Coyotes are found throughout Illinois—in rural, suburban and highly urban areas. So if you see a coyote resting in or crossing a backyard, golf course, park or field—that is normal coyote behavior. It is also common to see coyotes out during the day. As long as they are given their space, coyotes do not typically pose a threat to people or pets.
Animals such as coyotes, foxes, bobcats, raccoons, and opossums are all active at night, especially around dusk and dawn. To make sure they don’t come too close to your home, be sure that pets are kept indoors at night, properly store garbage, don’t leave pet food outside, and keep your grill clean.
