First time Coyote experience
(Brampton, Ontario, Canada)
Like many, I have known that urban areas can and do share their areas with Coyotes.
I have yet to see any, but nevertheless, I had my first experience on Friday morning at 4:53 a.m. when I was awoken out of a sound sleep by an eerie howling, barking and yipping.
Other than hearing this in the media, this was the first time I heard these sounds. It was so loud, I could have sworn they were in the back of my home. It truly scared me and my heart was racing.
We heard it again, Friday night and this morning about 6:00 a.m., although I think they have moved on as it wasn't as loud or long......
The only question that I wanted to know but cannot find the answer, is what is the outermost range that you can hear this Coyote communication.
They say you can hear a lion's roar up to 25 miles away. What is the Coyotes range?I'm not sure, but perhaps one of our readers will know.
I guess it might depend upon conditions of weather and so on, whether there are trees around, or whether it is humid or damp (I find sound travels more when there is moisture in the air, but that might just be me!)
