GarLyn Zoo in Michigan's Beautiful Upper Peninsula

 

Coyote

Two coyote at GarLyn Zoo

     We have two coyote at GarLyn Zoo Wildlife Park. The female was born in captivity and the male was a rescue after dogs killed the mother and dug up the den killing the other pups of his litter. In past years we have bred coyote and even managed to send one to a zoo in Japan. Coyote are a naturally shy animal. I find coyote to be more dog like than I thought they were. I no longer think of coyote as just a varmint animal. Although the ones that come in at night after the birds don't rate very high on my list. Our coyotes are fed a high protein meat base dog food, chicken, and small mammals when available. Coyote do produce a powerful musk smell in their urine as do fox, but much stronger than that of fox. Similar to skunk spray in smell but not quite as strong and is only present in the immediate area.
