Coyote Stalking

“I get up every morning determined to both change the world and to have one hell of a good time. Sometimes, this makes planning the day difficult.”  
~E. B. White

I tried to get photos of a coyote in our pasture using my telephoto but even with the tele, I couldn’t get enough zoom.

Java chased a coyote the other day the full length of the pasture until she saw she was outrun. She makes a nervous wreck out of me sometimes… Can’t wait until I can start working with the training collar actually turned on.

Here’s a video of Java swimming after a ball, a much safer pastime than coyote chasing.

  1. Yikes! Coyotes scare me! We have them around, but have never seen one, I can only hear them. They were awfully close a couple months ago. Java needs to stay away from them! I have heard that coyotes are good at luring dogs out, so they can attack them. Freaks me out.
    If only Sadie had a pool that big! She’d be lovin’ life right now, in this heat we are having! Java is so darn cute, frisbee catching, pool swimming addict!

  2. Yes, my sister in Arizona taught me how dangerous coyotes can be for dogs. I try to keep Java always close to me, but when she takes off after one, all I can do is keep calling her until she comes back. Well, plus some silly chasing (this last time in my slippers) to wrestle that coyote with my bare hands if I have to.

  3. Hey, a coyote’s got to make a living too y’know. I don’t want one close to me or my pets, but they sure are beautiful highly adaptive creatures and I appreciate them on that level.
