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.

New Yorkers can sleep well again, knowing that a coyote seen roaming the city has been tranquilized and captured. However, I confess that I am not really all that relieved.

It's like I live in the third world, but it's the Hollywood Hills. My little Jerry, all four pounds of him, were in the mouth of a coyote so big, my son said the beast was six-feet-tall when it stood on its hind legs to jump over our gate.

This winter, wildlife in the northern Rocky Mountains will likely be terrorized by a swarm of armed humans elbowing and off-roading each other out of the way in a frenzied race to see who can kill the most animals in 72 hours during Idaho's "Predator Derby."

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.

Any decent-minded person agrees that purposely wounding a wild animal so that it can be tortured by a pack of dogs is a blood sport, akin to animal fighting. It should be illegal, and the people who do it should be held accountable.

Every time the British guy said the word "deer," the movie showed footage of elk. If the film's director doesn't know a deer from an elk, why should I trust him to get anything else right?

Coyotes provide many ecosystem services that benefit people including their control of smaller predators, disease-carrying rodents and jackrabbits, which compete with domestic livestock for available forage.

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."

Until a year ago, wildlife in the 'burbs meant no more to me than a stray mouse or two, or an occasional family of wild turkeys. But I'm carrying a flashlight on my night dog walks these days. And keeping the cat indoors.

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.
