I hear coyotes howling. Does that mean they have just killed something?

No. Coyotes howl for a variety of different reasons but it would be silly more often than not for a coyote to howl over a kill. Why would they want to attract attention to their food catch? Please click here to visit our page on coyote signs for more information on howling.

Habitat of Coyote 748

An ultimate, urban animal, Coyote 748 was fitted with a GPS-style tracking collar in the Bronzeville area of Chicago on February 24, 2014. At his capture, it was obvious he was of breeding age and once a few radio-locations were collected, we realized we had collared a resident coyote with an established territory. He seemed to go about his daily routine in a low-profile fashion, taking to the busy streets nightly without fail. In April, his normal quiet behavior turned aggressive towards dogs as people walked their pets through a specific area.
