Responding to a public outcry and media attention, a homeowners association of a large residential development in the hills near San Clemente has halted its coyote trapping program. The association for the sprawling Talega development hired an extermination company last week to trap and kill the coyotes that had become bold enough to wander from the hills and into the housing tract.
