Yes, that's right. Two women were bitten by coyotes in the same development, Sun City, where my aunt lives...sigh...
Here's the link to the local story:
The coyotes that I've seen have been curious, but not threatening. They ARE afraid of me. If I stand still, I can observe them, but they always take off if I move toward them. It seems to me that coyotes lose their fear IF/WHEN people feed them. And, I heard that the coyotes where I walk have scraps thrown out for them to feed on...so I am careful. While I don't wish to be bitten, I also don't wish harm to come to them, especially if they have pups.
