Coyotes are a gateway predator?

Arnprior Joe: I don't think you'll find many wild animals larger than coyotes actually living in urban areas. Coyotes might be easily mistaken for dogs around, and get ignored unless they start killing pets. Not so much for bears, cougars, or even wolves. They're too easily noticed, and panicked over. They'll certainly be encountered in urban areas (we had a black bear check out Walmart's bakery in the last town I lived in), but they won't establish territory there.

I wouldn't be surprised if somewhere in Minnesota/Wisconsin/Michigan next spring an already occasionally glimpsed black wolf, assumed to be a dog and not a coyote, is noticed to have had a litter of wolf pups by people feeding it.
