Coyote - The Meadow - Parc Oméga

The Meadow

By following the Omega Park trail you will encounter coyotes. This smart and playful canid covers a vast territory in North America. It has finer lines than the wolf. Its body is also punier. It has black long slender muzzle and broad pointy ears.

The coyote lives in family, and females give birth to three to eight young ones 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 meter wide). Moreover, many other burrows will be found by the female to hide her young in case of danger. The coyote generally hunts small wild mammals but, unfortunately for farmers, it can also attack domestic animals.
