RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Things got a little crazy at a California college when animal services had to come and remove a coyote from a bathroom.

>> Read more trending news

The coyote was discovered on the Jurupa Unified Mission Middle School campus and ran scared into a bathroom stall when discovered by staff, the Riverside Department of Animal Services said in a news release. .

Staff members told animal control officers they had seen the coyote before and affectionately nicknamed him “Wile E.” in a nod to the character from Warner Bros. cartoons. The coyote had been spotted near campus, but hadn’t been on school grounds until Monday.

The Riverside Animal Services Department shared a video of an officer removing the coyote from the bathroom. As the officer approaches the stall, you can hear him say, “That’s not a puppy. He’s an adult coyote.

The male coyote is believed to be nine months old and was released in open land away from the school, KABC reported.

“We are delighted that this incident went smoothly and that all of the children were doing well, and we were able to return the coyote to its more natural habitat, said Erin Gettis, director of animal services.

Officials said they don’t know what attracted the animal to the property, KNBC reported.

At the end of the video shared by the Riverside Department of Animal Services, the officer can be heard saying goodbye to the coyote, saying “Bon voyage.”

The incident comes about a month after Cohasset police issued a warning about coyote attacks in the area.

Coyote activity continues to threaten the lives of small pets in Greater Boston.

In Cohasset, a dachshund is believed to be alive after being attacked shortly after 8 a.m. Thursday morning, according to NBC 10 Boston.

Amy Martin told NBC she rushed home after her boyfriend called her at work, alerting her that a coyote had jumped over a four-foot fence and attacked her 14-year-old dog. books, “Tsuki”, as he watched her in the yard.

The coyote dropped the dog before escaping through the fence, leaving Tsuki to bleed, NBC reported.

Martin told the outlet that she and her boyfriend took the dog to the emergency vet, noting: ‘She had really big holes in her – and thankfully she wasn’t bleeding anymore – but she’s quite small so it was very disturbing that it happened in our garden in the middle of the morning.

The incident comes about a month after Cohasset police issued a warning about coyote attacks occurring in the area, particularly in the early hours of the morning.

In August, other coyote attacks on dogs were reported in Wayland, Sudbury and Concord.

To learn more about coyotes and precautions to protect pets, watch the video below, which was shared in November 2021 by Natural Resources Officer Josh Kimball, who handles animal service calls in Cohasset and Norwell:

A Massachusetts woman is grateful her dog is okay after a coyote attacked the 14-pound dachshund Thursday morning in the backyard of her Cohasset home.

Amy Martin says “Tsuki” is stitched up and healed, but is resting at home after the “scary” incident. She says Tsuki was outside in her fenced yard with her boyfriend when a coyote appeared out of nowhere around 8:15 a.m.

“He said he didn’t hear anything except that she let out a really weird scream, and he’d never heard that sound come out of her before,” Martin explained. “He looked up and saw she was in the coyote’s mouth.”

Cohasset police are urging residents to be on alert after two coyote attacks on the same day.

Although they aren’t sure exactly how the coyote got into their yard near Beechwood and Riverview Drive, Martin’s boyfriend says he saw it jump over the 4ft fence to escape after scaring him off.

“We never let her wander out of sight because we know it could happen, but you don’t really think you have to be on top of her and something is going to jump into your yard that’s fenced and gated. . II guess it’s a false sense of security.”

Nearby resident Laura Kline says it’s concerning as a mother with a small child. She says she had no idea it was happening so close to home.

Martin says she knows how lucky they are that it hasn’t gotten worse. Now she urges others to be vigilant.

“I really thought, yeah, today is the day we lost her, she’s gone,” Martin recalled. “Fortunately, it was the reverse result of that.”

About a month ago, police said there were two more attacks in town, one on Highland Avenue and the other in Whitney Thayer Woods, where a man said he was attacked while he went out with his dogs.

Kansas Wesleyan’s Aiden Richmond wasn’t going to pass up his last opportunity to play well in a tournament on his home golf course.

Richmond shot 77 of 5 over par and finished third with an 80-77-157 total in the Central Plains Invitational on Tuesday at Salina Country Club. She was one stroke behind runner-up Ida Lihufvdh of Bethany (78-78—156) and 13 strokes behind individual champion Cristina Galban of Southwestern Christian (74-71—145).

KWU finished second as a team with a total of 324-321—645, four strokes behind Southwestern Christian (326-315—641) and six strokes better than third place Bethany (322-329—651).

“It was really fun and I was happy with it,” Richmond said. “It’s my last year and my last home tournament and I feel like I’ve made it the best home tournament for me personally.”

Richmond said she’s approaching everything with a sense of urgency this year.

“I feel like that every tournament, in everything we do in golf, that’s going to be the last time I can do that and I better make the most of it,” she said.

Richmond finished fifth after Monday’s first 18 holes but moved up the final 18 holes.

“My practices, hitting these fairways, my irons were working pretty well,” she said. “A few unlucky shots but my swing overall was hitting well. Certainly if some putts had dropped it would have been a bit better, but I’m happy with the way I played.”

Richmond said Greens Tuesday was different from Monday and kept things interesting.

“The greens were tough,” she said. “(Monday) the (balls) were rolling very differently than today in my opinion. Working with slower greens yesterday versus they were rolling a lot more today was definitely something to get used to.”

KWU coach Coleman Houk said Richmond has been playing well lately.

“She’s really turned it on here for the past four weeks,” he said. “She was top three in Wichita (Crestview Fall Invitational) and had a phenomenal outing last week, so we knew she was playing really well coming in. It’s exciting to see what she’s going to do in Match Play (Kansas Conference) (next week). She’s a notoriously good player in match play.”

Houk said his improvement was no accident.

“She takes as much time if not more than anyone here, he said. “She stays after training; we see her here at weekends just to work and it showed today.”

Corey Mein (SR/Liberal, Kan.) also cracked the top 10 for Wesleyan tied for seventh with a score of 79-84—163. Abby Donovan (SO/Concordia, Kan.) finished 14th (82-83—165); Hannah Hart (JR/Ventura, Calif.) and Chaney Littell (FR/Winfield, Kan.) were among five golfers tied for 15th at 167, with Hart shooting 90-77 and Littell 83-84. Thalia Ramirez (JR/Olathe, Kan.) tied for 22nd (85-85—170); Skylar Smallwood (FR/Henryetta, Okla.) tied for 25th (89-84—173); Morgan McReynolds (FR/La Junta, Colorado) tied for 35th (88-92—180); Abby Day (FR/Pryor, Okla.) finished 38th (94-90—184) and Vanessa Sexton (SO/Burleson, Texas) finished 39th (93-93—186).

“We played hard for two rounds,” Houk said of his team. “Southwestern Christian are a super strong team and would have loved to get this win. But we’ll move on to next week’s game and we’ll probably be the only seed for both sides.”

The KCAC Match Play event will take place October 3-4 at Mariah Hills Golf Course in Dodge City.

WILTON – The coyotes are here. They will stay, so we might as well adapt to coexist with them.

Chris Schadler of NH/Vermont Project Coyote presented an animal program at the Collaborative Space on Wednesday, September 21, sponsored by the Wilton Public/Gregg Free Library. Fifteen people took part.

The Coyote Project promotes education and coexistence with coyotes and advocates the elimination of year-round coyote hunting.

Schandler is co-founder of NH Wildlife Coalition which advocates for predators and raises a public voice for wildlife. They are trying to convince the NH Fish and Game Department to change some of their policies.

She began with a general history of predators in the area, including bobcats and fishermen. The fisherman, she says, is in danger.

When the Europeans arrived, they cleared the forest, driving away all the big animals. Some of them, like the caribou, will never come back.

The coyote is the only dog ​​native to North America. Our version, the eastern coyote, is a product of the smaller western coyote, interbred with the northern red world. DNA analysis, she said, confirmed the wolf’s heritage. Their color can vary from white to black, with some larger individuals resembling wolves.

Coyotes live in family units with a breeding pair. They mate for life, self-regulate pack size, and are very territorial. A coyote lives three to four years and 2/3 of the females never reproduce. The mortality rate among the young is 50 to 75%.

The coyotes came with the reforestation of the east, she said. The eastern form lives east of the Great Lakes and in Canada.

Schadler began his studies with wolves in the Midwest. Moving to NH, she acquired a sheep farm that had been continuously ravaged by coyotes. She decided to coexist. By improving the fences and keeping the lambs indoors at night, she says, she has never lost a sheep.

“Neat, tight fencing, and maybe a dog, will protect the livestock. Electric mesh fencing will protect free-range chickens.

The hunt will not rid the area of ​​coyotes, she said. They tried the west for a hundred years using every method imaginable. “You can’t get rid of it. Adapt and protect your pets and livestock and be aware.

The Coyote Project recommends closing the hunting season during the period when the puppies are in their den, in April and May. They are also asking farmers not to cut hay until the end of June.

Coyotes are scavengers as well as predators, she said. If a hunter empties his deer in the woods, there are probably coyotes waiting for him to leave. Their main diet is rodents – mice, chipmunks, squirrels – but they also eat nuts and berries, and whatever else they can find. Cats are common prey. So keep them overnight.

“People are not on their menu” she pointed out, although there is occasionally an animal that attacks a person, usually to protect the pups or the territory.

“Killing coyotes increases litter size to compensate”, Schadler said. “It’s better to keep the small packages.”

She pointed out that the coyotes have no impact on the deer herd, although they do take a fawn, many are sick or injured deer. “We have a lot of deer.” Predators regulate deer herds.

Although a coyote can breed with a domestic dog, these crosses usually do not live together due to a genetic difference. There are very few shy dogs.

“So take care of yourself” she said, and learn to live with them. “They are beautiful animals.”

The poor boy was just taking a nap.

I’m sure that’s what nightmares in nature are made of.

These animals live every day in search of food and try not to get caught by anything else.

Getting peace of mind while sleeping is probably difficult for many species.

However, predators, especially those at the larger end, generally need not worry during these times. There just aren’t many creatures looking to attack when you’re near the top of the food chain.

In many areas, this would be the case for a coyote. A fairly medium sized animal averaging around 30 pounds and quite fast they really don’t have to worry.

Wolves, bears, cougars… that’s about it, and coyotes are found in every state in the country (except Hawaii). The same cannot be said of the aforementioned predators.

However, there is a predator in every eye…people.

This coyote was caught missing in a farmer’s field.

The video shows a man walking towards the singing dog sleeping between two rows of corn. When the man approaches, you are almost surprised that the coyote does not move at all.

This isn’t your typical encounter…usually these things run away from people as fast as they can.

The man comes within reach and begins tickling the yote with an old corn stalk.

He still doesn’t move. So the man decides to talk.

In a fraction of a second, the coyote opens its eyes, sees what is above it and flies away as fast as lightning.

Talk about a wild revival for the old dog.

A fourth coyote has been killed in south central Burlington as the city continues to deal with unprovoked attacks on people.

And two wildlife groups question whether the City is handling things the best way possible.

Coyote Watch Canada and the Fur-Bearers, two environmental activist groups, believe these encounters were preventable and that killing coyotes will not address the root causes currently present in the community.

As early as 2014, Coyote Watch Canada reached out to the City of Burlington about issues related to wildlife feeding, attractants, and preventing negative encounters for residents.

They say hundreds of hours of field investigation and mitigation exposed wildlife feeding at multiple sites, but the city has taken no action to resolve those locations. Many of these places are still hotspots today.

In 2017, The Fur-Bearers and Coyote Watch Canada sent a letter to council, highlighting the urgent need to address chronic wildlife feeding in city parks.

“The following year, representatives from both organizations conducted investigations of known wildlife feeding sites to find that again none of these histories had been addressed, said Michael Howie, director of communications. for The Fur Bearers.

Footage of food left for wildlife in the same area where recent negative encounters occurred was discussed with the city in May 2022, according to Howie.

“Feeding wildlife changes animal behavior. Food rewards are commonplace for dog trainers. Rewarding a targeted behavior with food will result in continued manifestations of that behavior. The chronic feeding of wildlife, and in particular coyotes, has taught wildlife to approach people expecting a food reward.

In a 2018 letter to council, it was noted that squirrels, chipmunks, waterfowl and other animals, all of which generally keep their distance from humans, follow residents into parks.

“That this behavior was also taught to coyotes is not surprising and was entirely preventable.”

The City is now considering stronger enforcement of food-related bylaws and allocating more resources to the issue.

“We commend them for these proactive measures and hope they will be prioritized in their response strategy policy going forward. That said, killing coyotes in Burlington (especially when there is no publicly available evidence that coyotes killed so far have been involved in negative encounters) will not change the human behavior causing these issues Immediate field investigations and proactive actions that provide residents with information on best practices regarding properties wildlife-proofing; the importance of reporting feed to the City with tracking results; and understanding seasonal milestones for canids are fundamental and essential foundations for countering lethal reactions.

Coyote Watch Canada is an all-volunteer non-profit, community-based wildlife organization that promotes positive human-wildlife experiences with a focus on conservation, community outreach, education, research and conflict resolution. .

The Fur-Bearers is a non-partisan charity, founded in 1953, that protects fur-bearing animals through conservation, advocacy, research and education.

A woman hit a coyote with her car, impaling it in the grille and seriously injuring it, and drove to her Lake County home without noticing the coyote was lodged in her car Sunday morning.

Flint Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation, a Barrington-based nonprofit, said the coyote was hit around 5 a.m. Sunday.

He was alert but shows signs of internal injuries.

He also suffered serious injuries to his right hind leg after being dragged into the grille of a car.

A woman driving hit the coyote, drove home with it in the grille of her car and entered her home, according to Flint Creek Wildlife.

A Lake County sheriff’s deputy knocked on the door of the driver’s house at 7:30 a.m. after neighbors reported a live coyote stuck in the grille of his car.

Lake County Animal Control responded, removed the coyote from the car’s grille and brought it to Flint Creek Wildlife for handling.

“Many thanks to Lake County Animal Control, the Lake County Sheriff and neighbors who reported the poor coyote stuck in the grille of the car,” the organization said.

Flint Creek Wildlife said it had a similar situation years ago with a coyote that was hit by a car and also lodged in the grille.

The man went to work with the coyote in the grille of his car without noticing that he had hit him.

When he arrived at work, his colleagues told him that there was a fox, which turned out to be a coyote, in the grille of his car.

Waukegan Animal Control extracted him and brought him to Flint Creek Wildlife for care.

The coyote, nicknamed Vern, had suffered three leg fractures and undergone extensive rehabilitation, but made a full recovery.

“Please always stop when you hit an animal or if you think you might have hit something!” says Flint Creek wildlife.

It certainly wasn’t the start Kansas Wesleyan wanted in their matchup against rival Bethany Swedes.

After a stunning 30-24 loss to Bethel a week earlier, the No. 18 KWU wanted to get out of the gate fast against a young and winless Bethany side. But a fumble into Bethany territory on the first drive of the game preceded a 72-yard drive from the Swedes that resulted in a touchdown and a 6-0 deficit after 8½ minutes of the game.

“It was definitely an eye opener for us because we came out a bit flat and we really need to step it up, said tailback Tyler Boston (JR/Dixon, Calif.). “So after that, we really scaled things up from there.”

Indeed, they did, and Boston played a key role.

The Coyotes (3-1) scored on their next possession and never looked back in a 49-6 Kansas Conference win Saturday night at JRI Stadium at the Graves Family Sports Complex. It was their eighth straight win over Bethany and 10th in 11 games.

Boston, a transfer from Shasta College (California), rushed for a team-best 96 yards on 15 carries as KWU shredded Bethany’s defense for 602 total yards — 343 rushing and 259 passing. Tony White (SR/Cincinnati, Ohio) threw for 222 yards and three touchdowns and also rushed for 64 yards and a score while Paden Hazuga (SR/San Diego, Calif.) caught five passes for 94 yards and two affected.

Defensively, the Coyotes held the Swedes to under-2 rushing yards and 202 total yards.

Boston said the loss to Bethel was heartbreaking – the Threshers scored the game-winning touchdown with 27 seconds left.

“It hit right in the heart, but it hit where it needed to be hit and allowed us to focus on how we need to continue the season the way we want it to,” he said. “We struggled a bit last week in the passing game and the running game, so we were just trying to bounce back and make something of ourselves.”

KWU coach Matt Myers was happy with how his team bounced back.

“I was happy; I was happy with the way the week went, I’m happy with tonight,” he said. “It’s a good win, I don’t care what you do. When you beat someone 49-6 and hold them down (minus-2) yards, it’s a good night.”

Wesleyan went for 68 yards in 11 plays for the game-clinching touchdown — White hitting Justin Clutterbuck with a 3-yard pass with 2:52 left in the first quarter.

White then ran 8 yards for a touchdown on the third play of the second quarter and KWU led 14-6. White threw a 16-yard pass to Hazuga with 8:56 left in the half for a 21-6 lead and it stayed that way until intermission.

Nick Allsman (SO/Belleville, Kan.) rushed 8 yards for a touchdown with 8:59 left in the third quarter and Mark Benjamin (SO/Houston, Texas) rushed 33 yards for a 5:40 left in the the same quarter, giving the Coyotes a 35-6 lead they took in the fourth quarter.

KWU added two touchdowns in the fourth quarter – a 30-yard pass from White to Hazuga and a 12-yard run from D’Heaven Domena (FR/Charlotte, NC) with 4:43 left.

Boston, a native of Dixon, Calif., ran with power and good balance that he attributes to his years as a track athlete and wrestler.

“As I come off an obstacle my toe hits or I get off balance and I have to be able to keep them going full speed,” he said.

Boston said the Coyotes are focused on themselves and their performance during the week.

“It’s about focusing on ourselves and playing our game instead of playing at someone else’s level,” he said. “That’s our main objective and it will be our main objective for the rest of the season.”

Allsman finished with 87 rushing yards on 14 carries and Benjamin 61 on 11 attempts. Drevon Macon (JR/Los Angeles, Calif.) caught seven passes for 74 yards as eight different Coyotes caught.

Myers praised White for bouncing back from a tough outing against Bethel. He was 20 of 27 with an interception against Bethany.

“Tony is one of those guys if he goes out there and rips it with confidence he’ll be fine,” he said. “It’s our job to make sure he does that, he’s confident and feels it and delivers the ball to the pitch. When he does that and combines that with his legs, he’s very good. He’s a good player and he will continue to improve as the season progresses.”

Bethany quarterbacks Alec Giragosian and Peyton Mainolfi combined 15 of 30 passes for 135 yards and two interceptions — Jordan Dupre (JR/Little Elm, Texas) and Malik’Khari Mullens with KWU picks.

“We didn’t give up and that’s what we wanted,” Myers said. “We fixed a few angles with our defensive front. That’s what we expect, we expect negative gains at zero yards – get the offense behind the sticks (first down). That’s when where you win football matches.”

KWU takes on Saint Mary (1-3, 1-2 KCAC) next Saturday starting at 1 p.m. at Leavenworth. The Spiers lost to Friends 38-20 on Saturday night in Wichita.
