Also don't forget that while a coyote attacks basically just with its
jaws, a Velocirator (like a cat) has jaws, clawed forelimbs and very
clawed hindlibs. When you think of the damage that even a house-cat
can do when it's angry, I really don't think you'd want to mess with a
Velociraptor, even a lone one.
