Coyotes are members of the canine family, which includes wolves, dogs and foxes. Adult coyotes weigh an average of 30 to 50 pounds, and are four to five feet long from head to tail. They are carnivores whose diet consists of rabbits, deer fawns, birds and various invertebrates. They also scavenge and can bring down larger prey in packs. They raise pups in dens, but seldom make their own. They possess exceptional senses of smell, sight and hearing, and can produce a distinct howl that we have all come accustom to.
Coyotes prefer to avoid humans, but become a big nuisance when it comes to certain livestock. Occasionally, an individual coyote learns that chickens, sheep, lambs and calves are easy prey.
