One coyote, near Perrytown, Northumberland County

It was around 9:00 am. I had turned left from County Road 10 onto Line Road 7.


By the first field, a single Coyote emerged from the ditch on the right, loped across the road and jumped the fence of the field to the left.

I stopped as soon as I spotted it to avoid hitting it, but it didn't seem fazed by my vehicle and didn't hurry across the road.

It's behaviour gave me no reason to be alarmed; however, I admit that I was in a car and so can't judge it's potential reaction to an exposed human.

I wanted to thank the people who wrote this article for presenting the facts and doing so in a non-biased, non-fear-promoting way.

Best article I've seen on Coyotes in a long time.
