Coyote tracks are often confused with dog paw prints, but there are subtle distinctions between the two. For instance, coyote tracks have more of an oval shape than the footprints of domestic canines, and their front feet are larger than their hind feet.

Longer than they are wide, coyote prints usually measure two and a half inches in length and two inches in width. Coyotes leave distinct claw marks, as the outer toes on both the front and back feet are longer than the inner toes.


Finding coyote tracks is a telltale sign that the pests are nearby. Their presence is alarming because the pests can carry various diseases and parasites harmful to humans and domestic dogs. Coyotes also prey on small pets that are left unattended and forage in gardens looking for fruits and vegetables.

Control & Removal

Property owners can erect fences to help keep coyotes out. Limit their access to food by securing garbage cans with tight-fitting lids and keeping pet food inside. To ensure the safety of house residents, pets, and property, individuals should contact a trained wildlife professional immediately after finding coyote tracks. Critter Control wildlife specialists have the tools and training to safely and humanely remove coyotes from neighborhoods.
