Pesky nature: coyotes and birds won’t behave

There have been nearly 400 reports of coyotes in town – the city says that doesn’t mean 400 animals, but repeated reports of a small number – but they’ve bitten people and their dogs, so the city’s under pressure to be seen doing something about them, i.e. kill them.

Meanwhile the airport is coping with birds on the tarmac. Tsk, nature! Can’t live with it, have to kill it.

Now there’s a coyote hotline, which seems like a natural prompt for a brief comedy routine.
