Are there black coyotes?
Have you seen a black coyote?
We are continuing to track the occurrence and location of melanistic coyotes, so if you ever see one and have photographic evidence of it, please let us know. We are also collecting tissue samples from these animals whenever possible and can provide detailed instructions along with tissue collecting kits. If you ever have access to a melanistic coyote, even if it’s one that has been killed by a vehicle collision, we would also ask you to contact us.
