MetadataShow full item record
Food habits of coyotes in southeastern New Brunswick were investigated during the fall and winter trapping seasons from 1979 to 1982. Based on analyses of 128 specimens, snowshoe hare, white-tailed deer and rodents accounted for 37.5, 27.9 and 27.3% of stomach contents receptively. These data indicate that the coyote shares a common food base with the red fox and the bobcat in the study area.
