Cut and Clear
I frequent the Chaska area, to see my significant other:), and much more often now, than in the past, we seem to see much cayotes. Well we both spoke to other community members about the situation; an apparent increase in the cayote population, and someone took our concerns (the community) to the City of Chaska. General feedback from people that live in Chaska was that they did not want to have to even see cayotes at all, and wanted an animal control center to take care of the escalating problem. There seems to be a slew of developmental projects in the Chaska area, which includes building of strip malls, housing projects and changing so much of the infrastructure that there is a huge loss of the natural vegetative landscape in Chaska. With all this removal of habitat and building, it is no wonder why these cayotes are being displaced into residential areas. If there were a way for the animals to be primary concern before initiating any kind of mass deforestation, and instead captured and rehabitated in a similar and just as suitable environment, the community would not have to share a living environment with cayotes, nor would the animals themselves be in a cruel situation. I personally think the city should stop developers from cutting any more trees, until the more important matter of finding new homes for the animals are addressed.
