Around 2,000 coyotes live in Chicago and New York and their suburbs–and probably in the big city nearest to YOU as well. They were once restricted to the Southwest, but they’ve spread across the country in the last 100 years. When your backyard got too crowded, they moved into the alleys between the skyscrapers.
Coyotes are smart, extremely adaptable and reproduce quickly. They’ll eat almost anything: rabbits, rats, geese, fruit, and insects–and maybe even your pet kitty.
