When I was 8 years old, my father brought home a coyote pup someone had taken from the wild. She was only about 7 weeks old. Efforts to rehab her to the wild failed, we always blamed it on Mom's pancakes with honey, can't get those in the wild! Growing up with a coyote is an interesting experience. I think it gave me a special insight into an animal's mind and reactions. It also started my life long facination with animal behavior. While I am not trained, I've been lucky enough to just observe lots of different species. I'm not influenced by scientific theories, I just live with them and watch what they do. I've seen many amazing things I'd love to share.
