WILDLIFE PRESENCE

The population of coyotes is challenged in urban areas as one by one they become victims of roadkill and their relatives voluntarily move away to chase mice and other prey in peace, further from the noisy and aggressive human settlements. Coyotes may actually be more present now than we realize, since pet dogs are no longer allowed to run free, preventing the nightly noises of animal chases that were once so common.
