Coyotes are in the midst of building dens to raise their pups. During this time, they may take advantage of neglected or underutilized areas to establish their Spring den. Common spots to watch out for include beneath decks, sheds or even beneath dense and untrimmed trees or vegetation planted against houses or fences.
