Don't worry, no one has been eaten by a coyote. YET. But now my mom is trying to convince me to keep it as a pet. See chain of emails HERE:
Me: Did I tell you there's a coyote over by the pond by our apartment?
Mom: I read your blog. That is cool, we have them here sometimes. They LOVE dog food by the way. May want to keep some close to the front door and grab a handful each time you head outside "just in case."
Me: Mom, are you encouraging me to feed a WILD ANIMAL? Then it will never leave! And it might eat Phoebe!
Mom: And the flaw in that plan would be?! Then you could sort of have a dog!
Me: Yeah, a dog that might eat my face!
Mom: Oh, there are always challenges with being pet owners.
Me: I'm putting this on my blog.
