Coyotes

Even knowing something was there – because the mustangs all had alerted – it took a while for me to locate these two coyotes on the snowy hillside of bachelor ridge in Spring Creek Basin. They’re hunted mercilessly in this part of the country, but I enjoy seeing them. They’re no threat to the wily mustangs. 🙂

And they’re actually no threat to cattle, either, and are helpful in controlling populations of smaller critters that dig big holes, and and and… Great pic!

I love these “dogs,” and yes,TJ, they are hunted mercilessly. I don’t understand it, but I’m always encouraged by how resilient they are. They look good on that hill! 🙂

Good mousing! Love coyotes. Seriously. When I worked with a national group, I rescued one 40 years ago Unfortunately, she couldn’t be re-released as an adult. But lived to age 14 in comfort. I met many interesting people through her, including 103 year old Lila Brooks, the ‘Coyote Lady’ in CA. I then rescued a coydog, whom I had for 11 years. She too was an interesting canine. Far safer around livestock than my neighbors dogs and my shepherds and many domestic breeds of dogs.
