Intestinal Cleansing: Coyote Behavior

This is the second time in less than a week that I’ve seen a coyote eat grass. Only this time the process continued into a more elaborate behavior.  After eating the grass, only a few carefully selected blades, the coyote sat down and heaved. He heaved over and over, which created a rolling motion and slight pitching forwards over its entire body. At a certain point, the coyote stood up and upchucked the grass he had eaten. He looked around, selected one more bite of grass, “marked” the spot where he was and sauntered on off into the distance.
