Everything related to Coyotes (otherwise known as Canis latrans).

Welcome to /r/coyote!

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.

- Craig Childs, The Animal Dialogues: Uncommon Encounters in the Wild

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

Are these noises from coyotes?

Laying in bed and am hearing this whooping sorta noise outside, sounds like a bunch of them. My guess is either coyotes or foxes.

Cozy Coyote Pup

A mother and her two pups have taken up residence in our backyard in Los Angeles and one of the little ones has grown accustomed to snuggling on our outdoor couch and rearranging all the pillows.

West TN x2

First time seeing more than one at a time in this spot! Any thoughts on these guys? They look pretty young and scruffy to me- hoping it’s a summer coat thing and not mange or illness

Black coyote?

Pic was taken in south East Georgia never thought more then just black coyote but after finding out about the Florida black wolf(FBW) could this possibly be a cross. The FBW is was thought to be extinct from hunting but I’m sure the could have moved north to Georgia and not have probably. Thoughts?

Coyote or Fox?

This creature is currently roaming the neighborhood and evading all of the humane traps set. There is clear mange, but I’m on the fence with whether or not this is a coyote or a fox. Assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Deterring

Hi! Was wondering if human scent really is a deterrent for coyotes? My cat escaped into the woods behind my house, and I have been actively out there every few hours ever since. While I’ve never seen coyotes that close to my house/tree line, I’ve heard them in the distance. We are surrounded by a good amount of woods, but there are open fields not too far away from where my cat has been spotted

How long would my scent/present deter the coyotes for?

Wolf or Coyote?

Coming through the mountain we passed this guy. Wasn’t sure if he was a wolf or coyote. He was big like a wolf, but now the picture is making me second guess myself because it looks more like a coyote. What are your thoughts?

Coyotes are hunting my dog

I live in the pnw in a neighborhood surrounded by trees. There is this one pack that is using our neighborhood as hunting grounds. Small cats, dogs, rabbits, etc..

They continue coming in my yard when my partner takes the dog out at night, on leash he has a habit of jumping the fence. Tonight they jumped the fence and ran at my partner and dog. My dog is a little coward, he's a German Shepard who froze when they ran at him. This is the 5th night in a row they have done this.

I want to get rid of them. But living where I live the front yard is the only one the dog will go in which faces a bunch of house. I'm afraid if I use a gun it will hit something or someone unintentionally. Coyote repellent might deter my dog. It might also not work because they're hunting not marking territory.

I want my partner safe when they take the dog out to pee. I feel like I'm in an impossible situation. I just need some advice on some ways to get rid of them.

Adult and pups with mange

Hi, all -

We live in Michigan on ten wooded acres, and have been closely watching a pair of adult coyotes over the last two months. We see them several times a week, typically at the perimeter of our property along the dense tree line, and often hear them at night. One of the adults - we believe the male - has significant mange to his hindquarters and tail. The female appears healthy.

This morning, we woke up to two coyote pups sitting on the stairs that lead to a portion of the deck that runs along the back of our garage. They sat together quietly for about an hour before disappearing under the deck. Both pups also appear to have mange.

I’ve reached out to a local wildlife rehab center but figured I would also seek advice here in case I don’t hear back from them. Is it possible that we might be able to help them by setting out medicated baits? We understand that oftentimes the best practice is zero interference, but we are willing and able to help if advisable. I'm going to attempt to include a video of the pups with this post, but I'm not particularly reddit-savy, so it may not work.

Thanks!

Is this from a leg trap?

Our resident female has had a limp for over a year and I got a closer up view, it looks so much worse up close 😭

Resources on coyote behavior?

I want to learn more about coyote behavior, but every time I look for videos and such, it's always "Coyotes are dangerous they ate my baby" and other fearmongering stuff. I want to learn about their family structure, their relationship with humans, what to do when you encounter them in the wild (as I frequently do, living so close to a mountain with trails). I'd prefer some resources that go fairly in depth.

Thanks!

Limpy resident coyote

This coyote has been around for over a year, maybe two, with this limp. She has a mate since this winter, previously always alone. I know there’s nothing I could do but I wish I could 🥺
