'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Worse than deer

To me, looking out my window on a misty morning and seeing several deer walking quietly through my backyard is a beautiful, almost spiritual, experience. Of course, realizing that hitting one while driving could be an actual spiritual experience that I prefer to avoid, I am always on the lookout for one to pop out before my car.

However, I am even more afraid of departing this world because of drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or are driving without a license or while texting, etc. It always seems strange to me that I rarely hear any great outcry about disposing of or transporting these human jerks to a place where they will pose no threat to anyone. I suppose the latter are to be forgiven because at least they won't come in our yards and eat our posies! Poor deer!
