Was a coyote sending a calculated message to tri-state area humans this weekend when he snatched a small dog out of a backyard and presumably tore it apart with his sharp teeth? I’m not a coyote and I don’t profess to understand how they think, but if you held one to my head my answer would be, “Yes, this is possible.”
Call of the Wildman is a popular show about a wild-critter trapper on Animal Planet. It's also totally fake, with animals trucked-in and treated brutally. And Mother Jones, the magazine that first exposed Wildman's dark side, has new photo evidence that it screwed with some poor caged coyote for ratings.
