Where I live people generally consider COYOTES (pronounced ky-otes around here) to be a nuisance. If you have chickens or any kind of yard fowl then they really can be, I personally think they're really cool.
It's fun to sit outside at night and occasionally get to hear a few of them howling at the moon. They're more yelpy than a WOLF.
The point of this post is mostly that I just like COYOTES.
