Can cats and coyotes live together?
According to a new research, cats and coyotes both frequent green spaces in a Los Angeles suburb.
Human-wildlife conflict is becoming more common as urban surroundings encroach on natural ecosystems.
While some animals shun any human interaction, others thrive in urban environments.
Coyotes, in particular, have become common visitors close to human settlements and are often considered as a major source of human-wildlife conflict.
These urban predators have adapted to eat a variety of human foods, including waste, decorative fruits, and domestic pets.
As a result, city dwellers frequently worry about the safety of their pets, particularly outside cats.
In an urban situation, it is feasible to reduce conflict between these two species.
