    They do look a bit like a coyote. Coyotes can cross with eastern timber wolves here and create what are known as coy-wolves. Extremely intelligent and adaptable, they have been found colonizing cities – including NYC. Oregon Public Broadcasting ran a segment on them last year.

      Nah, generally not. Although the aboriginals kept them as pets, and there are people who have domesticated them. But not in the wild…

    Hey, Baz – I was thinking about our coyotes, we have here in the Rocky Mountains. Some of them are big old suckers. And they can be dangerous. I get the impression that Dingos are quite a bit more fiercer than our coyotes. We also have our wolves (bigger, more intimidating) and we have fox (smaller, less of a threat to dogs, unless they are smaller dogs. Is there any comparison between a coyote and a dingo? This dingo looks a great deal more elegant than our mangy coyotes. Most folks don’t like coyotes in these parts. Good post, as usual.
