is some crime everywhere, but no need to be paranoid, set booby traps or be afraid to leave the house without carrying an arsenal.

You jump from home early warning devices that alert you that someone may be in your home illegally to booby traps that that are used to maim or kill.
Suggest you use tin can or bottle pyramids by the doors. Put marbles in tin cans and string across walk areas to alert you of an intruder at night.
That is EXACTLY the type of thing I had in mind for those living the scenerio I suggested. Not for myself. I have several early warning systems in place.

"Coyotes attacked a man in his backyard as he was spending time outdoors with his dog. Three of the animals unexpectedly bit and scratched Faron Scarberry outside his home in Kent.

He said, "They come up toward my face, and I kind of blocked them and pushed them away, and that's when the one grabbed me by the leg."

Better round up the posse'.
Everyone does not have the option of packing up and moving to your so called safe zone but I wish the hood rats of Detroit would move in next to you looking for peace.

You are sorely mistaken if you think there is no crime in New Baltmore. It may be a nice area, but crime exists EVERYWHERE. I live in a very nice area too. But guess what? One day I'm in a restaurant and see a neighbor. He makes mention of a B&E that happened next door to him recently. The neighbor told him that the responding officer said there had been several HUNDRED B&E's in that area. Crimes are almost never put on the news. Always hope for the best, but expect the worst.
I don't live in New Baltimore. I live in the middle of a cornfield. I've never even driven through New Baltimore.

I donít sleep with a gun nor do I sleep with one eye open. We have no crime in my gated community. That can change in a moment. I keep a loaded shotgun and .45 handgun in my bedroom. I also keep a loaded .357 revolver in my desk drawer. Am I paranoid? No, but it costs me nothing to keep them loaded.

Iíve spent over 50 years on this planet; Iíve never had a fire inside my home. Regardless I do keep several fire extinguishers and theyíre inspected every spring and fall. Why would one bother to keep a fire extinguisher if theyíve never had a fire? I also keep batteries, canned goods, generator and other preparations for a storm. Why? Iíve never had a storm which took out my power for more than 24 hours. Only once in my lifetime have I had a flat tire, despite that I keep a spare tire and every oil change I insist it be inspected. Why would I do these things? I would rather be prepared and never need the preparations than desperately need these items and not have them.

I do thank you for providing additional evidence on why itís necessary to keep coyote population down.

The lot of pre WWII Jews lived in a gated community. They called them Judafed,s. It was to keep the rich Jews safe.

You and Faith both have a false sense of security. You can only get to my property up north through a locked gate too.

I went there Monday evening and found the lock and chain gone, the gate swung wide open, the fence knocked over and snowmobile tracks throughout.

Also a very safe neighborhood with "no crime" to speak of.
