This morning, I was struck by the irony of a young woman walking a dog while wearing coyote fur on the collar of her Canada Goose jacket (yes, coyotes and domesticated dogs are part of the same Canis family). Although I let blissful ignorance prevail, I imagined a conversation.

I can live with rabbits in my garden, even if I don't like them. Let's do all we can to people whose homes are in or around national parks and protected areas, to live with wildlife that they would likewise prefer to live without.

What is perhaps most disquieting about the photograph is the vigilante feel that echoes a lynch mob -- dehumanize, vilify, and murder. Wolves are now reviled and persecuted in a land where they once roamed wild and free prior to European colonization.

"The Mule Deer Wars." That's what I've come to call a tenacious western wildlife controversy. It began in the 1990s, when state wildlife managers started reporting lower mule deer populations. "If mule deer herds are in poor health, the land is in poor health."

But by now the sun was cutting across the tops of the hills with that last and best of the golden light, and it was pretty much too late for snakes. I took a breath, sat down on a rock. Maybe I'd stay and watch the moonrise. And then I saw the scat, right there, and it didn't look like a coyote.
