My neighbor Ben took this photo on his way to work yesterday morning. It’s a bit fuzzy, but that is a coyote in the middle of our street. Possibly it is a member of the pack of which I posted photos from my backyard earlier this year.
Coyote interactions with humans seem to be on the increase. I have heard a lot of anecdotal evidence lately of people seeing them in DAYLIGHT walking down the middle of their street. That is probably a sign that these animals are getting more and more comfortable with humans- not a good thing if we want to avoid confrontations.
Just this past week here at work, a coyote was roaming the grounds during the day. A few coworkers claim that the coyote was stalking them, although I’d have to see that to believe it. Unfortunately for the coyote, it was captured and will likely be euthanized.
