Monkeys at the Fair

This weekend, we took the kids tot he Chester Fair in Chester, Ct. we had a great time. The majority of the rides were for the little ones, so Ryan and Connor got alot of rides in and got to see a real live pig race. Other than that we kept a low profile.

This week, we prep for preschool and kindergarten. Drum roll, please.

On another note... we saw this guy by the beach about a week or so ago... it's a Coyote out looking for a morning snack. From the way it was moving, I suspect he had a healthy skepticism about being out in the open and made tracks for the woods shortly after.

While I am thrilled to see the monkeys at the fair, I am not thrilled to see a coyote out in the open or anywhere near you or your family. Is there anything that can be done to discourage them? The bears are very busy around here, but at least they don't seem to like being around people so they move away when people come around. Are coyotes like that? I need some reassurance here:). Love, your mother, the worrier..

Coyote attacks on people are extremely rare. There have been a small number of attacks on people in the U.S. and Canada, with most of the attacks involving small children under 5 years of age. Since 3 million children are bitten by dogs every year, your small child is millions of times more likely to get hurt by the family pet than by a coyote.
