‚Äčcoyotes016.jpgA recent news article brings to light a growing trend coyote management. Once creatures associated with rural areas and agriculture, the adaptable coyote now seems to not only occur, but thrive, in urban and suburban environments. As these animals become more plentiful in and adjacent to neighborhoods, it is inevitable that conflicts will occur. Such activities as a leaving pet food outdoors or garbage cans open and accessible will serve to attract coyotes to the area. Humans should never intentionally feed or try to bring coyotes closer to human dwellings but, rather, take managers to discourage coyotes from being comfortable around human activity.
