    Watch where you're going!

    The traffic signs are enforced by bears in Asheville, NC.

    Yep, At our Reno home, we often see coyotes walking down the streets at night. We have seem them right in front of our house as well as in DOWNTOWN Reno.

    We often see them in the daytime too, but at night is when we see them in unusual places, such as downtown Reno, not that far from crowds of people.

    We saw one in a Safeway parking lot one night. The Reno area has built up a lot in last few years, however, we are part to blame too, as we bought a house there a few years back.

    Well, we are human too.

    Experts say that there is now no city in the U.S. that doesn't have a coyote population.

    Amazingly adaptable animal. I have read that 100 years ago the coyote was found only in the south and southwest but that today they are found in nearly every state.

    The coyote's spread is almost matched by the possum and the armadillo. Both are far north of their habitual grounds, and still moving, although a cold snap like we're now having will thin them out.

    Here are a few little known facts about the coyote and explains why they spread so fast:

    Today, coyotes ARE in every state except for Hawaii. They often travel more than 100 miles per night. 40% of their diet is vegetable matter. Because of these things, they can go just about anywhere.

    And another reason to keep your cat (and small dogs) indoors. They can and do eat them!

    More than 100 miles per night. That IS a long way.
