I was working in front of the house this morning when my neighbor came out on his porch and said, "Hey, is that a fox?!" He pointed across the street.
I looked. "Whoa! That's not a fox! That's a coyote!"
I ran inside, grabbed my camera and gave chase. Wily guy, with a pronounced limp. He probably had been hit by a car, but he was trucking pretty well nonetheless. I couldn't approach close enough to get anything beyond these craptastic photos on zoom. One in a front yard, and another in the alley.
He was moving at a pretty good clip south. I know coyotes are considered vermin, but I'm hoping this one was able to make it somewhere safe without getting hit again. He'd already beaten some serious odds to join my life list of city critters.
