“Coyotes are not lucky enough to get a lot of love, even from some otherwise caring pet owners. Canada Goose, an outerwear company that has become insanely popular in the past few years, traps and skins coyotes to use their fur for lining. Their customers — including dog lovers like Emma Stone, proud mom to a rescue golden retriever— don’t seem to think twice about who they’re wearing.”
A professional photographer Pamela Underhill Karaz snapped these stunning photographs of a coyote who was playing in the backyard of her home in Trenton Falls, New York. The photographer showed that the curious visitor picked up one of the family dog’s old toys and, began playing with it.
The photographer says that Coyotes are like dogs. They are caring, they love to play, and they crave comfort and safety. If you treat them well, then they will treat you like you deserve to be treated.
“This silly, playful side of the coyote, a playfulness that we often see in our own dogs but rarely get to witness in wild animals, is such a wonderful reminder that there is more to this canid than the stories making them all out to be villains,” she told The Dodo
The photographer invites everyone to get to know these animals a little better. She says that the more you know a Coyote, the less excited you will be for wearing one of those winter coats made of their fur. That is the reason why she released the photos of these Coyote as the “Toy Thief” She wants to challenge misconceptions about these creatures. “He has a personality, he has feelings, he does the best he can to survive in what is often an unfriendly world,” she told The Dodo, “and, he too likes to play.”
