People don't realize to leave the wild animals to survive on their own and when they help the animal it does no good. For example. If there is an injured coyote and you feel bad so you feed it then it will start coming around humans for food. Then they will euthanize the animal. Always leave the wild animal alone or call professionals.
And I know this is SUCH a foreign concept to some people, but in nature, sh** happens. Animals get hurt or sick and die, creatures eat one another, that's just how the world works. You can't save them all, nor should you really try too much as it's just interfering with the whole cycle. (Exceptions are animals who are endangered due to human influence, and of course we're going to do more for our pets, but those are domesticated and aren't part of that "ecosystem" as such anyway.) I know the hippie set who seems to feel that nature works like it does in Disney movies will disagree with me, but... yeah.
