    People are supposed to be outside instead of in gyms!!
    That's like saying 'coyotes are outside instead of in zoos'.

    We have been seeing coyotes in our neighborhood over the last year for the first time. We also started seeing MANY rabbits running around just prior to when the coyotes started showing up. Coincidence?

    No attacks/interactions with humans as far as I've heard around here though.

    I only hear them in the summer when the windows are open a bit more. Haven't heard or seen them.

    They get fat and healthy eating pet food and pets.

    We had to keep out pets inside, at our old place.

    This was outside our bedroom window one morning. I guess there was a mouse or such hiding in that drain pipe.

    I’ve seen one in our neighborhood a few times lately. Typically, I think they want nothing to do with humans. I suppose hunger or mating season might change behavior.

    I have two formerly-feral cats who insist on being let outside sometimes. Really wish I could persuade them otherwise.

    A few years ago, we had a coyote that was often in our back yard and would not leave when confronted. I was about to escalate things when I looked outside one day and saw her with a couple of pups. She was keeping them under our deck. I called a truce at that point.

    Right now it's the breeding season for 4-6 weeks and they are more aggressive... watch your pets! Never heard of a healthy Coyote attacking a human, although there has been one I suppose somewhere!

    I see them from time to time in the city. I usually see them from a distance. But if I was up close, I would make my self look big and make loud noise

    we've got one with mange in the area, one of the neighbors has had it coming by their place...

    we just live in interesting, complex times with conflicting needs and wants... like pretty much every other period in history.. the difference now is that people have tell everyone what they are doing and what the other people SHOULD do.

    They are scattered all across the north shore of Lake Ontario in Canada, covering about 175 miles, right in downtown Toronto, living in parks, small forested areas, ravines, etc. People's pets have been meals for many of them. I've never seen one, and I've gone hiking in many ravines in my area.

    I my old neighborhood when I used to walk at night I once had 4 coyotes stroll past me in the center of the street.

    In my old old neighborhood they would run through my yard so I got a very large dog.

    I saw a red fox in the woods a few weeks ago near me here in southern Maryland. Are they inclined to similarly go after small animals like cats or small dogs?

    Do not attempt to befriend Coyotes, they are predators.
    I’ve read that back East coyotes are timid because farmers have been chasing them off thier lands for generations. I live on the newer built peace and love west coast where everyone goes hiking and tries to befriend coyotes leading to the most coyote on human attacks in the world. If you see a coyote scare them off, do not feed or befriend them.

    Yes. I have a suspicion the coyote that's the subject of these attacks had been hand-fed by people, probably off their own back porches. They may have stopped feeding it, but now, when the coyote sees a human, it thinks, "fried chicken".

    Here in Outer Redneckia coyotes know better than to show their faces else they get shot. We actually saw them more often when we lived closer in to Atlanta. I guess there's more food available and people don't take pot shots at them. They only have to worry about being hit by cars. I've seen a few dead ones on some major roads I used back when I drove to an office.
