"Thanks, Nicole, but nope, we've spoken with both the Beacon police and the MTA police. We've met lots of cops while we've been "on the job"--they know exactly what we're up to and they're supportive."

"Thanks, Birdy. It'd be great if it were just about sharing food with the coyotes. In this case it's a human dismantling and removing shelters, so we're just trying to find out who and why."

Birdy commented on kara's blog post TNR Cat Feeding Stations Destroyed
"Heard on the radio that coyotes are invading towns because of the long term snow conditions. I don't know what your stations look like or what kind of food, but coyotes have been spotted cruising Beacon."
