Response to Starboard Tack (Reply #29)

37. true, however

coyotes have invaded the urban centers, see Florida. In my hometown, moose and deer do the same. When I was a kid (and still some degree) pronghorn would graze off lawns in the winter. Of course mt. lions would follow them looking for food. the increase in wolf population kind of cured that (and there has been a drop in pronghorn population, not near as bad as the near extinction in the 1920s). In fact about six moths ago, some asshole poached a deer while it was grazing on a doctor's office lawn (second poached in city limits.) He was caught and charged and convicted of: no hunting licence, out of season, discharging a firearm in city limits without a good reason, wanton waste (basically wasting food, that is actually the stiff penalty most serious charge.), firing across a road (well, street) and shooting from a vehicle (not within a few exceptions).
They probably threw a few more that I'm not aware of like brandishing and public endangerment. While our county jail is cleaner and more humane than Rikers Island or Sheriff Joe's tent city, it still isn't my idea of a cool vacation spot. Oh, and the gun he used and the vehicle he drove went to auction.
