Officials at the Cape Cod National Seashore are threatening to close a parking lot in Provincetown because people have been feeding coyotes, prompting the animals to start begging at cars. Chief Ranger Leslie Reynolds said nine coyotes were spotted begging at cars one night last month at Herring Cove Beach. He told the Cape Cod Times that rangers have found dog food and piles of fish guts and heads in the area, which indicates deliberate attempts to feed coyotes. He said that signs have been posted warning people not to feed wild animals and that patrols have been doubled. If that does not work, the lot will be closed, he said.
