Do feed the coyotes

Coyoty eats possibly carcinogenic sunflower candy.

Sunny Seed Drops, "all-natural candy coated sunflower seeds", purchased at Pages Cafe at Tunxis Community College in Farmington, CT.

These are like sunflower seed M&Ms, and are pretty good.  The ingredients include "titanium dioxide", though, which doesn't sound very natural, so I looked it up and found that its a natural mineral used as a white pigment in food and medicine coatings, and in manufacturing.  Studies have found that it's a possible carcinogen, depending on its granularity.  But it's natural, so it must be all right.
