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.

- J. Frank Dobie, The Voice of the Coyote

How do I keep him away from my yard. I have two maltipoos I feel he'd find delightful 😬

Two dead coyotes right on top of each other?

I tagged NSFW die to the potentially upsetting image.

I was out with my dogs in Cleveland National Forest, San Diego county and found two dead coyotes right text to each other.

What could have happened?

I assume they were shot, but due to the decomposed state couldn’t really tell, and it was in an area most people wouldn’t be hunting. Not impossible, but improbable.

Could a larger coyote or mountain lion have done this? I assume if another animal killed them they would be spread farther apart.

I just find it extremely odd that they were stacked like that.

Is shot by hunters most likely?

Whats the general opinion of this book?

Recently joined this sub after reading and falling more in love with coyotes. I found it chilling and sad at what an animal I remember seeing in my backyard since I was shorter than they are went through. Never put much heed when I was younger to the stigma around them until high school but never understood the history.

How rare is it to see a black Coyote?

Wife and I made a quick grocery run.

Saw a large black animal first I thought grey fox but way too big. All the strays here don't move like this one did. Saw us and booked into the woods before I could get a picture.

Checked a few videos and pictures online 100% sure it was a melanistic Coyote. Google says about 1% and only in the Southeastern US.

Felt surreal. I've seen plenty of coyotes never seen a black one til today.

Fine looking coyotes.

East TN critter ID, please

Eastern TN, so our security cameras catch bears, foxes, coyotes, and bobcats fairly often. Usually we can tell what we are seeing, but in this clip we are not sure. Any help is appreciated.

Are there any pure blooded coyote populations left?

I find hybridization super fascinating. Things like the Eastern Coyote being such an interesting hybrid of 4 different canis species. But I've noticed people say how " 'X' coyote is a hybrid of 'X' species." So I was just wondering if there are any pure blooded coyotes left anywhere in North America?
