More than once when I've done my early morning walks in the dark, a coyote has brushed by my leg on the way to a snack. It's unnerving.
My friends in Marin County, CA (just on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge), home of multi million dollar houses, have chickens. I live in Chicago suburbs and can see corn fields from my bedroom, but can't have them here. Really??!!
