Coyote pup magnet. The coyote is known for its vocalizations, the most distinct at dusk, dawn, or at night. The young are born in April or May in a crevice or underground burrow. If the den is disturbed, the female will move her pups to a new home. They are blind and defenseless at birth and will emerge from the den at 2-3 weeks; they are independent at 6-9 months.
