Camilla H. Fox, Founder and Executive Director of Project Coyote, will present the Collegiate Peaks Forum Series Lecture “Wild Things: Coexisting with North America’s Native Carnivores” at 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 27, at the Buena Vista Community Center, 715 E. Main St. The lecture is free to the public and refreshments will be served.
The latest depredations of San Francisco’s coyote population, having deprived a family of its beloved shih tzu, revived calls to rid the city of the predators. But barring unprecedented assistance from the Acme Corp., whose products have proved particularly dangerous to the species, there is little reason or hope for evicting the wily coyote from its urban dens.
The fatal coyote attack on a small dog at the front door of a San Francisco home has prompted a raging debate on social media and in public forums about allowing wild predators to remain in the city.
