The coyote (Canis Latrans), also known as the American jackal, Brush wolf, or Prairie wolf, is a canine native to much of North America and Central America. Its closest relatives are gray wolves and jackals. Bears, cougars, and wolves are the natural predator of coyotes. Although there are hybrids of wolves and coyotes called "Coywolves or Woyotes." The nominate subspecies is the Plains coyote. They can be found everywhere throughout the Continental United States and Alaska. They even live in Wisconsin, my home state. They are more closely related to jackals because they are both wolf/fox-like. Their habitats are the plains, forests, mountains, deserts, and suburban environments. Other North American canines include Gray wolves, Red wolves, Eastern wolves, Dire wolves, Red foxes, Swift foxes, Kit foxes, Arctic foxes, Gray foxes, Island foxes, and Dholes. Coyotes are also claimed to be a hybrid of a gray wolf and golden jackal. You can kinda see that coyotes are related to jackals. There are mythical coyote creatures called mangy coyotes in Russia.
