I don't understand how I _removed_ content?? i was only trying to _add_ the following: "My dog weighs fifty pounds, so I think I am well-qualified to say that the coyotes I have seen are in fact about the same size. Unaware at that time of their presence in my area, I actually mistook the first one I saw (at relatively close range) for a German Shepherd. Apparently Eastern coyotes are bigger than their Western kin, so depending on your location, you may have only seen the smaller variant. Admittedly there's nothing else in this photo to give a sense of scale, but take a look at this beast: BTW, this is not my photo, but it's where my coyote sightings have been (Mt. Auburn Cemetery, near Boston)."

I took a (ridiculously!) long time to write something that I thought might add a little to the Talk page, I did try it out in the Sandbox, then inserted it, previewed it, and then finally submitted. It looked fine to me!?!

Again, I had no intention of removing anything, but apparently my small addition has now been removed. Was it because I failed to "sign" with 4 tildes? (I assumed that wasn't needed since I don't have an account.) Perhaps Wikipedia is beyond me! :-(
