Coyotes Take Over Abandoned House ~ Glendale

Mark Twain called them "the most friendless of God's creatures", but they've lived around humans and been encouraged by the lazy or ignorant to get more and more comfortable in urban areas. Now a pack of coyotes have taken over a burned out shell of a house in Glendale, the LA Times reported this week.

The home in the 300 block of Brockmont Drive has been abandoned since being gutted by a fire in November. Amid complaints from neighbors about blight and safety issues, the owners got a permit Aug. 5 to demolish the house, but in the meantime, a pack of at least seven coyotes has been seen on the property

The coyote house has turned into a wild party enclave for the group of coyotes, where they can feel free to stretch out their feet, howl at the moon, and prowl the neighborhood looking for garbage and other delectables. While coyotes play an important role in the ecosystem by eating rodents and other vermin, when they get fed by humans, either by food being left our or by intentional feeding, the end result can be death for the coyote at the hands of animal control.

MSNBC claims that neighbors in Glendale are opposed to killing the coyotes from the Glendale Coyote House.

Rita Cohen lives near the burned-out home and said two weeks ago one of the coyotes tore up her spa cover."It's a pain but I don't want them euthanized," she said. "I don't think it'll do any good anyway because they're all over." Asked if she thinks they will move on once the house is torn down, Cohen said: "They will go — probably back to my yard."
