Living with Wildlife In The Neighborhood: Wile E. Coyote

Female coyote looking for something to eat: Mike in Tucson, AZ mortgage lender

~ Looking for a meal ~

Not many mammals are as adaptable to their environment as the Coyote.  You'll find it from Panama in Central America all the way north to Alaska.  Central Park in New York City boasts a population.

Our backyard in the community of Tucson Estates II is a frequent haunt of these singing dogs.  This young female wandered up out of the wash (that's arroyo to you Texans) to see what she might find.  It took her a few minutes to figure out that she wasn't going to find a meal at the Jones's, and she moved off through the neighbor's yard and back into the wash.

Coyotes are the reason that we limit our pet selection to the fish in our pond.  Domestic pets, especially smaller dogs and cats, are no match for a coyote, which sees them as just another couple of items on the menu.

If you're considering a home in the Tucson Mountains, be prepared to share your backyard with those who were here first.  This adaptable animal will be one such neighbor.
