The Shapeshifter

Show Summary

The Shapeshifter is a documentary story on coyotes by Canadian Geographic. For years human's have tried to get rid of the excess coyote population in North America, unsuccessfully. In Yellowstone park, the rangers decided to re-introduce wolves in order to keep the coyote population in check. This move provided an 80% drop in coyotes within the park, although leading to more animal deaths due to the wolves ravenous nature. However, the coyotes have shown their cunning, leading to a population that now exist as 'super coyotes' with much smarter senses, and thus other predatory animals and humans are having a much harder time in actually finding the coyotes in the park. The Wolves which tend to hunt in packs are now stalked by cunning coyotes in order to eat their left-overs. Modern coyotes have even began mating outside of their own species, mating with Eastern Wolves creating a hybrid with enhanced hunting skills. In years gone by Indian tribes understood the coyote, nick-naming them 'The Shapeshifter' this documentary shows why.moreless
