New projects in the works!

It’s cold out here, in the countryside, as I type this.

Our pack of local coyotes moved on a long time ago. I haven’t heard them in a year. My hopes are that they’ve found better territory. People out here don’t like coyotes.

People out here sell illegal fireworks and use guns illegally. In residential areas, in their backyards, in their fields. Someone local confided to me that “I took a shot at a coyote today and missed. Damn it.”

Justice for persecuted species like the coyote isn’t waiting in an afterlife, and it’s not going to come from the federal government. It’s here and now. Having said that, we have three new projects potentially in the works for 2018, including a documentary! A professional documentary on the horrors of coyote trapping, poisoning, hounding, and hunting, along with some pointed commentary on the outdated, cruel fur trade. A documentary to post online, and to make available for free for coyote advocates who would like to hold showings in our own communities. Watch this space.

Travels in Spain – Andalucía, Mountain Roads, Brigands and Wolves

It was very remote up here, a boulder strewn landscape assaulted by the wind and the frequent squally showers. This it seemed to me was Brigand territory and I drove on half expecting that at any moment a grizzled highwayman with a shotgun and a leather cartridge belt slung across each shoulder would step out into the road and bid me stop, relieve me of my wallet and quite likely drive off with the car.
