Look what my husband and I saw in our front yard this morning as we were heading to work. Okay, he wasn't IN our front yard, but he was in the grassy, green open space next to our yard. DH tried to get some pictures of him, but he was far enough away they didn't turn out that great.
Can you tell what he is? No? Look at this one then.
Still no? Then here, look at this one!
Yeah, that's a coyote. IN MY FRONT YARD!!!!
I was so glad the dogs were inside for the day. I have heard that coyotes roam these parts, and a coworker has encountered them face-to-face when he was out walking his dog at night once, but this is the first time I have seen one not in a zoo setting, and it was right by my house!
He was cute and all, but he had better stay the deuce away from my baby, dogs, and yard. Otherwise he won't think I am so cute.
I kind of felt bad for him cause the guy obviously had some serious flea issues. I wished he was friendly so I could take care of him, but I know better.
Just stay away little dude. Let's admire each other from a distance, okay?
I have now come across a bobcat and a coyote near my house, and I don't live in the woods people!
