The coyotes won’t scare

By far the strangest report I have ever gotten from my wife at work: “The coyotes won’t scare.” And she’s not a park ranger.

She works at a large botanical garden with some undeveloped areas that harbour a few shy coyotes (and owls and more). Bet they are emboldened by hunger—because human food waste has been greatly reduced by the pandemic. #strangetimes……Update: months later in early 2021, Vancouver’s Stanley Park has closed trails due to “aggressive coyotes.” Sheesh!
