Coyotes have been more visible than usual this time of year - blame the prolonged drought.  Aside from the usual blame on open trashcans & people feeding their pets outside & not picking up the food bowls, coyotes might find urban chickens enticing

Coyotes are attracted to the smell of food & trash.  I've received a number of early morning (6-7AM) coyote sighting reports around India & Silver Lake Blvd, near Ralph's.  We should be looking at restaurants & grocery stores leaving trashcans open.  See the Google Map of the Ralph's overflowing trash areas above & their proximity to India St & Silver Lake Blvd homes.  People want to live near shops & restaurants, but don't always think of the unintended consequences.
