Having no strong opinion on whether or not the non-indigenous coyotes should be provided a sanctuary in our community, I post this article reporting on a movement by our Roswell neighbors. I think it reasonable to assume that at some point a frustrated, scared, or grieving pet owner could grab Poppa's shotgun and that could be a bad thing.

Well as a hunter I can appreciate nature in many forms, however considering whatever predator may have gotten to my (and other pets) I can tell you that if I find the predator that has harmed members of my extended family (that includes pets) there will be serious consequences.... And there's lots of ways to settle the score that aren't quite so noisy as "poppa's shotgun".

Keith and others missing their pets,
I am hopeful that these "family members" did not meet with an untimely death as a result of an encounter with a predator. The coyote issue will not go away and will most likely get worse. I do not advocate the illegal discharge of firearms, however self-defense (pet defense) is another matter. Although I am not a hunter, I respect the right of others to do so and certain hunting is a part of game management programs these days. No real difference than harvesting wild fish in my book. I recall entering a Civic Club chili competition years ago and the only recipe that topped mine was Walt and Patti Cagle's venison chili-darn good stuff!

One thing better about shooting than some other options is that at least you know for sure what was taken. I'm with you Keith-mess with the family and pay the price! Be careful out there.

Keith,
I saw a black cat following a white cat around the pool area this morning. Since I was across Lake Garrett in our house, I can't say the black cat resembles yours, only that it was a totally black cat and totally intent on following the white one. The last that I saw them, they were headed up Mountain Park Road toward the picnic parking area. Maybe your older kitty has spring fever and will come home. I hope so.

Thanks Trish. I just got back from criss-crossing the neighborhood for the 20th+ time. I didn't see either cat, but I do appreciate you taking the time to post that you had seen a black cat.

You've rekindled hope that our cat may yet be alive.

Gratefully,

Keith
