The Coyoten Diet
Where does Canis latrans ("barking dog") live? Anywhere near a food source-and coyotes will eat almost anything. They've been known to chow down on chickens, domestic ducks, house cats, small dogs, raccoons, calves, lambs and carrion, but seem to depend on rabbits, hares, woodchucks, ground squirrels, mice, moles, small reptiles, ground-nesting birds, berries, fruits and various insects for their daily dose of nutrition. Coyotes also like to eat foxes. If a pack moves into the neighborhood, you can bet your last cartridge the fox population is in big trouble. They show no mercy in this regard. It really is a "dog-eat-dog" world.
