Keywords:Coywolf, Eastern Coyote, Canis latrans × lycaon, breeding male, double litter, multiple litters, reproduction
AbstractPrevious research on my Cape Cod, Massachusetts study site documented the killing of a breeding male Coywolf (Canis latrans x lycaon; also called Eastern Coyote) and a subsequent increase in local pack density one year later. This study documents double-litters produced in two packs following the death or disappearance of the original breeding male.
