There are animals that people love, and then there are animals that people hate. 

Based on our interactions with the public, coyotes are an animal that many people love to hate. 

A lot of that is based on fear of them, much of which is unwarranted. But as development continues to encroach on their habitat, encounters with them are on the rise. 

Sometimes, humans think they're helping out by feeding them. (Spoiler alert: Giving coyotes pizza is a terrible idea.)

Whatever your view on these animals is, one thing is for sure: They play a crucial role in the ecosystem not just locally, but throughout North America.
