Guard your pets because coyotes rule Twin Lakes | Letters

In response to the president of the Twin Lakes HOA article:

The one thing you neglected to mention about your "wonderful" community is that it is infested with a large population of predatory coyotes that your residents have seen roaming around in the neighborhood streets, day and night.

It is, in fact, a high kill zone for these residents and their beloved pets. I have personally spoken to at least five residents that have loss their cats. One had a dog that had slipped out of the door and wandered off the homeowner's property only to have been viciously attacked by a coyote.

Take a drive around the various Twin Lakes divisions and witness for yourself how many "lost pet" fliers you will see posted on various streets. I very recently came across two myself from residents looking for their missing cats.

After having spoken with one resident in particular, I can honestly say, not everyone is aware of the fact that these predatory animals are indeed right in their own backyard.

Also, new people who are interested in moving into the Twin Lakes area are not always going to be aware of this particularly disturbing fact as well. I think more awareness needs to be made in order to warn these residents that just because it is a beautiful area to live in, there is a dark underside. It is not a pet friendly place because the coyotes rule. Just ask all the people whose beloved pet companions went missing. Myself included!
