Helping people understand coyotes

Stan Gehrt has recent reason to howl. The scientist in CFAES’ School of Environment and Natural Resources, who has pioneered research on urban coyotes, was featured in the March edition of the National Wildlife Federation’s Ranger Rick magazine for children (“Coyotes in the City”); and was quoted in Newsweek magazine on Feb. 14 and April 26 (“Are Canada Goose Jackets Inhumane? The Controversy Explained” and “Coyotes Are New York’s Newest Immigrants,” respectively).

More information on Gehrt’s work is available on the website for his Chicago-based Urban Coyote Research Project.
