Letter to the Editor: Coyote threats

Dear Editor:

Like your Crime Report, you should have news about the coyote threat to pets and small children both day and night.

North Downey has a long standing problem with these predators, and it is spreading south. An adult coyote was recently seen near Paramount and Imperial Highway. Its den is possibly in the Rancho Los Amigos facility.

Ignorance of the threat can be tragic for families unaware of coyotes, or thinking they are safe in their fenced yards.
