Los Angeles County officials announced a plan to evict the animals and evaluate whether traps or lethal force would be used. But as media coverage of the coyotes expanded last week, animal-welfare groups petitioned Glendale’s mayor—who lives next door—to keep the coyotes alive and unharmed. The house could be demolished within days, and for now the problem may have resolved itself: after last week's commotion, the coyotes haven't been seen back in the neighborhood.
