Da' Coyotes

Coyotes have moved into Chicago. Apparently drawn from the outer fringe suburbs by plentiful food sources, the urban coyote population is up by 3000% in the last ten years. Top on the coyotes' menu: the booming population of wild babies which have overrun the city's coffee shops. As far as Smithsonian Magazine can figure, no one's complaining much.

Yeah, sure, no one's complaining yet. When it happens in Austin, the complaints don't start until you start "managing" the population of coyotes to keep the kids safe:

(and many follow-up letters to the editors...)
