If you don't see any fox around then you surely have coyotes. Beware with small dogs and cats as they make easy prey for the coyote. My friend lost two cats to the wild canine.

I know there is coyotes in Lemon Grove,CA because people there said at the very night they come out to the streets and look for food like small dogs, cats, rats, and anything else they can eat. they could also jump small fences and never leave pet food outside when there is coyotes or they will start coming to your house

I believe I have a coyote living around my home in West Chester / Downingtown. At first I thought it was a yucky looking grey fox. I come to find out I was wrong.

They fear humans (all ages) and hunt at night. There are 20,000 in PA now (they were all wiped out 100 years ago. During harsh winters, they are effective at reducing deer heard populations. Happy to say they finally arrived at Valley Forge.

We just spotted a coyote lurking along our back lot on sunday morning around 11:00 AM in Kennett Square. At first we didn't ID it. We thought it was a tall skinny fox with over size ears, a mangy coat anda long thin tail. It had a weird gait. As I looked at pictures of them, I am certain it was a fox.

It didn't seem scared and don't they travel in packs? We think it was a female. What kind of sound do they make?

Sometimes they giggle when consuming little children.

I saw a coyote about 30 years ago between Marshallton and West Chester near an area called the slaugh..went home and told my dad. He thought I was crazy.Being an avid wildlife lover..I knew what I saw.A few days later he saw it up on a bluff overlooking Creek Rd. They have been here for quite awhile..haven't heard of any little children being eaten by them...

Saw a large coyote dead on the side of the road on rt 29 in great valley next to the quarry. Was shocking to see one. Didn't realize they were in my "backyard".

All you need to outsmart the coyote is the road runner. Wyle Coyote gets blown up in every episode of Looney tunes I have ever watched. Just make sure the Acme is locked up tight.
