Wile E!

Cemeteries are pretty much heaven for urban coyotes. No predators, many acres to roam, very little human contact, plenty of water, and lots of small rodents and vegetation to snack on. Both of Uptown's big cemeteries have coyote families who are rarely seen by visitors (see the exceptions at  St. Boniface and Graceland here). Reader MDS was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of this guy last week.

You can read more about Chicago's coyotes here, including Conflict Avoidance and What Coyotes Eat.

They eat rats, so they are aces with us.
