Welcome to my new feature - Coyote Facts.
Learn while you can before I either run out of facts or get bored with it.
The range of the coyote in North America before the europeans showed up was limited to an area between the Rockies and Sierras and south to where the US/Mexico border supposedly is today. Yes, they extended down into Mexico but I'm talking Norte Americana, Senor. They also inhabited a thin strip of the Canadian prairie just north of the border.
By 1940, they extended into western Canada, up into southern Alaska and into the Great Lakes region in both the US and Canada.
Today, you can find the mangy motherfuckers all along southern to mid-Canada from coast to coast, and every state of the Union except Hawaii and just as soon as I can figure out how to get a couple of breeding pairs over there, we'll have some fine coyote hunting right there in Wakiki too.
