This Guy Raising A Coyote In His Home Lives Life In The Fast Lane

Aside from their penchant to hop fences and obliterate small pets, I support coyotes. They generally will feed on rodents, but they certainly aren’t going to shy away from putting paws on a deer or two. Whatever your opinion, you have to respect their ability to adapt and scavenge. They’re survivors in every sense of the word. So much so, that one of my major issues with AMC’s “The Walking Dead” is the noticeable lack of coyote. Like, where the fuck are they, man?

But yeah, like the American wolf, you could say I have a soft spot for their relative, the coyote. But the real question is, would I raise one in my home? Because this guy is, and he’s got a cat in there too which seems like it may end poorly.

Honestly, that’s the most regal coyote you’re ever going to see. Healthy weight and a strong coat. You can tell it’s been off the streets for a while.

This is what worries me. Natasha is tossing that cat around like a rag doll. I know the video ends with some playful banter, but Natasha has killer in her blood. It’s only a matter of time. Hope I’m wrong.

Holy shit. He’s feeding this beast almonds. That’s a decent amount of protein and a respectable amount of healthy fats. May as well feed her a drifter or two while you’re at it, because at this rate she’s going to need human flesh to be satisfied. I don’t know what he’s thinking.

A lot of people don’t know this, but coyotes often sleep with both eyes open when they’re stressed. You can tell Natasha has a lot on her mind. She probably feels guilty that she’s had so many blessings bestowed upon her while so many others out there are scavenging through alleys looking for scraps.

I will continue to monitor Natasha’s situation closely.
