The two I saw where light gray/ gray in color with big bushy tails ( not a small Wile E. Coyote variety ) It is the norm that they will avoid humans caution should still be taken with children, they can be more aggressive in a pack. When they are accustoming to human sent this will decrease their fear of humans. In the Gunks and surrounding area human sent is prevalent. As said before by several people they are no big deal, although we should be aware of this; just as a pack of feral dogs can be dangerous so can a pack of coyotes under the right circumstances.
Big cats are another thing they will drag off pets some big dogs, and small children.
OK So I made this last sentence up, from urban /rural legend, but it sounds good.
All in all the wilder the better!!
I can't climb enough!
But I am climbing more!!
