Full Answer

In the United States, coyotes are found in the majority of states including Missouri, Arkansas and Alaska. While coyotes prefer forested areas, foothill and deserts, they are sometimes found near larger cities. Though coyotes will build a den and stay relatively close, they do wander in order to secure food sources. These omnivores will scavenge and eat nearly anything they can find. They prefer to hunt alone, but when stalking large animals they group up in packs. After having pups, the coyotes will stay closer to their den and mark the area to keep other coyotes out of their territory.
