Dominant Male Coyote Behavior

The coyote males I have seen tend, for the most part, to be young and betas. The one dominant male I did come across kept a substantial distance away from me, and engaged in bucking and angry ground scratching: a warning display to scare me off. However, I received a comment which describes someone else’s experience with a dominant male coyote during pupping season, along with possible exacerbating provocations which might have seemed threatening to the coyote. It is very interesting to read about the behavior and the circumstances. I’ve created a link here to that comment by Charles Wood: Dominant Male Coyote Behavior.
