- A medium-sized dog-like creature. It is sly, and groups can be heard howling in the night.
Coyotes are small and rare canine animals found in packs of two to ten in most biomes, except tropical and freezing ones. Half the size of a dog or wolf, coyotes aren't aggressive and will generally avoid dwarves despite being carnivorous, preferring to simply meander around the area aimlessly. A juvenile coyote is called a pup.
Coyotes can be captured in cage traps and trained into exotic pets. They aren't trainable for war or hunting and give roughly less returns than dogs when butchered, but their parts are worth twice more than those of common animals. Due to their low frequency rate, however, they make poor choices for livestock as you may not even encounter them at all.
Some dwarves like coyotes for their howling.

Coyotes are well known for eating only very fast birds, and they will frequently try and lay slightly overblown traps to catch them, only for the trap to fail spectacularly and nail the coyote instead, not unlike what happens with some dwarven settlements. As a result, some dwarves tend to see the coyote as kin, a brotherhood of bad luck, if you will.
