🤔 Aggressive Urban Coyotes or Regular L.A. County Wildlife? Poll!

We live with raccoons and opossums. Do coyotes fall into the same category? They don’t need open space, have no problems building dens close to humans, and are becoming more and more visible on our neighborhood streets. What do you think? So far, 60.7% think we need to learn to live with them, 35.7% want them gone, and 3.6% don’t care one way or the other.

📰 Here are the top stories today in Los Angeles:

1) A woman was robbed Tuesday at 11 a.m. in the parking garage at 639 South Broadway. “The robber is believed to have entered the garage from the street and waited near the elevators for the victim, whom he approached from behind with a gun in one hand.” He was later arrested and “armed guards will be stationed in that parking garage starting Friday.” (KTLA)

2) How safe is it to be in traffic with trains? We learned on Friday that there have been “78 incidents involving trains striking people or vehicles” in the L.A. metro area. Of these, 44 were deadly. Metrolink is trying to get in front of this issue by having the Sheriff’s Department “cite drivers who do not obey railroad crossing signals.” (Spectrum News 1)

3) Ridna Shkola at 4315 Melrose Avenue is helping Ukrainian child refugees stay connected to their culture and language. We learned on Friday that the school already has a long history of teaching Ukrainian American children in Los Angeles during Saturday school. Children uprooted by the Russian invasion of Ukraine have an opportunity to make friends, continue to learn their language, and regain a sense of normalcy in a foreign country. (LAist)

4) Who serves the best breakfast burrito in L.A.? As of Friday, a highly unscientific research method declared The Rooster at 8809 West Pico Boulevard the place to be. In particular, you should ask for the Rico Suave. Prove the taste testers wrong – if you can. (Eater Los Angeles)

5) Mark your calendars! On Sunday, the Japanese American National Museum at 100 North Central Avenue is launching its National Monument for the WWII Japanese American Incarceration. It is the culmination of a campaign to account for each individual who was subjected to wartime incarceration. The museum is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and visitors are requested to reserve timed tickets. “Visitors are requested to use a special Japanese hanko (stamp/seal) to leave a mark for each person in the monument as a way to honor those incarcerated during World War II.” (JANM)
