Afternoon Silliness Inspired By My Alderman, A Coyote And Muggers

Here is an excerpt from the poorly written email I just received from my alderman:

"People living near the river are reminded to keep an eye on their small pets while they are outside as a coyote has been spotted near Kedzie and Belle Plaine last Saturday.

Finally, everyone is reminded to be alert as you transport any holiday packages in and out of your residences. There have been reports of muggings in the area so be extra careful this holiday season."

Which am I supposed to be more afraid of, the coyote or the muggers? And how do I get a job writing emails for aldermen? Also, what if I have an enormous pet, like a giraffe? Do I still need to keep an eye on it?
