    Check out the story on MSNBC about the coyote that just strolled into a DOWNTOWN sandwich shop, looked around and then just laid down in the cooler. City animal control says they capture several every year.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
