Why so many coyotes in Cincinnati?
Increasing development of suburban neighborhoods in what was previously coyote habitat has removed all of the coyote's natural predators (such as wolves). Therefore, coyote populations have been left to surge unchecked. Unless these coyotes are trapped and removed by animal control professionals, you can expect continued conflict between coyotes and human lifestyles. Following expert trapper Tom Tyrrell's advice will at least reduce the potential for problems on your property.
Why pets are at risk from coyote attacks
Coyotes normally prey on small rodents, rabbits, deer, elk, moose, skunk, and other wildlife. With coyote populations growing, their natural food sources are shrinking. So they turn to small pets, seeing them as an easy, reliable food source.
