Ailing Song Dog near Brentwood

Many thanks to Dave Harper for sharing his photographs of an ill coyote. The dog is suffering from mange. It can be cured, but the trick is capturing the "trickster". Coyotes are very difficult to catch. We'll see if we can't come up with a plan. We'll need all-hour volunteers for tracking/monitoring. Email us if you're interested, HERE.

  2. I've heard that eating rats that have been poisoned with rat poison makes them more vulnerable.
