Eastern Coyotes typically weigh 30-50 pounds and are 48-60 inches long, approximately twice the size of their close relative, theWestern Coyote. Eastern Coyotes have long legs, thick fur, a pointy snout, a drooping bushy black-tipped tail and range in color from a silvery gray to a grizzled, brownish red. The average life span of a wild coyote is only four years! Though coyotes areoften mistaken for a domestic dog hybrid, recent genetic research has attributed the Eastern Coyote's larger size and uniquebehavioral characteristics to interbreeding with Canadian Gray Wolves. Unlike the wolf or domestic dog, coyotes run with their tail pointing down. For those who call coyotes coydogs, it is a much misused term! There is currently no evidence to support that in the Northeast, and coydogs seem to be a common myth. In fact, current DNA sampling of coyote tissue in the Northeast showsno coyote/dog crosses what-so-ever. However, they do have a mixture of wolf DNA. - John Green, Warren, NH Photo
