The U S Department of Agriculture does not list coyotes in Maryland an invasive species. Does your organization? If so, why?

Coyotes are not on the invasive species list. Here is more information from our webpage https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/coyotes
and the Md Dept of Natural Resources https://dnr.maryland.gov/wildlife/Pages/hunt_trap/coyote.aspx

This is not our area of expertise. If you have additional questions, please contact the Nuisance Wildlife Information Line. USDA wildlife operators will offer information on how to deal with nuisance wildlife, sick, injured, orphaned wildlife, and address any concerns.
