Coyotes are getting less afraid of people and becoming more aggressive hunters. They've been known as more solitary hunters, and would call out to the pack after a kill, but things are shifting. Their patterns and techniques are beginning to resemble those of a pack of wolves where every member has its own job in a chase.
The number of attacks is on the rise, and not just on larger animals, but on children. :(
My aunts horse was eaten by coyotes after it had gotten its halter stuck on fencing. It's more rare of them to attack a free roaming horse, but it still makes me nervous.
