Coyote In My Backyard
January 2013 - I was adding ice to my backyard hockey rink when I thought I noticed something out of the corner of my eye.
Sure enough I looked up and noticed what looked like a dog, however it had that very distinctive longer body. It was a Coyote walking through my backyard.
We live off some farm land in Blair, Ontario, and are also surrounded by untouched green spaces.
We have seen Deer in the backyard on a few occasions as well.
Although I have heard the Coyote's howling and screeching during summer nights beyond the bush, I have never seen one.
This was a single Coyote that strolled through my back yard. He paused for about 5 seconds when he noticed me, then continued to stroll on through.
Maybe it's time for that fence!
