Coyotes out in the day time
by Lola Ross
Today I was on the phone in my kitchen looking out to my backyard. I was totally surprised by the appearance of a Coyote.
At first I thought maybe it was a dog, but as it came closer into my eye sight, it was obvious that the creature was a Coyote.
I was extremely surprised to see a Coyote in the park but also at 1:00 in the afternoon. I know that coyotes usually hunt around dusk.
I called my mother to the kitchen to verify that it was a Coyote. She couldn't believe it either.
The coyote paced back and forth for a little while, then turned his head and speed off towards the creek.
It was on a bike path that the city has put in through Sherwood Forest Park right neat the baseball diamonds. A lot of people walk their dogs in this area and let them off the leash.
I just hope people with little dogs are more careful.
Again this was on December 28th 2011, at 1:00 in the afternoon, in Sherwood Forest Park by the bike path and baseball diamonds.
