y following the Omega Park trail you will encounter coyotes. This canine (Canis latrans) covers a vast territory in North America. It weighs less and has finer features than the wolf. Its body is also smaller, it has a long slender muzzle and wide pointy ears.
Coyotes live as a family and females give birth to between three and eight young per year.
The family dens are under hollow trees or in old groundhog or rabbit burrows that are extended by the female (about 1 meter deep and 2 meters wide). Moreover, many other burrows will be found by the female to hide her young in case of danger.
Coyotes often hunt in small groups, they mainly eat small wild mammals. Unfortunately for farmers, they can also attack domestic animals.
