Are coyotes afraid of humans?

    Coyotes are generally afraid of us. They see us as threats rather than food. However, recent studies show that these animals are slowly losing fear of humans. “In the absence of harassment by residents, coyotes can lose their fear of people and come to associate humans with this safe, resource-rich environment.”

    In general, coyotes are fearful of humans and will go out of their way to avoid them. However, there are some urban areas and national parks where living close to humans is changing some coyote behavior. In some areas, close interaction with humans is making coyotes less fearful, and approaching humans in instances they would normally avoid. Coyote attacks are very uncommon, but a few have occured in recent decades in southwest communities.
