    We documented a long distance movement of a juvenile male coyote (Canis latrines) between February 2002 and February 2003. The radiocollared coyote, last located in west central Montana, U.S.A. traveled ≥310 km to southwestern Alberta, Canada where it was trapped. This is the longest documented movement by a coyote in western North America.
