Coyotes, the wild dogs

Coyote (Parc Nature Bois-de-Liesse)Coyotes live in Rose Canyon, our local canyon in San Diego. I picked coyotes because they’re amazing creatures. Coyotes are wild animals..  I’m going to tell you about coyotes and what they eat, what they look like, and what they eat.

A coyote has white and brown fur. It has sharp ears and  looks like a dog and it has a tail. If you think a coyote looks like dog, it is a dog. That’s because they are a member of the dog family but it’s not a dog.


Coyotes live in grasslands, deserts, and cold climates.Coyotes lives all in North America so that doesn’t mean you can find a coyote in Egypt or China. So a coyote lives in a nature park, San Diego, Canada, and all over south America.

Do you know what a coyote eats?  They eats birds, mice, voles, lizards, insects, garbage, and almost anything. What I mean of almost anything I mean like a mouse, deer, and even birds. Coyotes hunt in packs and whenever they kill their prey they howl and howl and howl and how they kill their prey they pounce on them and bite them. Do you want to know if coyotes hunt in packs? Yes they do. They first chase the prey then they surround it and attack it.

I hope you enjoyed my post about coyotes and what they eat, where it lives, and how it looks like. My opinion on coyotes are they are interesting animals. They are interesting animals because they have a population that’s not going down which means they are NOT an animal that are about to be extinct.
