Aggressive coyotes

I have been alerted to what appears to be a large and aggressive coyote among other smaller coyotes in a wooded area near one of my rental properties. Growling and fighting type noises can be heard also. I'm not sure what to do about this situation. Should I call a wildlife specialist?

Is the coyote acting aggressively towards people or pets? Or is it just aggressive with the other coyotes?
