I learned some new coyote facts last night at a lecture by Dr. Robert Long, Senior Scientist at Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle.
1. If a coyote is getting too close, you can scare it away by making loud noises or surprising it.
2. It is actually not common for coyotes to eat cats or small dogs.
3. Coyotes mate for life and both parents take care of their pups.

Amanda was interviewed by her son about the upcoming launch of Wild Rescues for Bainbridge Community Broadcasting.
One night near Halloween in the pouring rain, Amanda participated in the Westsound WIldlife Shelter's Spooky Walk event. Kids and their families walk down a candle-lit forest path and get to meet wild animal ambassadors from the shelter. Amanda read some of her stories from Wild Rescues: Amazing Stories from a Wildlife Shelter.
