Coyote November 2010
Coyote sighted at Memory Gardens Cemetery on East Euclid Avenue in Arlington Heights on Saturday, November 20, 2010. Compare to the appearance of a fox in the video below.

General reports of animal sightings without threatening behavior do not require emergency calls to 911. Arlington Heights Animal Wardens can be contacted for coyote sightings and general information at 847-368-5415.

DESCRIPTION:
The coyote looks similar to a medium sized German Shepard from a distance.
They weigh between 20-40lbs, stand 15-20in tall and are 4-5ft long including the 14in tail.
Their upper body color is generally dull yellow to gray with white or cream colored fur on the throat and belly. They have erect pointed ears and dark tipped tails.

BEHAVIOR:
Coyotes are primarily nocturnal but it is not unusual to see one during the day.
They have become desensitized to the existence of humans and allow themselves to be seen.

Coyote attacks on humans are extremely rare and are usually caused by interaction initiated by the person, such as feeding them or investigating their dens.

They eat mice, squirrels, rabbits, birds and other small animals. Coyotes help balance the fox, raccoon and opossum population. They take advantage of human-associated foods like garbage, pet foods and birdseed. Unattended pets are also an easy food source.

REPRODUCTION:
Coyotes mate in February and March with pups born in April or May. They are territorial creatures and may view other animals, including dogs, as a threat.

They often utilize abandoned fox, skunk, and woodchuck burrows for dens. Areas under decks and around sheds are also used by coyotes.

LIVING WITH COYOTES:
Never approach, touch, or intentionally feed a coyote
Eliminate all outside food sources, especially pet food. Secure garbage cans.
Clear out wood and brush piles creating habitats for rats and mice which may attract
