Not surprised. They're in the city, too. I was in Chicago on Labor Day weekend and called one in there. They're opportunists, and they know how to live in close proximity to man.




Cool photo.

They're definitely in all the major cities. There was one City can't remember if it was Detroit or Chicago that actually released them to control rodents. Don't know if it's actually working or not.

Coyote are very adaptable as long as there is a food supply and adequate escape and denning cover.

They can thrive around cities since those areas typically have a lot of prey species and enough cover to meet their other survival needs.

Bears have also been learning to live closer to people because they have learned it is easier to eat several pounds of food scraps from an easy to open garbage bag than it is to tear a stump or log apart to find a couple grubs.

If wildlife species are going to survive in today's world they will have to learn how to live closer to people. Coyotes are simply one of the species capable of doing just that.

All true, but also sad. Habitat loss is the greatest threat to wildlife. But hey -- let's build another mall where we can buy $200 sneakers.
