Have any coyotes been cited in any of the Chicago forest preserves,parks or general area of the city's north side, specifically Lake Michigan on the E., Harlem Ave. to the W., Howard St. on the N and Roosevelt Rd to the S in the last two years?

Coyotes have been abundant in suburban forest preserves for quite a few years, since roughly the mid-1980's; sightings within the city of Chicago particularly far northwest side neighborhoods and occasionally Lincoln Park, and other areas are usually reported a couple times a year.
