In 1900 there were 100,000 cheetahs in the world. By 2006, due to loss of habitat and prey, the number of cheetahs has declined to just 12,000. That's why I founded KidsLoveAnimals.com, which is dedicated to educating kids and their families about endangered species. If you love animals, please bookmark this site. In future posts we will take you along on our personal journey to Save the Animals through our KIDSLOVEANIMALS.com DVD series.

Coyote in New York's Central Park

Photo borrowed from Sun-Sentiniel.com

A coyote was discovered running around Central Park in New York City last Sunday, and led police on a three day chase (see additional photos and learn more about this story at Sun-Senteniel.com).

Police shot the coyote with a tranquilizer dart on Wednesday, and then transported the animal to an undisclosed location in upstate New York, where he will be released within days.

I echo David's thoughts, Paul. Thanks for the explanation of your trip to Africa! that must've been wonderful. I hope you get to go back again, and as my contribution to the dream, where can I buy your video?

You've probably mentioned it somewhere, but I can't seem to find it now.

Sindy thanks you for your compliment. She knows she's lovely too!

Take care and have a great weekend.

Hi Val,

Thanks for your interest in our DVD. It is currently available at Amazon.com in North America. You can also purchase it directly from us through kidsloveanimals.com. However, the DVD is currently programed for NTSC/Region 1 DVD players. We hope that in another year that we can offer a PAL version for our friends in Europe, Africa and Asia. One way around this is if you have a computer that also plays NTSC DVDs.

Thanks for your support!

oh woe! My computer does allow me to play NTSC but only for a limited number of times, because I have to change the settings & you're only allowed to do that 4 times.

Guess I'll have to wait until you have a PAL / Region 2 version available.

Till next time
Val

Hi Paul,
My west end neighbourhood has had a few coyote families in the last ten years. We had "coyote alerts" at school up until about 4 years ago, as the coyotes living in a large park nearby would sometimes be attracted by the garbage and be bold enough to wander onto the school property. It gave a whole new meaning to the blackboard jungle.:)
Good to see this lovely one made it out of NYC safely.

Cheers,
AM
