Doesn't surprise me at all... Here's the story... http://m.ocregister.com/articles/coyote-662894-dad-scared.html
I live in a neighboring community in orange county, and we have coyotes that are completely fearless of humans roaming around on an almost nightly basis.
A few months ago I encountered two on a late night walk... One of which just stood about 10 feet from me and just stared at me. I thought I was going to have to drop it... But it finally trotted off to eat some neighbors dog.
Part of the problem is that no one is allowed to do anything about them. When the cities contract with companies to deal with them a bunch of anti's complain that we live on their land and crap...
