In case you doubted because you haven't seen them, coyote are everywhere now. Even in the suburbs. I was deer hunting 1 morning before work and this female critter was following the track of a grey fox that passed through 5 min. prior to my seeing her. I whistled to stop her before she entered a hedgerow 220 yards away and when she turned to chase again, put 1 in the noggin. The dog fell less than 50 yards from the interstate and behind a rest area. The field is right behind a subdivision. Regardless of how that may sound, the shot was outside of city limits and in a safe direction, toward a thick cutover. I am beyond careful when it comes to knowing what's beyond your target. I have more trail camera photos of other coyote in the same area.
