EcoSummit preview: Coyote strolls down sidewalk at night, no one even sees it

Stan Gehrt calls coyotes “ghosts of the cities.” And this WLS-TV, Chicago, story shows why (video, 3:59). It features Gehrt’s Cook County, Ill., Coyote Project and has some very cool infrared footage starting at the 1:53 mark in which coyotes stroll down city streets, down city sidewalks, and in city parks in the dark — and the people nearby don’t know it.

Gehrt will talk about the Cook County project, which is the largest, longest study ever done on urban coyotes, at the EcoSummit.
