Mary Cummins investigates burned house with coyotes, Animal Advocates

318 Brockmont, Glendale, CA. Burned house with coyotes living in it. See the can of Kerosene? Hmm.

I was just at the property today to investigate. I had offered to scare the coyotes out of the house and board it up so they could not re-enter. The front of the house is boarded up but the side gate and door is open. The property cannot be secured because it’s missing most of the roof and walls. They need to tear it down.

While I was there I spoke to the neighbor. She said she does not want the coyotes killed. She’s sure they’ll move along when they demo the house. I also met someone from I think KTLA. He was told by the Dept of Agriculture that they will not trap, kill the coyotes. They hope the coyotes will move along when it is demo’d. I don’t know if the media got the story wrong or if the Dept of Agriculture is changing their tune. I gave the neighbor my card in case she sees any coyotes in need.

I did a little research into the owner of the burned house. He lost his job and is way upside down on the house. He doesn’t want to put any money into demo’ing it but he did get a demo permit. It’s possible the City will force him to demo it or they will demo it for him and charge him. It is a public safety hazard in its current condition. I don’t suggest anyone enter the house. It’s trespassing to enter the house and it’s not safe.

Look at the first photo. See the can of Kerosene? Makes you wonder, doesn’t it. Here is the main article at the Times where people are posting.

No way to board up this house. It must be torn down.

No roof.
