One of the widest distributed wild canid in North America, coyotes can be found from Central America north through central Canada and into Alaska. Unlike its larger relative, the wolf, coyotes are less likely to form packs often hunting in pairs, or in family units depending on prey availability. Coyotes are quite adaptable and utilize a range of habitats including forests, clear cuts, prairie and farm land.
