I've seen animals do many strange things,, yesterday evening about 6PM totally amazed me.. I'm sitting on the porch watching the kids and chickens play,,I look down the drive way, there is a coyote 50 yards away,, in the wide open atleast 40 yards from the woods or any cover, if thats not bold enough,,,, This thing was hopping side to side like a puppy waiting for someone to toss him a ball. It paid no attention to me when I got up, walked 15' towards him to the door and grabbed my 10 Ga. Or when I yelled at the kids to hold their ears. He was in good shape, nice pelt, about 30 lbs. the only thing I could see wrong with him was the seven OO holes in him. Then I got the backhoe and burried it with the rest of the unwanteds. Is it my imagination or did I watch my kids and birds being stalked????
