Albino Coyote

Don't know where to find one or what they are worth but I do know someone that has a mounted melanistic (black) coyote which I believe is even more rare.

I think they are rare

We handle a couple of blacks each year, not true melanism, but the black phase but I havent ever seen a true albino...yet. I would say it would be worth something to someone wanting a special animal, but I doubt it would have any other value. I would love to have a picture of one if you have it.


Black Coyote

I have seen several "black" coyotes from my area. I believe they are coy-dog crosses. I even received a brown coy-dog last year. I was glad he only wanted the head mounted after I saw those white paws! How about bobcat/house cat crosses? I know they exist, I saw one (dead) many moons ago. I regret not saving it and would love to have one now.
