Coyotes in Los Feliz: Not Bold, Got It?


Griffith Park Coyote, originally uploaded by patrick_cates.

HERE'S A CURIOUS retort to a quote from former Gilmore Girl Lauren Graham. In July, Lauren told the LA Times, "I haven't been to Griffith Park since the fire, but it's been scary around here since then. The coyotes are getting really bold." Five months later, the follow-up email to me:
"As a resident of Los Feliz, please don't spread crap like 'the coyotes are really bold'.... Nothings new with the wildlife except they are misplaced because of the fires and what does bold mean....really stupid comment.

"They are the same as they have always been and will always be, trying to exist and survive in there unique family structures like you and I...what do would you think they would say about people if they had a blog.....would it be truthful and accurate....Perhaps they would tell you this is there home too, that people try to poison, shoot, and harm them....maybe they really should be more bold and fearless ...... I still say she's full of crap."
I, for one, am looking forward to the Coyotes of Los Feliz blog!

I remember that article and was equally incensed by her flippant misinformed characterization of coyotes.

And a coyote blog would rock.

Please never subject us to such atrocious spelling and grammer again.

They are just hungry. I get pretty scary when I'm hungry. And the poor anorexics hanging at The Alcove--that's way scarier.

"They're" not getting bold--that is one single coyote that has chosen that picnic dell as his territory. I drive through the park most days, and he's often there. He has gotten too used to being near humans, though, which makes me worry for his safety...

You were polite to skip all the [sic]s that you might have put in. Coincidentally, coyotes are excellent copy editors, so the writer might take advantage of that in the future.
