What's come over the coyotes in Marin County, California?
Locals describe nighttime drivers stopping on the twisting highway because coyotes were staring them down and acting like they were going to attack.
The curiously hyper-coyotes were coming close to cars, but turning away at the last moment; howling insanely while dashing off into the night.
TWO POSSIBLE REASONS
1) They are stoned on hallucinogenic mushrooms that grow in the area and are on vision quests to interact with people driving cars. (my favorite)
2) People have been feeding the coyotes from their cars, which is never a good idea for several reasons.
One of my favorite cartoon characters, Wile E. Coyote, always looked like he was loaded (at least he did to me!).
Now, I know why he never could catch up to the Road Runner. He lived in Marin County and his inventions were dreamed up after eating some magic mushrooms!
It explains a lot.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
