The coyote’s presence is a boon to a rural community in central New Mexico, where people and their livestock often go out of their way to avoid being eaten by a feral cat.
A recent study by researchers at the University of New Mexico has found that the feral cat population has exploded in areas where coyotes have been introduced to provide food for livestock.
But even though coyotes can provide a tasty meal to some animals, the coyote is not a good neighbor, according to the study, which was published online Thursday in the journal PLOS ONE.
In its current state, coyotes are not the best predator in their own home, and can damage and kill the habitat of native species.
“They have no problem destroying or killing their own kind,” said study co-author Chris W. Johnson, a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at the university.
“And they can kill other animals.
It’s just a horrible way to live.”
But it’s not a terrible way to stay alive in rural areas, Johnson said.
Coyotes live in large, burrowed burrows, which are often filled with rodents, and they can be seen every day in these areas.
“It’s the largest number of coyotes in the state of New Mexican, and it’s probably the largest population of coyote in the United States,” Johnson said, pointing to the area where the researchers found the coyotes.
The coyotes eat a wide variety of plants, including fruits, vegetables, berries and nuts.
The researchers found that a large number of these plants are eaten by coyotes, as well as by livestock.
The number of rodents that coyotes kill, the researchers reported, is similar to that of the rest of the animals in their home, as opposed to a coyote eating just one animal.
The scientists estimated that the coyo’s prey species is more than 20 percent of the total number of animals that coyote eat in the U.S., and that coyo prey is often fed on by livestock, deer and goats.
“We think coyotes might be eating more animals than they are taking,” Johnson told NBC News.
“If they’re taking so many animals, it means they have to have food to sustain themselves, which they do.”
The study found that when the coyot is not around, the rodents that live in the area are much more likely to eat the coyos.
The study also found that coyot prey is not always found in the same place, as a large portion of the population lives near roads, fences and other public and private property.
“In this particular study, the deer that are killed were more likely in the areas where there were more coyotes than in the rest,” Johnson explained.
“That was a big surprise, because coyotes don’t typically attack deer in these same areas.”
When the coyots are around, they also feed on the food animals in the community, including goats, cows and other livestock, according the study.
The team found that some of the livestock, such as cattle, were killed by coyote predation, as were a lot of deer, as they feed on them, Johnson noted.
Some of the coysters have been known to be seen roaming around in the rural areas where they live, but it’s unclear how long the animals were seen.
In the study’s final section, the authors examined the coyotle’s diet.
They determined that the animals that were fed on were the only ones that were able to consume more than their normal diet, as coyotes typically eat many small prey species.
For instance, in one part of the study area, the team found coyotes feeding on more than 50 different species of deer.
But the authors were not able to determine how many of those prey species were also eaten by the coyoters.
Johnson said the researchers were not sure how many coyotes were feeding on livestock.
“Our findings are that coyoters are feeding on a wide range of species, including mammals, birds and reptiles,” Johnson wrote in the study report.
“What this means is that coyoter-associated predator-prey relationships are widespread and complex, with multiple factors driving interactions between coyotes and their prey.
Our work offers a framework for understanding the impact of coyot predation on ecosystem functioning.”
