Coyotes -- working on a little video with TPWD...

So, I'm working on a short Texas Parks and Wildlife video about coyotes, and I've tried to get some good video footage of coyotes with no success...

Anyways, would anyone be willing to share some coyote images/footage with me that I could use for this video? I'll definitely credit any images! I'll be sending a few messages to folks that have observed coyotes in TX:

Thanks! :)

Oh -- and the video is specifically about how we can live with and among coyotes. It will give advice on how to minimize any conflicts.

I have a pack in the field behind my house. Also a coyote call. They usually call en masse on certain nights.They also come up to the back of the house with some regularity. They have a den on the side of a pond in a huge greenbrier thicket. What type of video are you wanting, activity wise? I don’t have anything but it might be fun to give it a try

Here is one, I have some more but it will take some time to dig them up. They will be similar quality.

What’s the best way to send them to you?

Not the best pics since he was pretty far away, but you are welcome to use any of our shots from the dam at Lewisville Lake: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/19539111 If any of those are of interest, we can supply the original, uncropped images.

Good luck. It sounds very interesting. Will it be on TPWD's weekly tv show?

Thanks so much everyone! I've gotten several good messages from folks -- if you have images/videos, you can also send them to me: sam.kieschnick@tpwd.texas.gov

This will be a short video that we'll post on the TPWD youtube page -- it'll be what I share with municipalities and homeowners when they're concerned about coyotes. So, the images and vids that you're sharing are super helpful in projecting this message! So many thanks. :)
