Their Environment

Here along our river trails coyotes are not generally aggessive, but they are also not overly afraid. I have seen them out in broad day light sunning themselves on a levee. People are jogging and bike riding by a hundred feet away on the paved trail.

There is a place up north of here were I have gone pheasant hunting several times. It is not unusual to kick a coyote out of hiding. They always take off at full speed towards the opposite end of the field. They have been shot and even pepperd with birdshot. They know that the humans there are armed.

The river trails forbid hunting and any hunting weapons. Those coyotes are not worried about humans.

I think that most wild animals learn quickly when to avoid us and when to not worry about us.
