Rocky Mountain wildlife: Coyotes in a copulatory tie while a third looks on, Wyoming, USA

March 11, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Coyotes (Canis latrans) in a copulatory tie while a third coyote looks on, Wyoming, USA. Immediately after the two coyotes started copulating the third (larger) coyote) came running. This third coyote seemed to sniff and paw at the pair that were now in a copulatory tie. The presence and activities of the third coyote seemed to make at least one of the mating coyotes (perhaps the male) uncomfortable and he tried to walk away. However, the copulatory tie may last 15 minutes, half an hour or longer, so the mating animals cannot simply seperate. In the images below one of the mating coyotes (perhaps the male) walks a few steps, dragging the other (perhaps the female) on her back. The coyote that is being dragged has her mouth open (perhaps an indication of pain or an attempt to bite). Note: the images are heavily cropped as the coyotes were very far away.

Some large format prints (limited edition) are now for sale at Freshwater Studio & Gallery in Missoula, Montana.
