Coyotes are Keystone predators and they play a crucial role in controlling the population of mesopredators e.g. foxes, raccoons, oppossums and skunks. Rodents make up 80% of their diet, making them Nature's natural rodent control (especially helpful where there is Hanta Virus and Plague endemic in rodent populations). They consume carrion, which helps to keep the environment and watersheds clean and free of disease.
When left to do their "own thing," we benefit tremendously from their activities. But due to our expanding population and their shrinking habitat, these remarkably adaptable animals have learned to live closer to us.
Human-coyote conflicts may arise when we intentionally feed them or inadvertently create free-food opportunities around our properties i.e. pet food left outdoors, free roaming pet cats and small dogs, unharvested fruit, and bird feeders that spill seeds on the ground that attract rodents, which in turn attracts their predators.
We must understand that some of our personal habits may have to change in order to permanently resolve conflicts we are having with coyotes, and to maintain a safe and peaceful co-existence with all of our wild neighbors. We resolve immediate conflicts, and instruct people across the U.S. in the most current techniques to avoid conflicts with coyotes.
