We've all heard the old saying that after a while, pets and their owners begin to resemble each other. But can something like this happen in the wild? Can an untamed animal and a human mimic each other? In this edition of What's in a Song, Weekend Edition Sunday's occasional series from the Western Folklife Center, we meet Greg Keeler, a man from Montana who's observed such behavior. He wrote a song about it, called "Coyotes and Cowboys."
