California Coyotes have a single annual breeding season, which runs from late January to early March.
Coyotes have a gestation period of 60 to 63 days, an average of about six pups is born in a burrow. The litter may be anywhere from 1 to 19 pups!
The female will stay in the den during gestation and to raise the pups. It is important to be aware that they will protect their den.
If they mate in January, pups can be expected as early as March. At this point the male will hunt for food. Later the male and female will take shifts hunting for food to feed their pups taking turns at times to hunt at night and day.
If any new neighbors have moved into your neighborhood, please kindly inform them of the risks of leaving their pets out, to not leave food around and to take caution when walking their dogs.
