COYOTE (Canis latrans)

coyote (2)Coyotes are medium sized animals that range up to 4 feet measured from the nose to the tail tip. Typically, they weigh between 20 and 50 pounds, but have been known to exceed that weight somewhat.

Coyotes can and do hybridize with domesticated dogs, producing fertile offspring without the intervention of man. They are referred to as “Coydogs” and can produce 2 litters per year against the 1 litter that coyotes produce. These animals are more dangerous to man’s enterprises than coyotes. They take not only wild food, but are extremely dangerous to livestock.
