The Coyotes Near Your Home
Although initially evolved to live in open prairies, human expansion has driven them to live wherever they can survive. Adaptable creatures, they have even spread to the urban areas of Indiana. When first spotted, they may be mistaken for a dog. However, they live in feral packs and lack the thousands of years gone into domesticating our loving companions. Coyotes appear to have more pointed snouts and a "sleeker" look. They are very intelligent and take advantage of every opportunity they can to eat. This sometimes means your flock of chickens or even the family cat might end up missing. Their howls and yelps can be heard at night which sound like terrible screams.
When Should I be Concerned?
This answer varies from household to household. If you have young children, a beloved family pet that is let outside, or an unsecured coop of fowl, the answer is immediately. Although the numbers of coyotes attacking humans are low, they are increasing. The smaller their habitat gets, the more they have to encroach on ours. This causes them to become desperate and their attitudes to become unpredictable. Coyotes will eat anything they can. They prefer small rodents and rabbits but eat fruits, vegetables, and insects. This means your outdoor cats, small dogs, and/or flocks are at high risk of being taken by hungry coyotes. Although quite circumstantial, coyotes will devour watermelon or berry crops. Finally, coyotes carry diseases and parasites like heartworm, mange, and rabies that can be transferred to pets or even family members.
