A local newspaper recently stated, the local "coyotes weigh around 20-30 pounds and are found statewide, anywhere from the wilderness to inside major cities." The 'yotes Stumpy and I see, daily, appear much larger than that. I guess they could be coydogs, but they look all coyote to me. Here's one of the 30 pounders (not my picture).
I wish I had a better camera. We see one coyote, almost every night, that I swear to dog is bigger than a large German Shepherd!
We also have a mature 3 legged coyote that visits regularly. I wonder how this guy made it to maturity on 3 legs. I resist putting food out for him, because he tugs at my heart strings. He does however, help himself to the bird bath and quail food.
Stumpy makes the last check of the night, scanning the neighborhood for intruders.
