We're with you Olden...Arcadia is doing the right thing. We're not talking about coyotes in the hills. Coyotes have moved into the flatlands, which is not their natural habitat. Over the years they have become increasingly bold. They have become a threat to citizens walking on our streets. Living in Arcadia for over 50 years, we know we never had much of a problem with coyotes until recent years. Our city council was negligent for not addressing this issue several years ago.
Pasadena Humane Society will not let you adopt a dog if you don't have a fenced yard. They have very strict rules to protect animals. However, these animal rights people think it's ok if the aggressive coyotes, who come FAR away from their natural habitat, attack or kill these animals we have rescued from the humane society. We're not talking about a small dog or cat left in a backyard in the hills, we're talking about a retriever in a securely fenced yard far from the hills. What do the animal rights people have to say about this?! Don't these animals have rights! Citizens have a right to live without the fear of being attacked in their neighborhood FAR from the coyotes natural habitat too!!
South Pasadena has some issues they should be addressing, not Arcadia's issues. Betcha those animal rights people would be singing a different tune if they were attacked by a coyote while on a walk in their neighborhood far from the coyote's "natural habitat"!

Agree completely. Coyotes do attack children as well as dogs and cats, this is documented. They have been expanding their range for decades, and of course are now in urban/suburban areas. Idiots from out of town have no business sticking their nose in this.

dude, agreed. But, of course the slanted Pasadena "black hole" News doesn't state the groups name because the lazy bastard reporter forgot the name of the group.

This is absolutely ridiculous. Coyotes are native; cats are not. Cats should be kept indoors and spayed/neutered. Many more cats are killed as the result of pet overpopulation than by coyotes.

If you are talking overpopulation, then please stop having kids! humans are the most invasive species on the planet encroaching upon EVERY single species. The fact is they are being stripped of their natural habitats little by little with every house that is being built closer and closer to the mountains. what makes you think the coyote's life is worth any less ? Protect yourself and your pets by taking the necessary precautions. Picking up a gun and shooting an animal is the easiest way but certainly not the right way.
Don't forget that animals have been here a lot longer than we have and no other species has caused the level of degradation and destructions on this planet like we have. So please extend a little understanding towards mother earth and all its children.
