Coyotes on acid?
When motorists stop to avoid hitting them, the coyotes reportedly sniff around the vehicle before running away, the Pacific Sun reports.
Rabies has been ruled out since the coyote incidents have been happening for weeks and the disease would have killed them off by now, according to the Pacific Sun.
Officials have suggested two possible reasons: the coyotes have been fed by people in cars — or the coyotes have ingested the fly agaric mushroom, which is psychoactive, and are tripping.
It’s not new, but it suggests that we may have more in common with nature’s creatures than we care to admit. As we share 99 per cent of our DNA with other species, it only stands to reason that they would share our vices, but at least we have rehab.
