“No one has been studying coyotes in urban areas as long as he has, and his breadth of knowledge gathered over many, many months and years in the field is unrivaled,” said the film’s producer-director, Susan Fleming. “The combination of his knowledge and his incredible work ethic made him an invaluable resource for the film.”
