These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Complete Monster: Dag, the leader of the pack of coyotes. Unlike the other coyotes who kill for food, Dag seems to get more out of killing than he probably should. This is shown when he shows a group of chickens his chain which has severed chicken legs on it. When faced with Otis's father Ben, he murders him and then shames Otis by telling him that his father would've survived had he been there for him. He then makes a compromise with Otis that states that he and his pack of coyotes would only get a couple of animals every night, but if Otis didn't comply, Dag and his coyotes would personally slaughter everything in the farm that he held dear. He then tries to spitefully eat the young chick Maddy just because she referred to him as a "meaner."
