Coyotes are a rampant problem in parts of Missouri, and are rapidly becoming a common nuisance in urban and suburban areas, including St. Louis City and St. Louis County. Coyotes look somewhat like small German Shepherds, but with lighter coloring and longer noses and legs. Adult coyotes can weigh up to 50 pounds, and are up to 6 feet long from nose to end of tail. Coyote tracks usually look slightly longer and narrower than regular dog tracks.
Coyotes are opportunistic eaters, and will eat live animals such as house cats, rabbits and other rodents, small dogs, birds and various invertebrates. They will also eat trash if it is readily available. They scavenge and can bring down larger prey such as deer, sheep and goats.
Like other canine species, coyotes can carry and transmit heartworms, hookworms, canine hepatitis and parvovirus, in addition to sarcoptic mange rabies and distemper.
Because of health risks and Conservation Department regulations, amateur removal of coyote is not recommended.
