COYOTES AREN’T DOGS, AND THEY DON’T CAT AROUND:  A new study by Ohio State researchers found that urban coyotes tracked over a 6-year period were 100% monogamous, never once messing around with anyone other than their mate. The scientists surmise that the fidelity is evolutionary, “Unlike the males of polygamous species, a male coyote ‘knows that every one of those pups is his offspring’ and has a clear genetic stake in helping them survive.”   Or maybe they’re just great guys.
