Name: Leslie S.
Have any coyotes been cited in any of the Chicago forest
preserves,parks or general area of the city's north side, specifically
Lake Michigan on the E., Harlem Ave. to the W., Howard St. on the N and
Roosevelt Rd to the S in the last two years?
Coyotes have been abundant in suburban forest preserves for quite a few
years, since roughly the mid-1980's; sightings within the city of Chicago
particularly far northwest side neighborhoods and occasionally Lincoln
Park, and other areas are usually reported a couple times a year.
