Arizona Joins Other States to Stop Competitive Hunting: Illinois Shoots Itself

Arizona has banned all urban wildlife killing contests for coyotes, bobcats, foxes and other animals, joining a growing number of states taking action to stop these gruesome events in which participants compete for money and/or prizes for killing the most and/or largest animals. The Arizona ban, proposed in June, was voted on by Arizona’s Fish…

Bring Luna the Coyote Home; Domestic Violence and Pets on WGN Radio

For those who haven’t followed the story of Tomi Trancheta and her four coyotes, Tomi offers an update on the lone surviving coyote, named Luna, on my WGN Radio Steve Dale’s Pet World show. Listen HERE as Tomi and I first explain that he animals, which she had proper licensing and rescued from a very…

Bring Luna the Coyote Home

Regarding the four coyotes removed from the home of licensed rehabber Tomi Tranchita which I’ve been covering, on Sunday she posted, “Luna made it to Indiana today. She’s doing so much better. Fresh air, ground beneath her feet, lots of sniffing and looking at new friends. Some stimulation for her FINALLY after the worse 5…

Luna Coyote May be Dying

STORY UPDATE: If a Governor can pardon a criminal why not a coyote? And this coyote did nothing wrong. Tomi Tranchita pleaded guilty in court, as a part of a plea bargain….Guilty for not paying a freakin’ $25 license.

#Bring Luna Home

Bring Luna the coyote home. In some ways this is the saddest story I’ve ever covered. And, so far, at least some public officials are investigating – others appear intimidated by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR). Tomi Tranchita bottle-fed and saved four orphaned coyotes. Now, what? She saved their lives, but now the…

Bring Luna Home: Coyotes Confiscated and Killed

Coyote, Not So Ugly

I suggest the coyote threat is not a real threat for responsible pet owners. And now, throughout much of the country it’s denning season for coyotes. Mothers are protective of their pups and eager to find food so they may out and visible more often. Also, there’s an increase in numbers of coyotes in many urban…

What Happened to Most Humane State Status?

What’s wrong with Illinois? Once the state that won awards for animal protection and for being the most humane state, no longer. I suppose, It’s one thing to get up before dawn, and to go out hunting for water fowl or deer. To stalk the quarry, and if you are lucky to shoot and kill.…

Coyote Threat: Real or Not

I suggest the coyote threat is not a real threat for responsible pet owners. I realize that it made news in Ohio when Canton, MI police say a coyote attacked and killed a man’s Bichon Frise dog at about 5 a.m. Friday, March 18.  He let his two dogs into the backyard where the attack…

Coyote Ugly

Q: A coyote attacked and killed a dog in our neighborhood. I am really very worried. What should I do? — L.M, San Diego A: If there are ever coyote sightings anywhere near you live, keep cats indoors (beneficial for cats anyway) and also don’t allow dogs in the yard without adult supervision.
