A Coyote Pup

North American Wildlife

Coyote pup (Canis latrans).  The coyote is know for its vocalizations, the most distinct at dusk, dawn or at night.  The young are born in April or May in a crevice or underground burrow.  If the den is disturbed, the female will move her pups to a new home. They are blind and defenseless at birth and will emerge from the den at 2-3 weeks.  They become independent at 6-9 months.
