Coyote

Coyote

  • Weight about 25-35 lbs, medium to large dog size.
  • Carnivore, dental formula 3-1-4-2/3-1-4-3.
  • Diet small to medium-sized animals, also fruits and insects.
  • Canines long for grabbing, holding and killing small animals.
  • Common in wooded and wild areas within cities and throughout countryside in North America, usually nocturnal in cities.
  • In a wild place, try squeaking by sucking on your finger and remain quiet and don’t move.  If there are coyotes around they will come to investigate what they think is a small animal in distress. If you see a long-haired dog with a bushy tail, it is most likely a coyote.
