Occasionally I see dog prints in the dust filled road out in front of camp. I haven't seen anyone walk or drive by in weeks. No dogs out for a walk. Could this be a coyote? I hear them most every night in the desert. Not once have I heard any here.
I finished off my store-bought roasted chicken. I didn't want the carcass sitting in my trash for a week or so. I took the bones and all for a walk leaving them on top of a stump a few hundred yards behind camp. That night I heard coyote singing for the first time since we've been here. The next morning I checked. The stump was clean. The coyote (more than one) were very happy.
