Photo Essay: Coyote Breeding Season Dances

As we are deep in the Winter, and the next season, Spring is getting closer, exciting events are taking place in the wild.

Coyotes are looking for mates and existing breeding pairs are starting to have their “breeding season dances.”

You never want to miss these weeks.

Listening these “song dogs” is one remarkable sound in the wild.

But to see their mating body languages is another.

They look playful with lots of jumping and circling around, the females are looking a little grouchy at first, but soon the gentle calmer behavior is showing acceptance, and they are moving along.

Together.

Giving the hope for the new generations to come 2 months later.

Personally, I can’t wait. —Krisztina Gayler

Thank you for the beautiful Coyote breeding season dances photographs. I live in Maine and part of a group of Maine Coyote advocates that are contacting state legislators about supporting a bill soon to be introduced, that will make changes to Coyote hunting laws, and also the need to end the Coyote Killing contests in our state. Your photos have truly captured the beauty of this wonderful song dog, a keystone carnivore that is part of our ecosystem.
