Too Sad

Coyotes are extremely loyal to their mates. If one is caught in a trap, the other will bring small game for it to eat; it will soak itself in a river to allow its thirsty mate to chew on its damp fur for water. It has been documented that the free coyote will stay with its captive partner until death.

We used to have a big open field behind us and we'd see the coyotes trotting by from time to time. And the quail and jack rabbits which were their lunch.

Oh that is sad! But how loyal.

And people say they're just animals.
That kind of love and loyalty doesn't always exist in the "human" world.

There is much to learn from the animal kingdom, isn't there?

Awww. I've seen a coyote here, and hear them howl every once in a while. Very cool.
