In the 1920s, wolves were completely wiped out of Yellowstone Park. The coyote then became the top dog in the Park for 60 years. With the re-introduction of the wolf in 1995, coyotes went from top dog to underdog. In Yellowstone, we can best understand the coyote of the past, for it is here that the coyote must confront the grizzly, the mountain lion, and now the gray wolf, his closest relative, and now his most dangerous adversary.
Coyotes mate for life, with the male helping to feed, guard, and defend the pups. They eat mostly small rodents, mice, and voles. But in winter, they may survive mainly on the remains from wolf kills.
