Coyote Nips Dog On The Butt


I bet that dog was rattled.

I guess, it’s a dog eat dog world out there to these coyotes. It’s just another example of coyotes making themselves easy to hate. They are just always trying to kill things that we all love, whether it’s a man’s best friend or a big buck he’s been chasing.

Coyotes are one of the most adaptable and widespread predators in North America. These wild canines are known for their yipping calls and their ability to thrive in both wild and urban environments.

Coyotes are medium-sized dogs that can weigh up to 50 pounds. They are generally tan or gray in color and have bushy tails. Coyotes are omnivores meaning they eat both plants and animals. They will east all sorts of stuff but prefer things like small mammals, birds, insects.

Excellent hunters and are able to take down prey that is much larger than themselves. They are also scavengers and will eat almost anything they can.

Coyotes are highly adaptable and can thrive in cities and towns. They have learned to take advantage of the easy food sources that are available like garbage, pet food and even your pets.

One of the most common interactions between coyotes and humans in urban environments is with dogs. Coyotes see dogs as potential competitors and in some cases they may view dogs as prey. Small dogs are seen as prey and pull them in while larger dogs could draw them in for competition or curiosity.

This coyote is seen sneaking up to a medium-large sized dog that is just having a drink on his front lawn.

The coyote, clearly curious, slows down as it approaches the unsuspecting dog and sniffs as it leans in. The coyote thinks for a second and then goes for the nip on the back leg.

The dog does a 180 and is immediately after the coyote chasing it on down the road.

A wily little fella, indeed…
