Coyotes are widely known to be a nuisance in North America especially to farmers. They have a home radius of over 30 miles and will den up near a viable food source.
Coyotes typically grow to 15-46lbs and can reach speeds up to 43 mph when in pursuit of prey. Though coyotes have been known to travel in large groups, they typically hunt in pairs. Typical packs consist of up to 6 closely related adults, young and yearlings.
They are nocturnal though sometimes can be spotted during daylight and can live up to 10 years in the wild. Mating occurs between late march through early march and once a female chooses a partner they may remain temporarily monogamous for a number of years.
Coyotes can carrier rabies which can be a major health risk as well as be a threat to pets or livestock. Do not attempt to get rid of these animals, trust the professionals at Heritage Wildlife Removal. Our critter control consists of safe and humane tactics to retrieve the creature and return them to their habitat.
