Yup, It's a Coyote

The neighbor thought he saw a coyote last week.

He was right. It trotted through the yard, south-westbound, early yesterday evening.

Looked pretty well-fed.

They are everywhere. When I left the state in 1974, coyotes were unheard of in these parts. Not so much now. I saw one a few years ago crossing Lake Parkway like he owned it.

Yup, Paul, it's still alive.

The .30-30 wasn't near the back porch.

Coyotes are common in my new neighborhood, especially around the jackrabbit-rich golf course. They don't seem to have much luck with the roadrunners, as far as I can tell.

There are noticeably less bunnies this year.

Also--and good news--there USED to be a few stray cats in the area. Haven't seen them lately.

Heh.

Oh man... I see a coyote and I have a new rug, or table dressing!

I saw one in the middle of Milwaukee last week. Oklahoma Ave. by Humboldt Park. Middle of the day. I see them, maybe, two to three times a year in the city, usually at night. This one was kind of mangy.

Heh. The people of Franklin sent that one up to your neighborhood...
