Coyotes In The Wild - Poem by Chuck Toll
Coyote thrive because they are not picky
About their diet. What they find, they eat:
Mice, snakes, bugs, frogs, and for a treat
Berries or cactus pears so sweet and sticky
Relaxed and clever scavengers since youth,
They love their daily outings, staying clear
Of ornery prey like cattle, elk and deer
With sufficient size to harm by horn or hoof.
Coyotes also know to keep away
From carnivores that might eat them instead.
But puma, wolf and bear hides tacked on sheds
Suggest a single threat remains today.
Coyotes are on the run, some ranchers think.
But who will adapt, who more apt to go extinct?
