But this year there is no fox nor hawk to be seen and the number of rabbits exploded. I will not care about that, but they are damaging my greens and grass and I've spent quite a few $ to fix my yard this summer .
Moth balls? Too bad the fox and hawk have moved on. Maybe the owl will head your way but I think he is more of a mouser.

Like possums, racoons, pigeons, and many other species, coyotes do well in urban as well as suburban environments. All the tasty rats, garbage, and the occasional Pekinese. Which to a coyote, is probably just another variety of rat. I believe Pekinese translates into the coyote language as "snack dog".

I saw a coyote in Tinley park t a few years ago.
It was just wandering around the side streets.

The coyote seemed very nervous and was very fast and nimble.

The coyote just disappeared in the neighborhood and clearly had his or her own agenda.
