Even though the vast and barren landscape surrounding Las Vegas appears to contain no life whatsoever, at a closer look you just might notice something peering back. Vegas wildlife includes coyotes, snakes, bats, foxes, cougars, and many other species that have made the harsh Nevada countryside their home.
Coyotes are seen in the wild as well as in more urban areas around the city. There have been several reported incidents of coyotes attacking and killing pets in some of the Las Vegas neighborhoods. However, they will almost always avoid contact with people.
