Our Complex Relationship with Coyotes


Have you encountered a coyote in New Hampshire?  Coyotes were absent from the state in the 1800s, and since their presence was noted in 1944, it has grown to include every county.  Known as opportunistic omnivores, we learn more about current management practices of the coyote population, including the most recent proposed legislation in the N.H. House.


 The Concord Monitor reported on a bill limiting coyote hunting season.
N.H. Fish & Game has information on the Eastern Coyote.
Listen to our conversation from 2016 with the author of "Coyote America" about the resilient coyote.
