We live in a valley near the Columbia River. There is a drainage slough that serpentines through town - otherwise, we would probably be living in a swamp! It doesn't sound lovely, but I don't mind the slough - lots of wildlife in and along it, including possums, racoons, beavers, nutria as well as a lot of large and small birds/ducks, and I have been told coyotes have been seen along it, although I have not personally seen any. Our yard is not fenced, so these animals have been in it as well as a few off-leash dogs wandering through. We potty trained to the UgoDog for that reason - I did not want the Havs out there until their shots were complete. If our yard had been fenced, I probably wouldn't have been so paranoid about it.
