Santa Ana river. Ever heard of it? Mapquest might help you if you've never held a paper map.
Douchey people that think that it's OK to let their pets run loose in Edison park (which runs along a flood-control channel) become witness to their pets taken out. A coyote will rarely, if ever approach a human with a dog on a leash.
Other Douchey people create the coyote problem by taking their trash out early, leaving trash cans outside of a fenced perimeter, and actually intentionally FEEDING the coyotes... and then scream "GOVERNMENT, WE HAVE A PROBLEM!".

A jagged line, with no statistical relevance.

The document proves that Coyote attacks on humans are down over 50% from 2001 to 2004, when the report was released.

Stop feeding them and they will go away.

whoever says coyotes arent a problem are ignorant. they are g etting more aggressive attacking small children. I am scared to death to take my little dog on a walk now because of the coyotes. I shouldnt have to live being scared of the damn coyotes. i love animals but i have to say the coyotes are causing a lot of harm and it will only get worst. its sad a person cannot even keep her dog outside which is fenced in bc a damn coyote. whatever these animals needto be killed

It is a pitiful situation when the "Earth Savers" allow
children to be put in danger to promote a vicious animal's right to roam free in an area. We are
fortunate that we do not live in an age of dinosaurs ,
because there are illogical people who would protect
Trannys and allow them to live in populated (temporary)
areas. It seems like the more these people know , the less sense they have. When they have one of their own injured or killed by predators , they might slowly come over to the other side. The huge number of pets that are killed or injured by coyotes should be
reason enough to control predators in populated areas.
In Texas , the large percentage of pets that disappear ,
have been killed and eaten by coyotes.

We humans have taken over territory once inhabited by Native Americans and wild animals including coyotes, bears, wolves, mountain lions, etc. So why are coyotes so special? According to animal rights activists, coyotes should be allowed to roam and kill our pets and threaten small children at will. What's next--introducing grizzly bears and wolves back into southern California? Why are coyotes considered any differently than any other dangerous animal? According to California state fish and game laws, coyotes are considered a varmint and can be hunted all year around. As a result, all coyotes should be killed and disposed of just like we treat rates and mice.

You are ignorant of what the situation is in Huntington Beach if you think coyotes are not a problem. I don't live in a mobile home park. I live in a normal neighborhood in downtown Huntington Beach and yesterday at 7:00 my dog was in the back yard going to the bathroom and a huge coyote jumped over the 7' wall and grabbed my dog in his mouth and almost got away with him before I chased him off. WTF, my daughter could have been out there playing with the dog and she wouldn't have been as tough as the dog. If I have to choose between coyotes "natural janitors" and my family; you can guess who's going to get it. Animal control said there is nothing they can do if the coyote doesn't wait for them to show up.
Guess what? Anywhere else in the world, besides our hippie engorged California; the response would be, we will trap the coyotes and move or kill them. Simple. NoBama, please take your baby for a walk in the park this evening. Don't mind the coyotes, I'll bet your family's life that you will be fine.
Why did you not shoot it and be done but you went after people that you don't know, so that is why you were good till you started after people when your problem is you don't like it here so leave please. Oh what size dog did it grab in it's mouth? Do you think these animals have any rights in your world? That's all I have.

Don't coyotes have babies too! Maybe they're getting food for there's. How many homeless are living in coyote home's and pushing them out of there spaces not in your neighborhoods or parks? Why haven't the homeless been eaten as they would be easy targets asleep or drunk, they could go downtown and wait for all the drunks that come out of there any night oh no another problem in HB. This city was nice back when most of the hippies lived in this city and had fun in this city no more too many rules that we have let them drop on us.

Coyotes don't " eat " adults , sober or intoxicated .
They probably would eat children . And they certainly
do eat pets. Why would you think that coyotes have more right to an area than homeless people? Now , you sound
like a park ranger . Why not "ship-in" some more rattlesnakes and scorpions to balance out nature ?
Too bad the environment doesn't have an adjusting knob
like your air conditioner.

My dog went out at 3 AM to pee on our yard moments later I heard him screaming. A large coyote was chewing on him I had to chase him off and rush to the vet.. there's still blood on my shirt and my dog is in surgery. Trap and kill this nuisance infestation of dangerous foreign animals. I live in North Huntington and have for over 30 years... never in that 30 years, until just the last few years have we had coyotes.. they're not supposed to be here. I suggested that the city does something about it before residents do.

Ferrel cats are a problem!
Coyotes are natural janitors! Leave them alone!
you're a moron. It isn't safe for small children and/or a nice responsible pet owner with their dog on a leash. These scavenger pack ferrel (ur word for outdoor pets) animals are prone to rabies outbreaks given they eat anything. Then it's not just small pets.. Then u are on the menu also. Do you live in an apartment in HB? Just curious because you're not very smart.. You sound a little more inland-ish...!..

The Coyotes should be skinned alive on the Court House steps for bringing millions of illegals to Calif. Then all CA politicians should be rounded up and sent to Federal Prison for encouraging the invasion and colonization of our State.
Then, and only then, could we expect ANY respect from our children.
That's funny.
