No Wonder Coyotes Were Aggressive

Our readers wrote letters throughout 1992, expressing their viewpoints on a variety of issues. Here are condensed versions of some of those letters to help us remember the events that mattered to Orange County readers this past year. We would like to thank the readers who took the time to share their views, and we look forward to hearing from them and others in 1992.

I note that the courageous trapper refers to the fact that the coyotes exhibited "extremely aggressive" behavior while in the traps prior to being (put) to death. Well, no kidding. The story conveniently omits the fact that they are using leg traps. You know, those jagged steel-jawed things that often cause the trapped animal to chew off its own leg to escape the agony and fear of entrapment.
