A photograph taken by Douglas Lewis shows a coyote hanging around the Negro Bar area near Lake Natoma. The coyote had been living in the area for at least four years and had never seemed threatening, Lewis said. A U.S. Department of Agriculture employee shot and killed the coyote on Dec. 22. Rich Preston, superintendent of the recreation area, said rangers found the coyote hanging around the parking lot in the Negro Bar area, unfazed by humans and vehicles.
