“Living on the urban fringe of a small town I hear coyotes almost every night and in the daylight see their tracks cross my yard along the same path as the mule deer, California quail and raccoons; all of this is evidence that we have brought our domesticated world into their long established ecosystem. Helping the Urban Coyote Initiative is one way I can give back to my wild neighbors and learn more about positive ways to co-exist.”
