I met a coyote today. He was high-steppin’ through the sagebrush.
We saw each other at about the same time and he stopped to give me a look-see.
But even though he was young he was confident and quickly turned his attention to more important matters.
Many consider coyotes to be varmints. They can be scrawny & mangy-looking and certainly they pale in comparison to the majestic wolf.
But I find them fascinating.
Suddenly he took off through the thick brush as if on a mission. I figured he had detected a mouse or a ground squirrel scampering underneath.
:) But no – he found the nearest clearing and quickly squatted for a poop :)
