Coyotes are very resilient and adaptive to man's intrusion into what was once their environment.

They have adapted so well that they now live in cities as well as the countryside throughout America. They are very elusive and nocturnal and many times people do not even know that they live among them.

However adaptive they are sometimes they can find themselves in desperate situations where they are at the mercy of someone to help them. Such was the case recently where a coyote became entangled in a barb wire fence with no way of freeing itself.

Luckily for the coyote, a man comes along and sees him stuck and bleeding in the fence. With a pair of wire cutters the man begins to cut each strand of wire until finally the coyote is free and runs off.

Although the coyote had been cut on the fence, once free he seemed just fine. Off he ran to live another day thanks to a man who stopped and took the time to help him.

Note: Coyotes are smaller than wolves and are sometimes called prairie wolves or brush wolves. They communicate with a distinctive call, which at night often develops into a raucous canine chorus.

    This morning, I left my home heading towards the freeway when I saw what looked like a coyote laying in the grass--sadly he was dead--he had probably been ran over during the night. The cities have taken over their homes, and they have no where to go. It makes me sad. God bless this man for not letting fear get in the way of helping out this precious animals.

    I think this was a life-changing experience for both you and the coyote. He was so terrified he could only wait and didn't try to lash out at you. I saw trust going on with both of you....awesome!

  45. wakinyan win, congratulations on winning the Brainless Ayhole of the Day award! There's always at least one dork in the crowd with negative - and incredibly stupid - comments, and you're it. No one "films" in the age of digital recording, he set his own camera or cell phone down to record it, and animals "more than capable" of jumping barbed wire fences become trapped in them every day. Fortunately, you are only a SMALL minority who can't appreciate the kindness of the man who freed the coyote.

    Mr., you are brave and decent. How is it that you were willing to risk danger to save this hopelessly snared predator and others would be happy to torture it to death? What blackness resides in their souls. You are light. You are hope. Thank you! <3 :-)

    Barbed wire should be banned completely and why not put together work teams to take them all down?? A decision could be taken very quickly and put a date to when they all have to be gone or heavy fines if not taken down!!! There are so many decisions our elected could take that would change so much!! Like total ban on fur (trapping, hunting or breeding) NOBODY need to wear fur to stay warm, so much suffering for VANITY and fashion! Well done to liberate the coyote!!!! Help to change society now!!!
