Most people in Muncie and Delaware County that are not familiar with the eastern coyote, will see a coyote and just think it is a dog.
"The coyote's favorite food is anything they can chew". The coyote is a carnivore that is able to adapt to the available food supply. The coyote is a significant predator of both wildlife species and farmer's livestock, as well as house pets. Primary wildlife species that the coyote prey upon are white-tailed deer and small mammals such as rats and mice. The Muncie area coyote diet also consists of rabbits, groundhogs, turkeys, chipmunks, squirrels, muskrats, fruits, berries, small stray dogs, and the occasional house cat.

Predator-prey relationships between the white-tailed deer and the coyote have been extensively studied. The coyote is a significant predator of deer fawns. Studies have shown that the coyote's diet consists of 70% fawns during June and July. During the winter months Muncie area coyotes begin to kill deer again and become the main diet of coyotes. Although the coyote takes healthy adult deer during the winter, winter killed and wounded deer as well as carcasses from hunting season probably make up the bulk of the winter diet. Coyote predation has significant negative effects on deer herds. In some northern states, deer herd densities are relatively low and their habitat consists of vast wild areas with severe winter weather. In those areas food habitat studies showed that white-tailed deer made up 50-60% of the coyote's diet.
