This is the heartwarming story of five orphaned coyote pups who survived the summer without their parents. We visited these adorable pups several times to monitor their progress. On our final visit they did not appear until after sundown. This video includes rare, night-vision footage. It is haunting, as they moved before our camera like ghostly spirits in the dark.
Coyotes play a critical role in keeping a balance in the food chain. They regulate smaller predator populations (e.g., mesopredators like foxes, opossums and raccoons), which in turn allows mesopredators' smaller prey (e.g., bird species) to survive. Without this balance, many species are at risk.
Currently a war is being waged on coyotes and other vital native predators by "wildlife management" agencies. Their approach threatens the balance of nature and harms innocent wildlife, pets and humans in the process. You can help stop this war by sharing this video with your friends and families and supporting our work.

We are grateful to Cassandra Robertson for lending her amazing musical talents to this video. Cassandra worked with us on our "End Federal Trapping At Oregon State University" video, which inspired her to write "Coyote Call."
