Rudy the thief
Coyote had met a friend he knew when he was a pup, Rudy the thief. Rudy the thief never hunted, but stole his meat from others or took what was left. He had no compunction about entering a pack’s territory or even the core area. The rumor was that he had been caught entering a den where there were pups, the sacred ground, to steal food from their mouths. He had plenty of scars and had lost an eye and was a braggart who talked loudly and was aggressive, but only in talk. Coyote liked Rudy the thief because he made him laugh.
