... are packs of wolves a higher priority danger than brown/grizzly attacks? or is that a myth?...I am really uninformed... down here the stray cat population has been decimated by coyotes... a friend down in Highlands county had problems in the last couple of years losing new born calves to coyotes

I see and hear coyotes n town routinely. We keep our kitties indoors. don't think coyotes, even when they are ingroups, are a threat to humans. Young children might be an exception.

Coyotes-do keep down the rodent population, which in many places carry diseases fatal to humans (e.g.,hanta virus), so there is something to be said for having them around.

Coyotes are smart. Mostly they seem smart enough to leave the apex predator species alone.

Which is probably why they have increased their range, even to such places as Florida

UncleGoo...many years ago, saw a boat that had its hull holed by a 12ga power head that had been dropped ... it was afloat only thanks to the flotation... did not have the safety pin installed on the power head...

Heh, those safeties only work when they're used;-)
I'll bet that made some people jump, when it went off.

I just saw your location. I used to live on James St. just north of Gulf Dr...1984-5. Long time ago, now.
