We don’t see coyotes very often, but they are indeed present in every metropolitan area in the U.S. In fact, a coyote, believed rabid, was recently shot in my hometown of Rye Brook, N.Y., just 45 minutes north of NYC.
This Voice of America video explains why coyotes make a real contribution to our well being, including cleaning up the sick, dying, and dead among wildlife.
One study found that just one coyote, if only eating mice, can eat 10,000 in a year!
