I hear coyotes howling every night – and it sounds like there are dozens of them! Isn’t it dangerous to have a pack of coyotes so close to humans?

Coyotes can make 11 different vocalizations. In fact, their Latin name means “singing dog!” When all these vocalizations are strung together, one or two coyotes can sound like a pack. Though a coyote family (pack) can include multiple animals, they normally hunt alone or in pairs so the chances of encountering multiple animals at once is extremely unlikely.
