Everything related to Coyotes (otherwise known as Canis latrans).
This is a subreddit pertaining to anything related to Coyotes (otherwise known as Canis latrans).
Coyotes move within a landscape of attentiveness. I have seen their eyes in the creosote bushes and among mesquite trees. They have watched me. And all the times that I saw no eyes, that I kept walking and never knew, there were still coyotes. When I have seen them trot away, when I have stepped from the floorboard of my truck, leaned on the door, and watched them as they watched me over their shoulders, I have been aware for that moment of how much more there is. Of how I have only seen only an instant of a broad and rich life.

I confess to a sympathy for the coyote that has grown until it lives in the deepest part of my nature.

Sorry for poor quality. I spotted what I thought was a fox in Graceland Cemetery in Chicago but am now wondering if it was actually a coyote. I come from a country with neither so I'm not used to seeing them!
Hi Folks, Our award-winning documentary on coexistence with coyotes is now available on Amazon, Google Play, Apple TV, and VUDU. Please help us get the word out! It features Dan Flores, New York Times best-selling author of Coyote America, Camilla Fox, founder of Project Coyote, Chris Shadler, co-founder of NH Wildlife Coalition, and Numi Mitchell who conducted the Narragansett Bay Coyote Study.
I live in a suburban area surrounded by rural farms. A great number of people around me hate coyotes unfortunately (as Americans generally seem to do) and recently have had the city to come up with a “plan of action” to “fix” the recent uptick in coyote-human encounters.
Many of these encounters are people’s pets being attacked. The local news did a segment interviewing a man who lost his dog to a coyote and made no effort to educate the viewer on coyotes. Just plain fear mongering and anger (intentional or not by the news) directed at this native animal.
It is breeding season for coyotes as most of you on this sub know, so you would expect to see more coyotes outside; even during the day.
People leave their small pets outside unsupervised as if they live in a protective bubble apart from the ecosystem in which they actually live. Their ignorance leads their pets to be killed by coyotes, further ingraining the idea in their minds that these animals cannot be allowed to coexist with humans.
This post is kinda disjointed, but I want to have your opinions on what you think should be done to help Americans coexist with coyotes (and ideally have a more positive perception of them :-)). Do you think educating people is enough or do you believe something more should be done?
They come to my deck often looking for snacks I give to the squirrels…no squirrels have been harmed.
This dude had to jump two 5 foot fences to get into my backyard. I think he was on the trail of my neighbors cat that was in my backyard doing cat things moments before the Coyote showed up.
