Coyote adults and pups and how they live.
Coyote in Utah they live in the west desert area and in urban farmlands and also the Rocky Mountains that stretch through the state. This predator is not well received by the farming community that raises livestock and are trapped and hunted especially in the spring when new calves are born. In the mountains the Coyote is strong enough to take down young deer and elk along with rabbits and rodents. They raise their young in dens which they have dug out in hillsides and farming ditches.
