YOU SEE BEFORE YOU TWO VERY INTELLIGENT SPECIES COMMUNICATING WITH EACH OTHER
in a way only they know …. two coyote mates and crow

Intelligent carnivores like Coyotes have the capacity to interact successfully with all species in their environment….including us. Though you may not even be aware of it….they observe your behavior and how you use your environment, and they act accordingly. This is true for those who find rural areas their homes, as well as those who find cities and suburbs their homes.

We who live on the American continent  are so fortunate to have our unique and resilient Coyotes…America’s wild dogs….or as the Navajos would say “God’s Dog”

They can live among us…and while striving to survive themselves they at the same time are keeping our human environments healthy and balanced. Below is a link from the Wildlife Society sharing the research of Dr. Stan Gehrt: Coyotes living in Chicago… a tribute to their amazing resiliency!
Do we know how to live with them?
