Scientific Wildlife Management, its research, information and training, and this website are a direct result of Rob, knowing that the coyote of today is a much different animal than it was even 10 years ago. The public’s perception of an animal than can co-exist with humans, in major cities and developed areas, and have no issues or conflicts with humans, is an image portrayed by anti-hunters and animal activists. The image portrayed is a far cry from what is actually happening in rural and urban areas across America. Nature is not a fairy tale where every living thing lives in harmony with all others, the true ways of nature is a very different reality altogether. Diseases wipe out entire populations of animals in some areas and animals kill and eat other animals every day in the real world. Coyotes and other animals have become very adept at living in close proximity to humans, using their homes and buildings for shelter, eating the food put out for pets, threatening and killing dogs, cats, and other small creatures, even attacking people in developed America. As the wolf was in the 18th and 19th century, the coyote is now the dominant predator in most of America, his only real threat coming from autos and humans. This website is designed to shed some light on predatory and nuisance animals, focusing on coyotes, but also raccoons, skunks, foxes, beavers, muskrats, and other animals that are thriving right alongside the public, in their homes, garages, in the waterways, empty lots and abandoned buildings in every community in the nation. Today’s coyote has become the new 21st century wolf, thriving in both urban and rural parts of America, harassing and killing sheep and calves in rural areas and killing and eating pets in cities and suburbs. Not only can the coyote of today live alongside humans, its thriving and becoming more and more aggressive and problematic. Coyotes habituated to humans without the threat of danger become brazen and unafraid, leading to attacks on pets and even humans.
