Just paint a tunnel on a wall. They'll run headfirst right into it.

Release the Roadrunner!

/the coyotes will all be dead within a few days
//or at least have chased the Roadrunner out into the desert and away from populated areas

What they need to do is get all the people out of San Francisco so they stop encroaching on this beautiful animal's natural territory and let Mother Nature repopulate the peninsula as it was intended to be. I suggest shipping all the people out to the Farralon Islands and letting the Great Whites eat all the stupid farkers.

dumbest question ever, and a threadjack.

is the coyote that fights with the road runner actually named wile e (wiley)? or is he different than the one that talks and farks with bugs bunny?

Why do big fat people I see at Walmart wear so much looney tunes schwag?

Animal Care posted a video on YouTube of an off-leash Rottweiler, filmed by his owner, harassing two coyotes apparently protecting a den.

Just another example of San Franciscan's harassing breeders.

Tough choice facing the cyclists out there. Continue to be self-entitled asshats and possibly ruin the entire environment for coyotes, or is that behavior only acceptable when it is mere humans they are making life tough for?

Looney Tunes gear has been en vogue with the white trash & wigger demographic since at least the early 1990's.

Yeah, that was pretty farked up. I guess it just goes to show that the "HURRRR HURRRRR - lookit them skeered critters, so funnay" attitude is too common among human beings, and isn't something unique to rednecks, trailer trash or whatever.

Just bring in the LA Kings -- Coyotes seem to be no match for them.

Just came to say that David Powers, from the article, is a dumbarse.

"I'm not fond of wildlife. This is as wild as I want it to get," said David Powers, who was walking Honda, a mix between a Rottweiler and German shepherd, near the barricaded restroom one recent afternoon. "This is a city. They belong in the country."

Andrew Wiggin: dumbest question ever, and a threadjack.

They are the same one, I think. Wile E. Coyote vs Road Runner is the original version and he only talked via signs. He has also appeared with Bugs Bunny in later cartoons and could talk.

If I'm remembering right, he had a genteel kind of voice.

Why is it that so many people are proud of walking their dogs off leash, especially in a public park in a major city?

A loose dog is a dead dog, what is the problem with putting your dog on a leash?

A few years back, there were locals butchering stray dogs in the GG park. Police caught some people near the hanging carcases, including a woman who had a wad of hundred dollar bills in her purse. They weren't doing it because they were poor, but for the meat that they were used to in their old country.

"Wile E. Coyote (also known simply as "The Coyote") and The Road Runner are a duo of cartoon characters from a series of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons. The characters (a coyote and Greater Roadrunner) were created by animation director Chuck Jones in 1948 for Warner Bros., while the template for their adventures was the work of writer Michael Maltese. The characters star in a long-running series of theatrical cartoon shorts (the first 16 of which were written by Maltese) and occasional made-for-television cartoons.

In each episode, instead of animal senses and cunning, Wile E. Coyote uses absurdly complex contraptions (sometimes in the manner of Rube Goldberg) and elaborate plans to pursue his quarry.

The Coyote appears separately as an occasional antagonist of Bugs Bunny in five shorts from 1952 to 1963: Operation: Rabbit, To Hare Is Human, Rabbit's Feat, Compressed Hare, and Hare-Breadth Hurry. While he is generally silent in the Coyote-Road Runner shorts, he speaks with a refined accent in these solo outings (except for Hare-Breadth Hurry), introducing himself as "Wile E. Coyote - super genius", voiced with an upper-class, cultured English accent by Mel Blanc.[1] The Road Runner vocalizes only with a signature sound, "Beep, Beep", recorded by Paul Julian, and an occasional tongue noise.[2]

To date, 48 cartoons have been made featuring these characters (including the three CGI shorts), the majority by Chuck Jones."

Yes, I stole that from Wikipedia.
FYI: Here in Ohio coyotes are an invading non-native species that started appears here several years ago. They have caused damage to native fox populations and as a rule should be shot on sight.

He's also essentially the same even when he's Ralph the wolf fighting Sam the sheepdog.

i'm fairly sure i read somewhere that rr/c was created to make fun of the original tom and jerry cartoons.

Why don't we just turn loose the homeless living in the park and let them hunt and eat coyote? That's tasty meat right there...

Just like venture capitalists - he bought a small company, used that small company to take out massive piles of loans which he paid himself millions from, then let the company go into default and let his gain be society's loss. Then he could buy himself all the ACME products, and lobbyists to weaken all those pesky environmental regulations which could get in the way of his wanton destruction of the desert, that he wants!

Here in southern Nevada there is dog crap on all the trails in Red and Valley of Fire. Although there are coyotes here, there either aren't enough or they aren't aggressive enough to deter these irresponsible dog owners.

/I carry a gun when hiking. More for protection against the two-legged animal than anything else

TriMet's fare inspectors encountered this coyote on a downtown-bound Red Line train at Cascades Station. He was cited for not having proof of payment and validated fare, and removed from the train.

Velvet Underground, Coyote

Coyote goes to the top of the hill
Doin' the things the coyote's will
Staring at the sky, at the moon
You know he starts to howl

Coyote goes to the mountain top
Looks over down at the river, says "what a drop"
No tame dogs is gonna take my born

You have to be a farking moron to let large predators loose in a city. I never saw such a bunch of dumbass biatches until I moved to California. I grew up in the Rockies and coyotes weren't tolerated and were shot on sight. In LA they actually eat dogs off leashes and a group even attacked a horse rider in Griffith Park. With a steady diet of cats and poodles the local OC coyotes are excetionally large and wouldn't have any problem with grade schoolers but the local authorities still refuse to eradicate the problem. Despite a number of joggers and mountain bikers killed through out the state by lions there is still a state ban on hunting them too.

Ralph has a red nose. Wile E.'s is black. No lie. Check it out.

I call shenanigans on the whole story. Any coyote in Golden Gate Park is going to have a contact high so wicked, he couldn't possibly attack anything. OTOH, maybe they have the munchies...?
