When it comes to Yellowstone everyone thinks about the iconic critters, like the wolves and grizzly bears, but the ones that are around most often are the ones that get overlooked. Coyote’s are a great example. While they roam throughout the whole park they are rarely seen in family groups but can be seen as in both groups and singles. While they are mostly scavengers they do go after mice, rabbits and other small game.
The coyotes have been quite active this winter with multiple sightings of multiple individuals. The downside of coyotes in the park is that they tend to be a little shy.
