    That and peoples cats encountering coyotes.

    Where I live there are coyotes and a fair amount of feral/semi-feral cats; who seem to be the offspring of barn cats, every once in awhile I hear coyotes and cats around the same time I assume it's a cat trying to fight off the coyotes. I try not to think about who comes out alive...

    Where I live coyotes regularly eat cats that wander around at night. If I had a cat, I would keep him or her cooped up in the house, especially at night.

    We also have quite a few foxes around. I sometimes see them early in the morning when I am on my way to the train station to commute to work. I usually make that trip around 0400, when it's still dark. It wouldn't surprise me if the foxes also nab a cat or two when the opportunity presents itself.

    Huh, there are also foxes in my area too. There is actually a den in the field just outside. I'm sure there have been some feline and canid standoffs out there!

    Wow after the wolves were extinct in the Netherlands (last one killed in 1869 in the Deep South, but mostly already extinct in the 18th century), the last years they are back in my neighborhood, probably from groups in NW Germny. I guess that in a dense country like the Netherlands this means more risk of confrontations!?

    Yes that is certain. Wolves are shy of people for good reasons, but look out pets and livestock. Though if a person stumbled upon a wolf at the wrong time and wrong place, he or she could well be attacked. Though usually they'd flee.

    We have increasing problems with encroachment in the US and in some places, encroaching species are losing their fear of humans, due in part to draconian overreaction on culling the numbers of these animals (I'm picking on you, California).

    People forget these are predators. Encouraging or forcing contact between human societies and predators is not a good idea for either.
    "In the famous ship burial at Sutton Hoo in Suffolk, a purse was discovered; the lid was
    decorated with gold and garnets and decorations showing wolves confronting a human
    figure."

    There was a deliberate campaign to wipe out wolves in or near Wales :-
    "Another Anglo-Saxon reference to wolves concerns Constantine of Wales, who is said to
    have paid tribute to King Edgar in the form of 300 wolf skins annually. William of
    Malmesbury recorded a similar tale noting that King Edgar of England demanded 300 wolf
    skins a year from King Idwal of Wales (circa 985 A.D.) as tribute. However, these numbers
    may be regarded as a little suspect; there would probably have not been enough wolves
    available to fulfil the demand and at least one researcher states the first record of the
    tribute demand was not written until approximately 140 years after these events."

    The problem with wolves being hunted by men is that a wolf won't just kill one sheep. It will continue killing many sheep at a time but eats only one. Back in the days livestock was dear to people, so wolves' fate was decides as people's population increased in Europe. This winter several people of several villages in the northern part of my homeland complained about wolves attacks in winter. Many dogs were stolen and people were afraid to send their children in school. In the evenings the streets were empty.

    Here's an example for the amount of damage a single wolf can do.

    Foxes are similar here in the UK but obviously not as powerful. Predators do what they evolved to do, they will kill as many as they can because it's pure instinct. Unfortunately we provide a source of food for them and they were here first.
    They also help to maintain a healthy eco system but human societies and large predators means problems for both. I hope our population doesn't expand to the point that there is no room for anything else.
