Letter To The Editor: Coyotes

Dear Editor,

Our neighborhood here on Sullivan’s Island has really been going downhill since the new neighbors moved in. I’m speaking, of course, of The Coyotes.

They’re obnoxious, rude, our dogs and cats hate them, they leave a mess everywhere they go, and the just don’t fit in in our community. But instead of shunning them, as they should, some islanders are welcoming them with open arms and showing them full Lowcountry hospitality.

In fact, some are leaving their garbage and recycling bins overflowing, and leaving garbage bags lying on the ground. It’s like they set out an all-you-can-eat buffet for The Coyotes.

But if you do that, the whole pack of them will think they can show up at your house for a free meal anytime they want, and you’ll never get rid of them. So keep your garbage under control. Ask for a second bin if you need to.

Let’s make sure The Coyotes know they’re not welcome on Sullivan’s Island.

Fred Wszolek

    Let us not forget that dogs also hunt and kill cats. Many, many cats have been killed by dogs which are running loose or when the dog is confined to yards, killed cats who wandered into their yards, not realizing the danger. Dogs have also killed people, not because they are hungry but because it is fun for them. Now, I know that all dogs do not kill cats and people but some do…………………

    The Coyotes are killing to survive and they do not know the difference, if there is one, between cats and rats. Yes, I am a cat owner which is kept in the house at all times. And, I love him and would never want him hurt in any way.

    Our beloved dog Ziggy, an 8 lbs Papillon appears to have been killed and eaten by a coyote on Friday morning about 5:00am. We found nothing but a large amount of his fur down in the woods behind our house.

    Please be careful with your small pets and don’t let them outside unattended.
