Julie Zauzmer from the Washington Post writes about the death of a Maryland man's beloved pet.
"Ireland said the coyote showed no signs of rabies. But knowing that coyotes might contract the disease, animal control officers decided to euthanize it."You know what else might contract rabies? Humans. I suppose we should kill all of them on sight as well? Or maybe we could take a good hard look at a world in which our first instinct is to destroy and eliminate, because that's likely to be far more deadly than an occasional case of rabies.
