Asked in Coyotes
How do coyotes kill other prey?
Coyotes eat any small animal they can catch, such as mice, gophers, rate, squirrels, snakes, lizards, beavers, rabbits, fish, bird and dead animal carcasses. They will even stalk and pounce on grasshoppers and in the spring they will eat fawns if they can catch them. Coyotes will also eat dog food, get in your garbage, eat your garden or crops, and attack livestock, chickens and pets, especially cats. They hunt mostly at night, but will occasionally hunt during the day. When you hear a pack of coyotes howling in the distance, you can be fairly sure food has been found. Howling is the way they let other coyotes know there's food available. They spread out and hunt, and when one finds something to eat, he will howl to let the others know. So you may sometimes hear a lone howl. And when they reunite, you will usually hear the entire group howling and yelping. Coyotes stalk their prey, and when they see the chance to pounce, they pounce, disabling the animal immediately.
