Now let’s talk pros and cons:

“Pros: It’s a giant bear!”

“Cons: Will not fit in a normal size car”

Oh, and be sure to see if this critter will fit into your lifestyle.

Happy Christmas!

The Wild Coyotes of Forest Hill Extension – As Seen on the Fourth of July – COYOTE CROSSING, Indeed

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

I’ll vouch for the coyote part of this photo showing the poor critter wandering the early morning Streets of San Francisco, but I won’t vouch for the sign being there IRL.

In either event, this is How We Live Now in urban Frisco, where urban Laguna Honda is Coyote Country:

Now let’s think back a few years, when writer CW Nevius fretted over “dangerous” urban coyotes – this was just a couple years after he moved here from where, Walnut Creek? Concord? One of those. Anyway, since then, how many people have been killed / seriously injured by fighting dogs? A few, at least. But coyotes? None. Perhaps Chuck was fretting over the wrong thing, trying to get the facts to fit his column’s format, IDK.

Hey, should some dog owners should change behavior instead of going crying to Mr. East Bay Everyman?

Just asking…

(You oughta take down this sign, DOG SHOW, COW PALACE or CBS or somebody, ’cause the dog people have split town by now.)

When we get around to making another animal palace, which species should we choose?

Here he is:

I’ve never seen anything like that in a signature line.

In other news, Charlie lives – he just got a life sentence on a farm someplace after his mouthpiece struck a plea bargain with Dennis Herrera and the San Francisco City Attorney’s Office.

But, come to think of it, attorney John Mounier is actually “The Animal Attacker Protector,” IRL.

Oh well.

Attention Dog Owners: Golden Gate Park is, Once Again, Coyote Country, So Leash Your Critters Accordingly

Monday, January 14th, 2013

You see this? This is JFK Jr. Drive in Golden Gate Park from over the weekend:

Another great nature shot from famous San Francisco photographer David Cruz. As always, He’s Everywhere You Want To Be

So this is a good time to review the rules:

“Can my dog walk around the park with me beyond the designated off-leash areas?

Yes, your four-legged friend may accompany you throughout the park if you both obey the leash laws of California.”

Anyway, this is what a cry for help looks like.
