Coyotes can be dangerous to household pets and humans when they are mixed with urban, developed areas.  A
professional coyote trapper, coyote control and coyote removal professional is needed in an area where coyotes are
prevalent and are causing problems for homeowners or business owners.

How to identify coyotes: A coyote’s pelt color can vary, usually, greyish brown or yellow-grey in the upper parts.  Their
lower body is much lighter in color – usually white or beige.  Coyote tails are usually tipped in a black color.  Coyotes have
large ears and small feet in relation to the rest of their bodies.

Coyotes can average around 30-34 inches in length, and weigh 15-45 lbs.  Northern species of coyotes are usually larger
in size than their southern counterparts.

Where do coyotes live?  Coyotes are known to dig their own burrows, or dens, with packs consisting of 6 adults or so
plus the pups.  Once they are set up in a den, their range of territory is usally around 20 kilometers in radius around the
dwelling.

Coyotes feed on small animals.  These can include, but aren’t limited to rabbits, squirrels, mice, prairie dogs, and other
mammals.  Coyotes also eat snakes and lizards.  Coyotes have a natural predatory instinct and have been known to attack
and kill household pets such as dogs and cats.  Small children should never be in the same area as wild coyotes.

Coyote's success as a species is its dietary adaptability. As such, coyotes have been known to eat human waste and pets.
Urban populations of coyotes have been known to actively pursue cats, and jump short fences to take small dogs.

Coyotes are known to carries disease and rabies.  As such, coyotes in a domestic area must be taken care of by a
professional coyote control or coyote trapper.

Some of the diseases that coyotes can carry include rabies, lyme disease (caused by ticks), ringworm, distemper, parvo
virus, and mange (caused by mites).

Rabies is the most serious of these diseases and can be passed on to prey and humans due to bites from the coyote.  
Lyme disease can be passed on from the coyote due to infected ticks living on the coyote’s skin.  Ringworm and other
dog-specific diseases can be passed on to household pets such as dogs from the coyote.

One misconception about coyotes is that they are usually in packs, however coyotes are usually alone or in pairs and can
be surreptitious and not noticed until they attack their prey.  Coyotes can be dangerous if cornered or perceived to be
under threat.  Coyotes should never live in the same area as human, in residential or urban areas.  A professional coyote
trapper and coyote control professional is needed to ensure these animals are safely and humanely removed from areas
where they should not be.
