Out of all the towns, cities, and municipalities we service, Vandalia, OH seems to have the largest population of coyotes and the most conflicts with coyotes. We believe this is due to the geographic location of the city as its surrounded by two large parks: Taylorsville Reserve and Englewood Metropark. The coyotes flourish in these parks as they have no natural predators and hunting is not allowed. These parks encompass Vandalia from both the east and the west. Also on the north side of Vandalia sits Dayton International Airport, which also offers safe haven for coyotes as the Federal Aviation Association is not controlling their populations although we have heard of issues with coyotes on the airport runways.
We have successfully captured and removed hundreds of coyotes from Miami Valley cities such as Vandalia, Butler Township, Oakwood, Kettering, Centerville, Miamisburg and Springboro to name the most active areas. Most complaints and reasoning for nuisance trapping coyotes and fox is from an incident where a dog has been attacked and the homeowners need help. Almost everyone now a days has some sort of shed or deck which makes suitable den locations for these varmints and provides opportunity for pet interactions between predator and prey.

Ohio Red Fox and Ohio Coyote Facts
Coyotes and Foxes are Not Best of Friends
ohio fox and coyote facts
Have you spotted coyotes in your neighborhood? Coyotes are found in every one of Ohio’s 88 counties and have adapted to live among us inside city limits as well as rural areas. Unless provoked, coyotes rarely attack children or pets, but it does happen. Over the last two decades as coyote populations have exploded in southwest Ohio, red and grey fox populations have been on the decline. Coyotes are now top predators in the Buckeye State and red fox are competitors in their food chain, so in the coyotes eye, they need to be eliminated. Coyotes also view domestic pets such as dogs and cats as threats to their food source and if given the opportunity will kill dogs and feral cats just for the sake of removing competition. The main diet of coyote in the Dayton area other than stray cats is cottontail rabbit, whitetail deer, voles, shrews, field mice, moles, grasshoppers, and occasionally will rummage through garbage.
For the remaining red fox that have survived the coyote, they diet on very similar items as the coyote with the exception of whitetail deer. The main complaint we hear from Dayton area residents is that fox are coming into the yard or barn and eating livestock such as chickens and ducks. Fox are extremely intelligent and can find vulnerabilities in your fence or pen in order to prey on poultry. Grey fox are almost non-existent in southern Ohio and what remains is struggling to survive in the remote woodland areas of the state. One benefit the gray fox has over the red fox is that it can climb trees to escape predation from coyotes, as the red fox cannot climb is often exterminated by packs of coyotes.
