This just trotted through my yard.
I’ve seen them at dawn, and I’ve seen yellow eyes reflected at night, but I have never seen one in broad daylight like this.
She didn’t seem to care when we went outside onto the deck to look at her or that the dog was barking in the house.
Pretty sure the dog is safe from a single coyote. He is old and doesn’t move so fast anymore, but he still outweighs a coyote by twenty pounds, so they should leave him alone unless there is a pack. I’ve never seen more than one at a time around here and we don’t live on the edge of the woods.
