My sister in law lives in Sun City AZ and has been surrounded by coyotes when she was out walking her little dog. She had to pick up the dog and try to chase them off. A neighbor finally chased them off and she took refuge on his front porch. Seems they don't have much fear of humans because nobody shoots at them there.
My sister in law has started carrying pepper spray, at least.
