This letter is twofold – to warn the residents of the Woodcreek subdivision in Fairfield of a coyote epidemic killing outdoor cats and to thank the Solano County Animal Care Services and Humane Animal Services for their kindness and compassion in helping my family find closure in the loss of our cat.
The shelter keeps a book on animals that are “dead on arrival.” This book gives a description of the animal and the street where it was picked up. There also is a website for lost animals. These are wonderful community services that I knew nothing about, and I’m sure would be a service to many families wondering where their beloved pet might be.
The city needs to post warnings along the creek, which is used by many walking and biking. Until we have normal rainfall, this is a dangerous place. The coyotes are out both in the daytime and at night.
