Are they really that stupid? Coyotes as are all wild animals creatures of opportunity. The go after the easiest prey. I do not know how many times cities have brought in wild animals to control another species and it turned into a disaster.

How do you best to tackle this year’s flu season is the ongoing debate about the value—or risk, as some believe—of getting a flu shot, as well as the threat level brought on by the lingering H1N1 virus that captured headlines last year.
But somewhere beneath all that is the emergence of a new flu-season talking point coming forth from research conducted by the likes of Dr. Marvin Hausman, M.D., the CEO of Total Nutraceutical Solutions.
What these researchers are finding is that taking vitamin D, particularly D3, can significantly boost our bodies’ innate immunity against influenza—a clinical fact not mentioned by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in its public-service-announcement flu-shot reminders.
Further, as Hausman points out, this power of D is so obscure to consumers, they have no idea how much they are lacking in the vitamin.
“In the U.S. alone,” says Hausman, “it has been estimated that, in the winter, during the height of flu season, 90 percent of the population is deficient in Vitamin D. Even in the summer, when people are out in the sun, the population still remains 70 percent deficient.”
Dr. Hausman can not elaborate on the remarkable benefits of vitamin D enough, not just as a weapon against influenza, but also against a number of other much more threatening diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease, numerous inflammatory diseases and more—even cancer!
More importantly, Hausman can offer the key to increasing our vitamin D intake through the consumption of one of nature’s most underestimated superfoods—the common mushroom.
As an unmatched authority on this potent fungus—earning him the nickname of “Dr. Mushroom” throughout his profession—Many people ignore the untapped nutritional potential mushrooms hold, and the ways in which this amazing healthy food can keep you healthy.

Captain Samuel Nicholas formed two battalions of Continental Marines on 10 November 1775 in Philadelphia as naval infantry. Since then, the mission of the Marine Corps has evolved with changing military doctrine and American foreign policy. The Marine Corps has served in every American armed conflict and attained prominence in the 20th century when its theories and practices of amphibious warfare proved prescient and ultimately formed the cornerstone of the Pacific campaign of World War II. By the mid-20th century, the Marine Corps had become the dominant theorist and practitioner of amphibious warfare. Its ability to rapidly respond on short notice to expeditionary crises gives it a strong role in the implementation and execution of American foreign policy.
