Warning! Coyote Sighting
Posted by Francesca
The farm that we live on in Bedford, New York, is made up of 153-acres. There are lots of pastures and woodlands and all kinds of wildlife live there. There has been some talk lately about coyotes at the farm. The consensus is that a coyote population is a good thing, except for small animals. Sharkey and I were instructed never to wander off very far by ourselves, and having caught a glimpse of this healthy-looking guy, we understand the reason. We'll be staying close to home except when accompanied by a strong guardian.
1 Sharkey, what is that thing lurking beyond the weeping willow?
2 That looks like a huge dog!
3 OMG!! That's not a huge dog, but a huge coyote!! Let's get out of here! I hear they make little dogs like us into little snacks!
4 Whew!!! It looks like the coyote is leaving. I think we're safe for now.
5 Later that day, Betsy was riding Meindert through the woods and saw it again.
6 They stopped and stared at each other.
7 I guess Mr. Coyote thought that Meindert was a bit much to take on and ran off into the woods.
