Coyotes in urban Chicago; bears and mountain lions could be next
Urban coyotes suggest larger carnivores are on their way, expert says | The Bell Jar
According to the Ohio State professor, coyotes are the biggest of the carnivores to have found their way into the cities. A sign, researchers say, that indicates that bears and mountain lions could be next.“The coyote is the test case for other animals. Raccoons, skunks, foxes – they’ve already been able to penetrate the urban landscape pretty well. The coyote is the most recent and largest. The jury’s out with what’s going to happen with the bigger ones,” Mr. Gehrt said.
