Here's a great article about coyotes. I didn't know they usually pair up for life, but if one dies the other one will search out a new mate. I saw the coyotes pictured below on my drive to Denver a couple of days ago. There were three of them playing in a meadow. They looked like they were chasing some small animals. They'd jump up and pounce on the ground similar to how a cat might do. It was fun to watch. I rarely get to see coyotes. I hear them around my cabin sometimes and I've seen one a few times, but I always enjoy a sighting of these beautiful wild dogs.
On the news recently a lot of people have expressed anger about the coyotes encroaching on their suburban homes and killing small pets. I don't know what the answer is. I wish the coyotes could be relocated to an area where they'd have food, shelter and enjoyment. I don't like to see them be looked at as villains.

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.
