Artist's Description

Despite a recent string of good luck with coyotes, the last couple of weeks I haven’t seen a single coyote. I was hoping to catch some coyote pups since I hadn’t seen fox kits, but that seems to be off the table for now too.

There are at least 4, if not more, coyotes, that live in or around my local park. There seem to be 2 alphas – a male and female. I believe this is the male – he’s much bolder and doesn’t mind being spotted and followed (at a respectful distance). The female is much more shy and bolts at the first sign of people.

Female pups usually stay with the coyote pack and increase the coyote pack size, while male pups usually leave to find their own areas when they reach adulthood.

This big male was out hunting voles after a Spring storm. He didn’t mind me tagging along at a distance, and wasn’t too fearful – but he always kept an eye on me.
