When coyotes snarl and bark, yelp and howl just a few yards from your front door, the chills go straight to the base of your spine. I’ve seen this pack roam the city streets near my house. It’s just a few miles from downtown Phoenix, and a few feet from a desert park. Darren Julian, who tracks urban wildlife for the Arizona Game and Fish Department, says this area is a sanctuary for urban coyotes.
