About this book

Chasing Coyotes recounts the stories of residents in many US cities who have encountered coyotes or suffered the consequences of coyote attacks on themselves or their loved ones. These accounts run the gamut from simple sightings near homes, at parks, and on city streets to coyote attacks on humans.

In addition to background history on coyotes in urban areas and scientific data about coyote habituation and behaviour, the author provides practical advice for those seeking to "coyote-proof" their homes and communities. Although no measures are foolproof, taking the practical steps outlined in Chasing Coyotes will lessen one's chances of a coyote encounter or attack.
