Image Description: Both loved and feared, the coyote is a familiar animal to people from most parts of the world, but it possesses a killer instinct that sometimes serves to make it a subject of fear, and even outright culling. This particular specimen is just a young pup, making it far more cute than intimidating, and its open-mouthed expression even manages to come off as a smile. While the background dominance of the roadway makes it difficult to tell with certainty, the dusty tundra off of the side of the road could indicate a rocky, desert-like environment, an area often beloved by coyotes, though they do frequently live in forested areas, as well.
