The trials of life

Dear Editor:

Coyotes eat Labradoodle alive (“Coyote attacks, kills pet Labradoodle on Smuggler,” May 21, 2011, The Aspen Times). Welcome to the resort environment.

On the food chain depends our survival. Predators eat prey. It’s nature’s way.Humans are civilized predators who buy their prey in markets filled with death. Humans are naturally compassionate. We realize that coyotes have the right to eat. Our empathy goes to the dog who would kill a kitten.

We won’t to do better in life if our compassion tries to change the food chain. Good environmentalists would not do that.
