This... is an amazing photograph! The pose and the look of the coyote, just beautiful. :D I might just use it someday for a drawing reference or photomanipulation.

Thank you so much! :D I'm really glad that you like it ~ I found this guy to be very handsome, although most people seem to dislike coyotes. He was very curious of all the zoo patrons and was such a great subject for photos!

You're very welcome. :) And yeah he looks amazing. I don't really get it why so many people dislike coyotes, though I could say the same for wolves. It's probably fear.

The main reason many dislike coyotes is because in much of the world they are extremely overpopulated, dangerous pests. It's hard to deter them from livestock, and they'll jump high 'privacy fences' to steal domestic animals. They kill dogs and cats, have very little to no fear of humans, will walk right onto playgrounds. 

They are beautiful animals, sure. But there comes a point when beauty can't remain a saving grace. Just because something is pretty does not mean measures shouldn't be taken to protect us from it. The best measure in many regions is simply to lower the numbers; however, this has a positive impact on the coyotes as well.

When populations becomes too dense, not only does prey become scarce and territory harder to obtain, disease runs rampant. When you see a coyote with its hind end literally just open, rotting, festering wounds due to mange having caused it so much suffering, you'll understand why thinning their numbers becomes necessary. It's not just for us; it's for their sake as well.

I just happened to log in on my old account, and by now have begun to understand things like these much better, but I completely agree with your words! It's indeed best for both parties that way to keep the populations under control.
Thank you for explaining it!

Not a problem. Though I wish I had seen how old that original comment was before replying, haha.

I'll warn you now, this photo is graphic.… This is a local(Yes, local. I live in Alberta) coyote suffering from severe mange, and exactly the type of example I was speaking of. Fur gone, skin rotted open, large festering wound, definite suffering.

I enjoy educating whenever I can, especially when it comes to topics such as wildlife and hunting. Some hunting and population control is definitely necessary, depending wholly on the species and location.

Hope you have a good one.
