The coyote has interbred with both wolves and dogs leading to development of coy wolves and coy dogs. Each species is especially well suited for living near humans since it neither fears humans and happily scavenges what people unintentionally leave behind.
The coyote population is widespread, almost in every state. The animal is sometimes considered a nuisance by those raising chickens, rabbits, or other small animals since the coyote will often take advantage of dinner in a box. They also shown a preference for eating cats and small dogs too. This shows their opportunistic side. Once while driving, I witnessed two coyotes pull a yearling cow off the road after it had been hit by a truck. Not only did they demonstrate strength, but determination.
If you live in the country, you’ve probably heard the coyote’s yipping. This species is the most vocal of all North American mammals. It is known for both its single yip or a long string of yips. The call of the coyote is often mistaken for that of a wolf. A coyote person is opinionated and not afraid of making his voice heard.
Native Americans had many stories about coyote, the name was often thought to mean animal. In the tales, coyote could often walk right upright. He brought both wisdom and trickery when he arrived. Coyote appears in creation myths and is portrayed as being a jokester and a liar. This leads to a quandary how do you know if coyote is imparting wisdom or just playing a joke.
Whenever a coyote crosses your path it could be a sign not to take yourself so serious. It could also be a warning to take a step back and look at the situation from another perspective. Even though the coyote is social and verbal, his message is anything, but direct.
If you dream of a coyote, it could mean you’re a survivor like the animal. On the other hand, coyote is a trickster, which can mean you’re being tricked or deceived. Consider your situation as analyze your dream.
