The howls say it all

Dear Editor:

I have seen and heard several coyotes in the Highlands area. When we had a home in Snowmass, the coyotes weren’t even afraid of humans. They would just stand and look at you and not run away.

I am always afraid they will get my little dog. One night when I put the dogs out for their bathroom duty around 10 p.m., I heard all this yelping. I ran to the front door and there was a coyote right there, not 10 feet away as my dogs were trying to get back in the house.

Yes, there is a coyote problem. Just listed to the howling at night. There is also a fox problem in the Highlands area. They aren’t afraid of us either.
