Coyote in the Guelph Quarry

(Guelph, Ontario )
Today two of my friends and I went for a walk in the Guelph quarry, we went in there a couple weeks ago for the first time because we were curious as to how big that place really was.
When we walk through there we stay above the cliffs in the long grass fields, and so far both times we have seen about 18 White Tail Deer.
But today was a little different because we ended up following a couple tracks that we thought were just fox tracks.
As we got to the far end of the field (where the street Collage would be on the other side of the fence) we were about to turn around to leave.
Right as we stopped to turn around the Coyote was moving at a good pace about 50 feet from us in the opposite direction from us.
This Coyote looked pretty big, we thought it was a dog at first, but it looked exactly like the one in the picture on this site.
The Coyote that we saw looked to be at least 45 - 55 pounds and it was about 3:00 in the afternoon.
