Coyote Top Speed


42.9 mph

69 km/h

Coyotes can be found almost everywhere in North America in the last hundred years they followed roads and railways from remote wilderness though urban jungles all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. A new predator hadn’t been introduced in the Eastern North America for a century until the coyote arrived and from here to the Pacific coast maybe 20 million of them. Coyotes are nature’s most adaptable species but outside the protection of parks humans killed off almost all of North America’s wolves allowing the cunning coyote to move right in. Today the war of survival continues except now the battlefield is an entire continent and coyotes are turning up in the most unlikely places.
