Coyotes are charismatic.

They are also among the best adapted predators out there.

PS: Dragging the 300/2.8 lens to the zoo was well worth the inconvenience.

    One ate my barn cat. Now it’s shoot on sight.

      I have a cat who likes to go outside, so they aren’t welcome at the house either. But they look very fine at the zoo.

        Oh I don’t blame the coyote for being a coyote. I just think they get too used to humans. My silly neighbor was feeding them and then was surprised when they started taking her goats.

        My wife thought they were german shepard mixes at first.

    They are utterly effective predators.

    I abhor violence. I hate to kill. I don’t hunt. Coyotes come down off the ridge in the winter and spring after the calves and lambs. That means they are trying to take potential sandwiches out of my refrigerator. I’ll not have any of that. Rifles are awesome.

    I admire coyotes for their adaptability and cunning. I’m also wary of coyotes for their adaptability and cunning. I like to watch them, but if it comes down to me or mine, or a coyote…

    Sorry, Howell.

    Ever read S.M. Stirling’s Fifth Millenium series? The Kommanza had a godlet named Glitch, Godlet of Fuckups. He was represented as a sitting coyote with six arms.

    He was the only deity to whom people preyed “PLEASE ignore me and mine!”

    Been a coyote hunter for years and as smart and as adaptive as they are it still surprises me when I can call one in.
