Jumping strategy
Coyotes have a clever way of hunting during winter. They move through snowy areas, keeping an ear out for sounds of life beneath the snow. When they hear something interesting, they stop and tilt their heads to figure out exactly where the sound is coming from. Once they confirm it's a rodent making the noise, the coyotes jump, using their noses to break through the snow and their sharp teeth to grab the prey. This smart approach lets coyotes, like the one in the picture, catch several rodents in under an hour.
