A Lone Mangy CoyotePosted by Kirk Mona in: coyote photos
The pack of three coyotes visiting the dead deer in our prairie at work are beautiful. They seem healthy, their coats look to be in excellent shape, in short, they look great.
This weekend though, someone else showed up on the motion activated camera. On Saturday, the camera caught this lone coyote at the deer. It came at 10:40 in the morning. I'm being a little unfair to call it mangy. I don't think it really has mange but look at that tail. Not the pretty bottle shaped tail normally associated with a coyote.
I don't think this is one of the three we've been seeing. Very interesting. Also interesting that it was there at 10:44 am. Nice to get some daytime shots.
We now have two cameras up, one still, one video. I'll check soon to see if we captured anything and report back.
