weather. >> with crab season closed it changed everything. and now the mavericks comes around and it just puts a boost in everybody. organizers are working with law enforcement to make the area a drone free zone. they do plan to approve a few drones to give fans a unique view of the surf competition. in the 15-year history of mavericks, no woman has been invited to compete. but that could change. the coastal commission is telling organizers they have to come up with a plan to include women in future events. and that could mean inviting female surfers to the titans of mavericks event or having a separate event. bart is considering

increasingly bold, venturing onto the street and lingering. >> when dogs walk by, he becomes attentive. no dogs or cats have been attacked. >> i don't think it's a good place for him to live here. he needs more place to hunt. i don't know if there's not enough food for him. >> he looks kind of gray. >> reporter: it's not unusual for a solitary coyote to stake out a spot for a while. possibly seeking his own territory or a mate. >> reporter: the residents wish he'd move on. >> i'd rather he live somewhere else. >> reporter: because? >> i have two cats. >> and someone wanders close to
