    I've seen quite a few in the Springs. I used to see them all the time in Conifer. Cool animals.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    Whole place is infested with them. That's why I always ride with a gun and a knife.

    Is this unusual for people? I had one in my back yard after the last snow. And I live smack in the middle of the SW suburbs...

    I haven't heard any in a while, they must be down in the 'burbs eating bacon and enjoying the warm weather but back in Nov. there were about 9-10 of them chasing each other around in my front yard. Must have been rival factions or something.

    Update:

    Update: Nope, I was wrong. After some research I found out they were chocolate labs, no coyotes in Colorado after all. Sorry for the confusion. SSV is ridable, thanks for your time! *

    Funny that Ban'd mentioned wolves, though. RMNP is working on installing motion sensing cameras so they can get a photo. Lots of folks have reported seeing wolves in the park. The Park Service feels strongly that wolves are moving south from Wyoming but they want evidence to be sure.

    A local rancher down by Lyons claims that he's seen a few down here, too.

    Ya know I have (honestly) seen two of the biggest damn coyotes in my entire life in the last month on seperate occasions on the F2F. Their coloring was spot on coyote so I doubt that either were wolves but seriously, it made me think.

    The first one was next to the F2F, up near the stables @ PVR, the other near Long's. They're out there...

    I got a glimpse of one over on the Grand Lake side of the park one morning right before sunrise. We were doing some backcountry camping up on the East Inlet, and we came around a corner that opened to a clearing with a stream running through it.

    We were probably at least 1/10th of a mile, maybe a 1/5th, away from it. It took notice immediately and was gone in a few seconds. Tall, lanky and dark. Way too big to be a coyote.

    The Coyotes in Northern Colorado Springs are around, usually if a domestic cat gets out at night they end up as a Coyote snack. That or the Foxes get them.

    Up in Monument see lots of Bear scat (so they are around), seen Lion tracks and heard them in the distance, Wild Turkey gangs (flocks), but they aren't to scary, Coyotes and Foxes (lots of them).

    And of course roaming gangs of born agains! The Brother Colby and Brother Cheddar, raise the board for Cheese's! Those gangs are always trying to save the Infucable gang!

    Nope, these were rogue coyotes...they used the koolaid instead...blueberry splash. No pink crap for them. Real coyotes wear blue...

    Will some vinegar keep them away or do I have to tell them I'm taking them to the vet?

    Coyotes, humph! I wish I had such a simple problem. My yard is infested with these savage, aggressive creatures, and they have fangs! This one is making a move on my bike:



    I don't know how to get rid of them.

    There's a big noisy pack in the field behind my house along the creek.
    My dogs and I always holler at them on our night ride, but we go no closer.
    My boys will chase them off if they come into the neighborhood though, it's like a turf battle.

    Still rather run into a pack of crazy mutts than one psycho kitty, thats just me.

    So yeah, Coyotes are everywhere in Colorado, but harmless.
    the drugs made me realize it's not about the drugs
