http://www.urbancoyoteresearch.com/index.htmRead an article of a study of coyotes in Chicago area. Chicago? Yep. Apparently there approx 2000 coyotes roaming Chicago at night.Stan Gehrt, an assoc professor at the School of Environmentat and Natural Resources are moving toward city areas as the food sources, including fluffy the dawg & kity, are much more abundant than in rural terrain. That survival rates for the first year run 65 to 75% in the city versus 13% & 35% for pups & adults in rural areas.Urban coyotes live longer too. Some even die from old age in the city[12/13 years old].Coyotes rarely attacks humans. Almost in all cases is due to the human feeding the "cute" coyotes. "Coyotes are smart, and they are very flexible; so if they eventually come to the conclusion that you're not a threat, they'll robably start looking at you as a source of food. And if you reinforce that by feeding them, they're going to test you to see how far they can go. If you see one, you are lucky, because it's rare. So take a picture and then throw a rock at it." " the take home message is that most people are living with coyotes, whether they know it or not. And if they aren't living with them today, they're going to be living with them tomorrow.
