War Pig October 29, 2019 at 1:18 am 2 years ago In areas where there are wolves, they are also an important predators of coyotes. The reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone cut back the coyote population. War Pig October 29, 2019 at 1:22 am 2 years ago As a note, I don’t think Nogg gets the credit he deserves. Yeah, he’s messed up, but the teams he picked actually did the things he chose them to do. He’s apparently a pretty good talent scout. Garth Hill October 29, 2019 at 8:47 am 2 years ago agreed. Coyoty October 29, 2019 at 2:19 am 2 years ago Too bad the chips only translate what people say, not what they mean. I assume Em-J will grow up speaking French as a primary language, because she’ll have the most exposure to Pierrot. In any case, I think she’ll need to have a primary language for chips to work with, with everyone around her speaking a different language. If she’s getting translations from everyone and doesn’t learn a language, anything she would try to say would be gibberish and untranslatable. FlySwatter October 29, 2019 at 6:58 am 2 years ago I reckon that’s the difference between a writer and a good writer: research. I had no idea about the Cougars thing. I probably would’ve ended up killing the pack with a swarm of Meerkats. (and it would have been a swarm because I didn’t research the proper term for a group of them) Kaidah October 29, 2019 at 7:57 am 2 years ago Strangely enough, a group of meerkats is called a mob. Kind of appropriate for your coyote killing idea. Coyoty October 30, 2019 at 2:01 am 2 years ago Meerkats have been shown to attack jackals. Mgnostic October 29, 2019 at 10:42 am 2 years ago We have lots of coyotes. Now, I’m wondering how many cougars are out there. Keith October 30, 2019 at 8:34 am 2 years ago We have several packs and at least one “Liars club” by the airport. 🙂 Yes, they coyotes go hang out by the airport and “talk” like town dogs. There is at least one cougar puss that our town is part of her territory. I’ve been “eyes on” a cougar tom that was just passing through…he’d have been a permanent part of the pasture if he’d gone after my livestock. Then there’s the badger who likes me, the skunks, trash pandas, whistle pigs, damnable gophers. More worried about feral cats than I am coyote or cougar. Meran October 29, 2019 at 7:44 pm 2 years ago I wonder how many cougars are needed for each area full of coyotes to still retain viability? Usually, the further one goes UP the predator chain, the lower those numbers become. (Say 1000 mice to feed 1 coyote for a week… that kind of statistic. Adding the cougar in there….) There really ~aren’t many cougars anymore. (Aren’t CARS the biggest coyote killer? Or poison set out by farmers?) Christopher John Baldwin October 29, 2019 at 7:48 pm 2 years ago by “Cougars are one of the most common (non human) predator” I meant including cars and poison. 🙂 Muzhik October 29, 2019 at 8:54 pm 2 years ago And just showing how deep the dark depths of my mind go, my thought about reading “cougars” and “coyotes” is “now we have a name for the young human males who engage with older human females. Pete Rogan October 29, 2019 at 9:15 pm 2 years ago Hm. I used to cry that I had no shoes…. ….until I met a man who could not dance. Loss is also what you make of it. Or what it makes of you, really. Depends on how you want to look at it. How Emily thinks about Ruddock especially. But Ruddock didn’t eat his own pack. Emily can’t shake the notion that she did eat her own. There’s more than one answer to these questions Pointing me in a crooked line And the less I seek my source for some definitive The closer I am to fine Coyoty October 30, 2019 at 2:10 am 2 years ago “My shoes are too tight. But it doesn’t matter, because I have forgotten how to dance.” –Londo Mollari Meran October 30, 2019 at 4:01 am 2 years ago I miss the crew of Bab5. ????
