Coyotes, Water Supplies, and an Elegy for a Son

Coyotes have killed so many household pets in Seal Beach, the city has approved a plan to trap and kill the predators. We take a look at how coyotes thrive in urban environments and how the drought may be adding to the issue. Plus, author Edward Hirsch turned to poetry after his son died at the young age of 22; he talks to Madeleine about “Gabriel: A poem,” a 78-page elegy he wrote in his son’s memory. And we chat with the co-host of the TLDR podcast about the latest hoaxes to hit the web.
