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.
