Mom Still Reigns Supreme For Her Offspring

Here you see affection and strong eye contact between a young coyote, 20 months of age, and his mother — the bond is still very strong. I have learned that coyotes disperse sometime between the ages of one and three years of age. However, most young coyotes do not leave home until they are two years old, and three years is not unusual. Some, of course, remain forever as part of the original family pack. This family may be around a little longer than I had anticipated. But there is a possibility that a bullying sibling could drive the other sibling away.
