With the destruction of their natural habitat, they are forced to come near populated areas.

This past summer I had the worst experience. Coyotes are one of my biggest fears. It's kind of irrational, since I don't see them much and they can be pretty reclusive. However, I was in the same tent unit at camp as I was last summer. It's the second deepest into the woods, and the furthest site out didn't have any campers. So it was just us out there.

I went to bed early because I was fighting falling asleep at the dinner table all summer. I woke up at 9pm to the sound of one coyote. Probably a contact call, because moments later they all started going. I was in instant tears because I hate that sound and I knew they were close.

One of my tentmates tried to reassure me that they just sounded close but were far away. I asked them to tie the tent flaps tight (we were in large canvas tents). I went back to sleep.

Then it happened at least five more times during the night. Each time I woke up because it jumped me right out of my sleep. When we went to breakfast I could still hear them, though they were further out at that point. I then heard them again at 10am! They stayed forever.

I know they were likely not going to bother us but I do not like them. It's funny because one of my international co-councillors tried to reassure me that they don't bother people unless they are a lone coyote.

LOL.

Haha. I mean, I know I shouldn't fear them. But I just do. I make sure to NEVER walk alone, because I live in Maine. There's so much up here to run into. Plus my dad said no one will bother me if I have one of the dogs with me, lol.

I'm with you, don't want them nearing me or my dog. I read too much I guess, I've read that they will snatch cats and small dogs,
