Coyotes are living among you. They used to prefer thick forests, lush woodlands and wide open prairies. All these had something in common. They all provided enough food, shelter and cover for coyotes to survive. However coyotes are becoming more and more of a nuisance for homeowners in more populated areas of Wisconsin. Not only are coyotes surviving in urban areas, but they’re actually thriving due to the excess amounts of food, water and shelters available to them. In fact, calls have come in from people seeing coyotes running in the streets of downtown Milwaukee!
