I’m constantly told that coyotes are lingering about many suburban areas nearby, but I’ve never seen or heard one for myself. There are plenty more coyotes and foxes down south in the country within my area. Unfortunately, I live closer to the city, so I may never get to see them unless I actively look for them.

In my area, we have a lot of foxes and coyotes. I have heard many coyotes behind my house, and coyote hunting is quite popular in my area. Foxes are a little more elusive, but I have seen several in my area, albeit on separate occasions. We do have stray dogs in my area as well, but I'm not sure if those would count as "non-pets". Unfortunately, my state is too far south to have wolves, so coyotes and foxes are really all we have.

Ah! Lucky, lucky. I recently saw a coyote scouting a street near our neighbourhood in the morning, just as I was heading to school. That was the first and only time I've ever spotted a coyote here in the suburbs (in spite of people often telling me that they frequent this area). While it was a magical encounter, I can understand why it would be roaming out and about. We've had a lot of construction going on around here lately. It makes me wish that I could see one under natural circumstances.

I haven't actually seen many coyotes in my area, at least not living ones. I've seen plenty of dead ones though (they are often hit by vehicles on the roads, and like I said, coyote hunting is popular in my area). I've heard a lot of them though, especially on summer nights. I actually did see two of them last summer, they were trotting across a field behind my house, but they were only visible for about fifteen seconds before they disappeared into some thick bushes.
