CALL OF THE WILD
There have been reports of coyotes in our neck of the woods, but from Pennsylvania comes confirmed reports of attacks by the animals. Two baby alpacas were killed by coyotes and six peacocks slaughered by the critters that seem to have a taste for the exotic. Coyotes up to 80 pounds have been reported, although the average male weighs half that. Residents are more concerned about numbers than size with 20-30 coyotes reported lurking around in some areas.
