Coyotes were spotted along the Seine River in Southdale Sunday.

The two coyotes in winter regalia observing the photographer with curious and polite interest (Having a Howl in Southdale, Jan. 6) remind us the riparian river corridors are home to deer, rabbits, foxes and a myriad of birds. Now we have coyotes visiting and following the trail of the deer and rabbits.

Humans continue to diminish wildlife environments by encroaching on their habitat with logging, mining and cottage-expansion interests. Now we see our urban environments are enticing and welcoming these very fine animals into our city because of their need for greater wildlife territory.

To have this beautiful photograph on the front page of the Winnipeg Free Press makes me marvel at the beauty of these wild creatures seldom observed by urban citizens.
