They've also been known to go inside doggy doors during the night to get little dogs and cats in people's houses.
Silver's only 40 pounds with no muscle mass and zero survival instincts.
Wow that is so scary O.o
Can you imagine Waking up in the middle of the night & going out to get a glass of water to find a coyote in your house? O.o
Once I was walking to school & saw a coyote come out of the woods by my house. I don't like in a big city but I'm no where near where you'd expect to see a coyote... It just crossed the street, looked over at me & ran away.
They are afraid of people since were a lot bigger... Right?
The shelter I volunteered at found a coyote wolf hybrid running down a busy road about a year ago. He's a very sweet little guy, very shy.
