Coyotes can be found and hunted in Blaine County. If the protagonist approaches the coyote flees in the opposite direction. They can be run over along with shot and/or beaten to death. If you shoot a coyote in the leg, it can limit its mobility; only being able to walk instead of run.
- Coyotes mostly travel in packs and are mostly found in desert regions such as Sandy Shores, although they can be found in other areas of the map.
- Coyotes were also featured in Rockstar San Diego's game Red Dead Redemption. These coyotes also travel in packs were mostly passive, but would often attack the player unlike the coyotes featured in the game.
- If Trevor Philips runs over a coyote he will sometimes say "looks like we're having coyote for dinner".
