I am an ecological restoration specialist with the city of Austin. Melissa Gaskill's article "Urban Coyotes: Meet the neighbors
" [News, May 2] is perhaps the most sensible and well-considered article on the urban coyote issue I have ever read in a journalistic-style publication. Thank you for rising above the sensationalism of schoolchildren being carried off by menacing coyotes and taking a more holistic approach. Very refreshing.
