That is exciting, they are beautiful creatures! But you be careful, Ms. Annette, there was a story on the news just this morning (all the way up here) about more bobcats, cougars and coyotes being spotted in California neighborhoods.
Sorry for your bunnies, though, they're pretty cute, too!
When I see coyotes in/around my apiary, it's because they are hunting opossum or maybe even the skunks. My cuteness monitor goes down for those guys, though, so I don't worry so much.
