Modest Mouse - Coyotes


A new University of Georgia study aims to understand how coyotes live in Georgia, South Carolina and Alabama (where they seem to be doing much better than in the West and the North). They’re trying to trap about 160 coyotes and fit them with GPS collars so they can learn how the animals navigate a human-dominated landscape.

How do they coyotes react to being trapped? Find out here.

I live on the edge of a very wooded mini-city and have developed a crippling fear/paranoia of what’s in the woods at night, specifically what people or things might hide there. I request an image for protection or to ward away creeping predators be they spiritual or the coyotes that watch my cat through the window. thankyou!
