☀Coyote (by wild prairie man)These will rip a fox to pieces and a Wolf dare not travel without a band against the coyote either. Cute they are not after living amongst many wild animals these are my least favorite. Skunks carry rabies too easily and tear up chicken pens. So here on the prairies I don't want to smell predator or hear the yip of the other.
The coyote is a canid native to North America. It is a smaller, more basal animal than its close relative, the gray wolf, being roughly the North American equivalent to the Old World golden jackal, though it is larger and more predatory in nature.
