In cities and towns across America, coyotes are thriving. This increased contact with people has led to bolder and more aggressive behaviors towards people and pets.
Hazing (i.e., scaring wildlife) often is promoted as a nonlethal method to reduce urban coyote conflicts, but there have been few controlled studies to evaluate its effectiveness. To better understand how coyotes with different human experiences respond to hazing, NWRC and Utah State University scientists conducted a behavioral experiment with captive coyotes at the NWRC field station in Millville, Utah.
