New name for the Chicago Bears | 10:04 am | 2 February 2006
It seems there’s thousands of coyotes living in Chicago:
He [Gehrt] found they have a 60 percent annual survival rate — twice that of their rural counterparts… …Their presence can be helpful, though. Gehrt found they’ve reduced a growing population of Canada geese, and said other studies cited coyotes as useful deer and rodent population controllers.
That’s really cool! (And another reason to keep the cats inside.)
