Interaction with Man

Coyotes are quick on the take when it comes to a free or easy meal. They have learned that by looking hungry and pitiful, man will give them a handout. This is where they become too smart for their own good. Being mostly a nocturnal creature, they start staying up through the day looking for handouts. This takes from their hunting and also hurts their digestive system. Becoming too used to food and depending on man, they can become aggressive when they don't get their way. This boldness will mark them for termination. Coyotes are not relocated when this occurs. They try to find their way home and will more often than not be hit by a car while crossing a highway.
