Researching How to Live With Coyotes

Originally from central North America, coyotes are among the top predators in the United States. They have thrived, spreading across the continent, preying on rural livestock, and scavenging all the way to urban areas—there have been sightings of the canine in New York City's Central Park. Researchers are studying clashes between the predator and humans while keeping in mind that humans have provided the settings for coyotes to live comfortably.
