SoCS – February 22nd 2020

Today’s prompt: animal sounds

This morn I accessed Facebook to find ‘surprise choice’ create a new look.

When I clicked to view info in my hometown group I was flabbergasted at

pics one resident took of a coyote ‘too close for comfort’ and so I read ALL

the comments.

It seems there’s been an increase in coyote sightings in the historic district.

Lovely, besides squirrels, skunks wandering through the park that borders

my apartment complex – a new concern worry about coyotes – dare I walk

to the library or post office.

Irk! Irk!

Coyote in Hometown (2)

No thanks to usual daily walk thru center of town and down the bike path.

It seems coyotes are NOT nocturnal and town residents have been asked

to refrain from calling for assistance unless the coyote appears aggressive.

Really?

For twenty-five years I lived in the countryside amidst pine trees and forest

animals. I wonder why never once did I see a coyote which resembles a wolf.

An internet search on coyote sounds found:

  • Bark
  • Howl
  • Huff
  • Wimper
  • Whines
  • Yelps
  • Yipps

I came to the conclusion: safer to drive to all destinations – access the gym for

exercise.

Perhaps time for sign:
