Hunting and trapping account for the big difference, Gehrt explains. Young coyotes are constantly being forced into what we see as marginal areas in the urban matrix. Solitary coyotes, usually less than two years old, can cover huge areas.
One female inexplicably took off on a nine-day, mile trip to Wisconsin and nearly back, at which point she was killed by a car. She became a local celebrity when a TV news crew filmed her in Cabrini Green at dusk, likely in search of rodents scurrying about the grassy vacant lots. Now Gehrt hopes to recapture her and attach a smaller radio collar that should last four years. Then she can carve out a territory and begin breeding. While rural coyote packs often consist of an alpha pair and pups, urban coyotes tend to live in groups of five or six adults that maintain a territory of about three square miles.
Only the alpha pair mates; subordinates—typically older siblings—help to raise pups. In April females look for existing dens or dig new ones amid bushes or trees, and have litters ranging from four to seven pups. Unlike wolves, coyotes hunt alone or in loose pairs. Yet the boundaries do shift. Development might force a pair from a vacant lot. Prime real estate may open up if one mate dies and the other leaves, or if the inhabitants are culled. In that case, what happens next is predictable: Remove coyotes, and new ones will come in and take their place.
Part of what enables raccoons and skunks to thrive in urban environments is their predilection for trash.

Coyotes are a different beast. Fittingly, over lunch in , Gehrt and a colleague, biologist Charles Paine, figured out at least part of their diet: Canada goose eggs. As with many urban areas, geese had moved in and their population was exploding.
So Paine was puzzling over why, in the early s, the local growth rate had dropped from 15 percent to about one percent. At the same time, Gehrt had seen coyotes enter tall waterside grasses at night and exit with something white in their mouths.
Coyotes, they deduced, were depredating nests. They set up infrared cameras with motion sensors to test the theory. They were amazed to discover that the fierce birds fled when coyotes approached. If they refused to leave, coyotes would kill the adult, then take an egg.
Interestingly, instead of eating the eggs, they buried them, returning for them up to three weeks later. One goose can generate more than a pound a day. Fewer geese also reduces the need for costly solutions, such as poisoning or roundups. At the same time coyotes are putting a dent in the deer problem. Whitetails, of course, are a major carrier of the potentially fatal tick-borne Lyme disease. Coyotes are a natural alternative to expensive and labor-intensive tactics—trapping and relocating, contraception, hiring hunters. Even if, as Gehrt notes, they rarely take down adult deer, they can slow population growth by preying on fawns.
Research suggests that in some instances, coyotes take up to 80 percent of fawns, tearing at their throats with inch-long canines before ripping into the flanks. Based on scat studies, coyotes mostly eat rodents, like voles and rats. Gehrt points to anecdotal evidence that when coyotes are removed from a golf course, rodent numbers skyrocket.

The scat also revealed that coyotes eat rabbits, fruit, and raccoons, plus some birds and cats. The same holds true nationwide.
We found very few anthropogenic sources—a few scraps of garbage, bits of plastic, cigarette butts.
